Internet in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was introduced in the late 1990s. Being relatively new, its effects and impact on Saudi society are still in their infancy. A survey-based study was conducted to measure these effects, monitor their influence, project possible long-term develop-ments, and define early measures that would best harness this new technology. Covering a span of two years, this study also identifies and documents any noticeable shifts in perspectives. This work presents the findings and observations drawn from this study and is based on the direct interpretation and cross-analysis of survey responses.
