The 2019 compilation of research and stories explains what’s key to a healthier internet across five issues, from personal experience to global concerns.
Mozilla has published the 2019 Internet Health Report — the third annual examination of the internet, its impact on society and how it influences our everyday lives.
The Report paints a mixed picture of what life online looks like today. We’re more connected than ever, with humanity passing the ‘50% of us are now online’ mark earlier this year. And, while almost all of us enjoy the upsides of being connected, we also worry about how the internet and social media are impacting our children, our jobs and our democracies.
Millions of people were realizing that widespread, laissez-faire sharing of our personal data, the massive growth and centralization of the tech industry, and the misuse of online ads and social media was adding up to a big mess.
The 2019 Internet Health Report examines the story behind these stories, using interviews with experts, data analysis and visualization, and original reporting. Download a copy below.
