Today, more than half of the global population uses the internet, and while many see the technology as a positive tool, there are growing concerns about over-use, per the latest Internet Trends report by Mary Meeker, Bond Capital managing partner and "Queen of the 'Net."

Why it matters: Businesses are adapting to — and even building tools for — users limiting their use of mobile devices and online apps like video streaming and social media.

By the numbers:

  • 51% of the world — or 3.8 billion people — were internet users last year, up from 49% (3.6 billion) in 2017 and only 24% in 2009. Growth slowed to about 6% in 2018.
  • The percentage of U.S. adults who say they're "almost always online" has grown from 21% three years ago to 26%.
  • The percentage of U.S. adults trying to limit personal smartphone use has grown from 47% in 2017 to 63% in 2018.
  • Apple, Google, Facebook, and YouTube have all rolled out tools to help users monitor their usage.
  • People are more concerned about privacy than a year ago (but these high concerns are moderating).
  • Encrypted messaging and Web traffic are rising.
  • And yet, U.S. users still view the internet as a positive for themselves (88%) and society (70%), though both metrics have slightly decreased since 2014.

U.S. Latinos earn less, die earlier in segregated areas

U.S. Latinos have a higher life expectancy and earn more yearly income when they live in racially mixed neighborhoods compared to areas that are predominantly Black or Latino, an analysis finds.

Why it matters: The study by the University of California Berkeley’s Othering and Belonging Institute released this week shows the physical and economic toll on Latinos as cities become more segregated.

A massive search and rescue operation is underway after a portion of a 12-story condo building in Surfside, Florida, collapsed early Thursday morning, according to AP.

The latest: 51 people who were "supposedly residing" in the building at the time of the collapse have not yet been accounted for, Miami-Dade County Commissioner Sally Heyman said on CNN Thursday morning.

The Biden administration has issued a 30-day extension to the temporary halt in residential evictions, the CDC announced on Thursday.

Why it matters: The eviction moratorium, implemented to prevent a wave of evictions caused by pandemic-related economic decline, was scheduled to expire on June 30.
