Everyday life is what a person does, feels, and thinks every day. Much of everyday life is automatic in that it is driven by current features of the environment as mediated by automatic cognitive processing of those features, without any mediation by conscious choice, said John A. Bargh The sociology of everyday life is a branch of sociology. It investigates the meaning and organization of everyday life. Jack Douglas's Everyday Life Sociology is an early statement of this field.
Over the years, what people do in their everyday life has changed dramatically. Different forms of media serve different purposes in an individual’s everyday life, so people are given the opportunity to make strategic and rational choices about what form of media; watching TV, using the internet, listening to the radio, reading newspapers or reading magazines, will most effectively help to accomplish their task. However, some people are increasingly using the internet more and more everyday, over every other form of media. Even though many people feared that the Internet would not allow people to sustain quality relationships or valuable interactions, increasing numbers of people are now using the Internet as a form of communication in their everyday life.
