Even this challenging situation would ease
Some ways of using our time on internet productively is to
1. check on motivation topics, positive living, teachings of Buddhism etc - this is to enrich us spiritually.
2. Wikipedia and Google are best sites for facts and events - it can be anything from history to the unique events that are happening around you - this is to widen your knowledge
3. choose a hobby or identify an underdeveloped talent and start learning more about it from the internet There are many examples wherein such hobbies or hidden talents become revenue generators.
4.Like Mohan sir has said enlisting on websites like ISC, if you love nature and photography (indiannaturewatch), if you love drawing ( many free drawing courses are there online).
So there are many ways for us to utilize our time on the internet to improve many things from our knowledge to our revenue.
But unfortunately, many people unnecessarily waste their time in other activities. There are some sites wherein you can post and get some earnings also. I find ISC very useful for learning and at the same time making a small earning also. You can make your own blogger and there are ways to make it attractive and earn some money. Like this internet is very useful for learners and students in both ways. But it is the individual who has to decide how he makes use of the available facility.
Some people are fascinated with whatsapp or facebook or similar places and enjoy it though it is not a creative way to pass time or develop ones imaginativeness.
There are many sites like ISC where there are immense opportunities for not only passing time but to learn and increase ones knowledge. Those who are already knowledgeable can share their with others. So in my opinion passing time in such sites is preferable.
Knowledge is power.
