According to Pew Internet & American Life, Internet users are very likely to say that they expect the Web to be a source of information on health care, government agencies, news, and shopping. About 80% of Internet users say they expect the Web to have information in these topic areas. Here are my picks on where to find the best information in each area:
Health Care: HealthFinder, sponsored by the US Dept of Health and Human Services, provides information to consumers about prevention, diseases and remedies, links to interactive health quizzes and more.
Shopping: When it comes to new items Froogle is the best general shopping resource around. Search for a product and it will return a comparative shopping list. For hard-to-find, or used items, it’s tough to beat eBay.
