Summary
Previous studies have shown that the Internet influences adolescents' development and their lives. Adolescents' Internet usage is simultaneously affected by variables such as demographics, personal characteristics and social interaction motives. The aim of this study is to determine what motives and gratifications influence Internet use. This study also includes a conceptual model derived from a uses-and-gratification perspective suggesting that people use the Internet to gratify their needs. Bivariate and multivariate analyses of data from the Korea Youth Panel Survey for 3,063 adolescents find that all categories considered for this study were relevant to Internet usage. Similarly, results support a theoretical approach that includes personal characteristics and social interaction motives when studying adolescents' levels of Internet use. Self-esteem, parental emotional support, attachment to friends, and the number of close friends are variables significantly related to Internet usage
