On March 12, the World Wide Web turns 25.

It’s come a long way since then. In 1995, just 14% of U.S. adults used the internet. 42% had never even heard of the internet, and an additional 21% were vague on the concept—”it has something to do with computers, right?”

Now: 87% of adults use the internet. 81% have a computer, 90% have a cell phone, and 46% say it would be very hard to give up the internet.

We’ve got a new report out today that looks at 15+ years of data showing the rapid growth/overall impact of the internet, in honor of the upcoming 25th anniversary of the web.

Could you imagine your life without the internet? What do you think it’d be like?
