What is the Internet Doing in Major Emerging Countries? by Lisa Vissichelli -- Digital Designer Hannah Cui -- Senior Associate, Research & Consulting

For many of us in Western developed countries, the internet is ubiquitous and part of almost everything we do. What about in emerging countries? We picked 8 major emerging countries to show the nuances of who is using the internet (adults 18+), what activities the internet is primarily used for, and how internet usage affects different populations. By drawing links between user perceptions of the internet’s influence and popular online activities, we painted a multi-dimensional picture of how internet usage impacts well-being in these emerging countries.
