Abstract This study attempts to explicate the concept of Internet literacy and examines the relationship between various variables, including Internet literacy, Internet risk, risk coping, Internet enjoyment, and life satisfaction. A model of Internet literacy was proposed in the study. Data came from the 2013 Taiwan Communication National Survey Database, which consists of various topics on Internet usage and behaviors among Taiwanese adults.

The results of the study show that younger generations do have higher Internet skills as expected, but there is no significant age difference in online information literacy (e.g., tool literacy, critical literacy, and social-structural literacy). The study also finds no gender gap in Internet skills and online information literacy. In addition, Internet skill predicts online information literacy. Both online usage frequency and education increase levels of Internet skills and online information literacy. The results of the study also demonstrate that those who have higher online information literacy have higher levels of Internet enjoyment and life satisfaction. Most people encountered Internet risks when using the Internet; in fact, 7.9% of the Internet users reported that they frequently experience cyberbullying or online harassment. Those who have higher Internet skills experience higher Internet risks, but they cope with those risks in a safer and more proactive manner. For example, they use a fake online ID, provide incomplete information, go to other websites that do not require personal information, ask someone for advice regarding what to do, or install a spam filter. On the other hand, those who have lower levels of critical literacy and social-structural literacy tended to stay in the risky online environment. The implications for education practice and future research on Internet literacy and media use are discussed.
