Abstract

The usage rate of the Internet for adolescents and youngsters is very high. Nearly 95% of adolescents and youngsters have used the Internet in 2008. Such a high rate implies that Internet services must be greatly influencing the daily lives of adolescents and youngsters. Against this backdrop, this research aims to explore the cognition and use of Internet services among adolescents and youngsters and determine its promotion effect in their lives. Results show that there are significant differences in the Internet service cognition and use among different demographic groups. By stepwise regression, this research found that the Internet services indeed influence adolescents’ and youngsters’ quality of life. Digital amusement, cultural resource reservation, network communication, and e-Business positively enhance the quality of life of adolescents and youngsters. On the other hand, the degree of cognition and use of online learning have a negative correlation on life promotion.
