  • Today's society, it's a need when really it's a luxury and a want.

  • I think it depends on an individuals situation. For someone who uses it to play games and suft the net, its a want. For someone who has a legitimate job or business at home, its a need. For somone who wants to further their education, but can't attend a campus for whatever reason, its a need.

  • TOTAL NEED! You don't "need" the internet to survive.

  • Its a want...
    But now days without it, life would be alot more complicated. Many forms are online. school is online. bills are done online.. So I guess it is a luxury..
    I dont NEED a car, I could walk more, take a taxi, carpool.. but it would make my life alot more difficult to not have one..

  • It's only just a want if you have no need for it.
    I do online classes, so it's a need for me. People run businesses online, so it's a need for them. On and on....
    It's nice to have facebook to keep in contact, but it's not a need. As the world changes, the internet becomes more of a need.

  • well, if i want a copy of my paystub i have to go online, my company no longer gives them to us. we also have to sign up for our insurance and other open enrollment November thingies online, so its a need. also, school makes some of the kids' homework online, so if i didn't have it at home we would have to go somewhere to get it. sadly, its a need.
