Coming to a systematic understanding of internet and its effects in this study it was intended to investigate the users' viewpoints, the way of usage and how it was integrated into daily and social life. A qualitative study was undertaken to get a richer understanding of 20 internet users' perceptions and data was analyzed using thematic analysis. Findings were presented under phenomenological description of internet, purposes of internet usage, and effects of internet on daily/social life themes.
