(CNN) - People often go online for absolutely no reason, according to a new study.

The study from the Pew Internet and American Life Project looked at young adults between ages 18 and 29.

On any given day, 53 percent of those surveyed go online just to pass time or have fun.

And 81 percent have killed time that way - at least on occasion.

The same group does sometimes surf the web with a specific purpose in mind.
