Half of the inhabitants of the Far East consider virtual life more interesting than real life. This is the only Russian region where people like life on the Internet more than the real one.

This is the data of a survey conducted by Otkritie Bank, dedicated to the birthday of the Internet, which is celebrated on May 17. More than 60% of our fellow citizens believe that virtual life cannot replace real life, but almost the same number are completely unprepared to give up the Internet. 34% of Russians surveyed consider real and virtual life to be equally interesting.

The three most important functions of the Internet, respondents named the ability to search for information, ordering goods and services, and money transfers. In fourth place - watching videos and movies, in fifth - communication in social networks. A little less than 20% of Russians are grateful to the Internet for sports broadcasts and game content.

The main disadvantages of the Internet were the lack of verification of the accuracy of information, an abundance of dangerous content for children, and a lack of tolerance on social networks.

More than half of the respondents are sure that providers and social networks should regulate the Internet. A quarter of the respondents believe that this should be done by the state. Approximately the same number believe that there is no need to regulate the Internet at all.

Almost 60% of Russian residents are not ready to give up the Internet and consider it an obligatory part of their life. About a third of Russians are ready to give up partially. 12% of respondents stated that they are fully prepared to break with virtual reality and have such experience.
