Contrary to the observation that young adults do not rely on internet news, there is increasing research evidence that proves the opposite. This is not only supported by the increased access to internet connection gadgets but also the increasing connectivity and use of personal broadband that facilitate the daily consumption of internet information. With the assumption that internet news can range from social media platforms to other news sites, for instance, news posts, the youth not only consume such information directly but also without their knowledge, as they go about the daily activities and engagement with friends (Chu & Kim, 2011). In the same way, the sharing of data is considered critical among young adults due to the efforts to stay relevant, interconnected, and abreast of the most trending topic. In this case, young adults consume internet news daily, with some of the activities and internet use, resulting in unintentional information discovery and subsequent consumption of internet news.

In application, the respective information access and consumption based on the internet news not only follows particular behaviour but also forms patterns in terms of interests and most visited news sites hence understanding the young adult’s behaviour. With information on the youth consumption of the internet, the information and news development companies have the option to develop even policy changing knowledge, with the target of these websites for suggestion and access to the targeted audience (Kapoor et al., 2018). In the same way, employers and education or career development training institutions have an interest in understanding the young adult’s favorite websites, with the use of such information critical in decision making and marketing of the targeted audience.
