    i know most of activities that are done on the net:

    email
    forums
    groups
    chat
    blogging
    surfing (merely looking for interesting site)
    online banking/payments (eBay, Paypal. and online banks)

    Are you an information scientist? This sounds like something an information scientist (or a student of information science) would do. I have books and hundreds of lectures notes on this stuff. I've got 2 modules of it next year >.>

    Theres a lot of things you can do online. Video chatting, internet telephoning, scams, fraud, books, homework. I'm not quite sure what you are trying to achieve with this study though.
