The millennials love the Internet- there is no question about it. Thanks to the prevalence of mobile phones and the fact that the users in India are projected to double by 2022 itself, most Indians have Internet access 24/7. However, it’s interesting to know how the millennials are spending their time online. The following are 6 of the most popular ways:
1. Social Media
Social media is becoming more and more popular and the millennials have started to go beyond social connections and networking. They are looking for ways to become social media influencers by posting interesting/useful content and increasing the number of their followers. Many are also using platforms like Instagram for affiliate marketing in which they get to earn money by recommending select products to others.
2. Online Casinos
Online casinos entered the Indian market only a few years ago but they have already become popular across the country. This is because there is otherwise no gambling industry in the country, no thanks to legal restrictions. However, online casinos like LeoVegas are open to Indians and they can play a slew of games like poker, slots, roulette, etc. with real money to win loads of money depending on their luck and strategy. Many of these platforms also give exciting offers like sign-up bonuses, free spins, etc. to attract millennials who are new to the industry.

The Internet is not for entertainment only. It has many other uses as well including online learning. Thanks to platforms like Udemy and Coursera, the millennials are able to progress in their careers by learning new skills that are relevant to their line or work and interests. They can take these courses anywhere they want and at a pace that they are comfortable with.
