How do the very rich use the Web?

Why porn, of course. New survey from the Affluence Collaborative finds that 38 percent of those earning more than $500,000 visit adult sites, compared with 23 percent for the rest of the population. Other activities: Checking financial accounts (86 percent), making a restaurant reservation (61 percent vs. 13 percent for the rest of the population), and reading the news (70 percent vs. 44 percent). From the Wealth Report:

There was one area where the wealthy lagged the rest of the population: wasting time. The wealthy were less likely than the rest of the population to "casually surf the web and pass time."

If that's true, I would imagine that the wealthy are not using social networking sites as much as the population at large.
