Are You A “Wilfer?”

Image result for wilfingA poll by the financial web site YouGov.com found that nearly 70% of Internet users admit having the habit of “wilfing.” What? It’s the term that’s short for “What Was I Looking For?” For instance, you’re reading e-mail when you think about researching vacation spots, which reminds you that you need to check out gym prices, so you surf from one site to another until you forget what you started out looking for. One expert said the Internet is so full of distractions, it’s easy to fall into this. Internet users over 55 are three times more likely to be wilfers than those under 25. People over 60 find themselves surfing the Internet when they really came into the room to look for their car keys.
