ESET®, the global leader in proactive digital protection, announced today the launch of GoExplore.net, the new internet initiative which curates the best of the web’s content and encourages people to explore the web safely.
With the World Wide Web reaching its 25th birthday this year, ESET has launched GoExplore.net to celebrate all things Internet. The site creates a web portal for everyone who wants to explore the online universe, upload interesting content and contribute to curating content for their fellow web surfers.
GoExplore.net will offer exclusive interviews with high-profile internet heroes, how-tos, infographics and videos, as well as surveys and poll results.
“Our new site, GoExplore.net, celebrates the very best of the web and we’re excited to be connecting with people who feel confident checking out life beyond the first page of search and want to contribute to the great content that’s featured on GoExplore.net for others to enjoy,” said Ignacio Sbampato, GoExplore.net enthusiast and ESET Chief Sales and Marketing Officer. “Our mission at ESET is to help people enjoy safer technology, so our security software is engineered to protect consumers online and allow them to explore the internet with confidence, but even we can’t help protect people who use their smartphone while driving.”
Recent research by GoExplore.net, revealed some interesting findings when it comes to consumer web surfing behavior. In a survey of 2000 people in the United States and Great Britain, GoExplore.net uncovered the risks people take when surfing the web, as well as surprising behavioral differences between the sexes.
According to GoExplore.net’s research, almost a quarter of American men (23.1 percent) aged 25-34 admit to using the internet while driving a vehicle.
In Britain, 7 percent admitting to browsing the web while driving while UK female drivers in the same age range are twice as likely (14.3 percent) to be surfing behind the wheel.
Other GoExplore.net findings include:
- Americans are almost three times (2.8 percent) as likely to use their smartphones at a funeral or religious service than Brits, with US women being seven times as likely to surf at a service than UK women.
- 10 percent of internet users say they find it difficult to find what they want on the net.
- 12.3 percent of American men aged 25-34 say they risk taking their smartphone with them to the shower or bath.
