Health Online and the Digital Divide

The Pew Internet & American Life Project offers a trilogy of items about how and where information about health can be found online (and how the digital divide is at play within the online health arena).  Plus, The Web Returns to Health from the Benton Foundation.

Ninety-five million Americans — about 80 percent of online adults — have searched the Web for health information in the past year, and the overwhelming majority have been disappointed. More than 70 percent of those searchers either did not find what they were looking for or had a hard time knowing what to believe, according to market research studies by Jupiter Research and Yankelovich Inc.
