A limitation of early studies on Internet penetration was the focus on physical access as sole measure of digital inequalities. Current studies explore a wide range of inequalities in patterns of use and skills. Through a survey of 1,044 university students in South Africa, this study examines the pattern of Internet use among these students, their various online activities and what these activities reveal about their use of the Internet to participate as citizens in society.
