According to a survey carried out on February 28th and 29th, 2000, among
1,000 people aged 18 years and over, by the CSA for the newspaper group
"Le Parisien - Aujourd'hui en France", everybody has now heard of the
Internet. Only 1 % of French people have never heard of it, as opposed to
13 % in May 1996. Although they have heard it mentioned, 21 % are not
however very sure of what the Internet is. 46 % know what it is, but have
never used it. 32 % have used it, 15 % on a regular basis. The population
least concerned by the Internet are pensioners, 92 % of whom have never
used it.
31 % would be prepared to communicate and make friends via the Internet.
26 % would be happy to stay at home and do telework via the Internet, 21
% would pay their income tax via the Internet and 20 % would be happy to
make purchases.
58 % of French people today consider that the Internet is limited to a
small minority of people, as opposed to 66 % in March 1999.
Although 76 % think that Internet represents a major step forward for the
liberty of expression, the majority of these people believe that controls
are needed to avoid abuse of any kind.
