Pew report: 77% of online Americans have used the Internet in connection with the war

We haven’t had a chance to closely review this Pew report, which was released today, but you might. Some tidbits:

Overall
“They are going online to get information about the war, to learn and share differing opinions about the conflict, to send and receive emails where they ponder events, express their views and offer prayers. In addition, a smaller portion of Internet users are using email to mobilize others and gain support for their views about the conflict...”

On blogs
“Our first soundings on the subject show that blogs are gaining a following among a small number of Internet users, but they are not yet a source of news and commentary for the majority of Internet users...”

On politics
One interesting note: “Internet users are more likely than non-users to support the war and to support the way President Bush is conducting the war.”
