Less than one-fifth of Americans say they are going wild with their own personal websites.  Just 18% report they’ve created their own web page compared with 82% who have not.

So, just who are going digital?  More men than women maintain their own websites — 21% to 14%, respectively.  Not surprisingly, younger Americans and more affluent residents nationwide beat out their counterparts on this question.  21% of those younger than 45 have launched their own online page compared with 15% of those 45 and above.  22% of Americans with an annual household income of $50,000 or more are likely to have a website.  This compares with 16% who earn less than $50,000.  Region does come into play as well.  More people in the Northeast and West have their own URL than do those in the Midwest and South.

    The rise of the blog makes self-expression on the web easy, perhaps this is why there is little desire to have a personal website.
