A new study from MIT researchers finds that the Silk Road is changing rapidly.
They have been examining how people use and navigate the online world, and they find that in 2017, the Silk Route had a much bigger share of the world’s population than in the past.
Silk Road users, for example, have increased their number of friends by more than 40 percent in the last three years.
The study, titled “Trends in Online Use and Use in the Silk Roads,” was published online this week in the journal Cyberpsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking.
The researchers found that the amount of people who use the SilkRoad is on the rise.
They say it has changed significantly in the years since it was launched in 2013, but it’s still a small part of the overall internet.
But that’s no longer the case.
In 2017, just 7.6 percent of the internet’s users used the Silkroad, down from a high of 20 percent in 2014.
In the first half of 2017, more than a third of the global population, or approximately 1.3 billion people, used the web.
That figure is higher than in any year since 2013.
But while the internet is a lot more connected, it’s not all roses.
Some people still use it in an attempt to keep up with what’s happening in the real world.
“Some people use it to keep themselves connected, but that’s not the case for all,” said researcher Rachael Smith.
She and her colleagues examined data from more than 200,000 people who used the site, using a different approach than previous research.
They focused on how many people used the internet in their home country and compared it to other countries in the world.
They found that people in Europe and North America use more the internet than people in Asia and Africa, the same areas where Silk Road thrived.
That suggests the Silk route is gaining a lot of traction in the West, but still needs to expand in other parts of the globe.
The report finds that people who live in the Middle East use the internet at a much higher rate than people living in Africa.
The Middle East, however, is not alone.
The survey also found that in Asia, the people who spend most time on the Silk road use it for a very different reason: they want to stay connected to their friends and family.
People in Africa and Asia use the site to stay in touch with friends and relatives, but people in the Americas and Europe use it mostly for business.
The results of the survey were based on anonymized data, meaning they didn’t include a lot details about the people they interviewed.
They did say though that the internet has become much more connected than before, and that that has increased the likelihood of people using it in a specific way.
“Our findings suggest that people are using the internet for a variety of purposes in the future, and as a result, the extent to which these use patterns are related to one another and to their social networks and the types of communication they engage in is evolving,” Smith said.
The new study is one of the first to show how much people use the web in different countries.
While some countries still have large numbers of people on the internet, other countries are catching up.
China, which had the most people on board in 2017 with over 70 million people, is catching up in 2018.
And countries like India and South Africa have been moving toward more decentralization.
Smith hopes her work will help other researchers develop better tools to measure these patterns.
“I think it will give researchers a better understanding of the types and patterns of people and their use of the web, and how that will inform the types, and the kinds of policies and programs that will help the web evolve,” Smith told NBC News.
In 2018, the United States also saw a spike in internet use.
About 7.5 percent of people in America use the Internet, but more than 9.6 million people use that same number of devices, according to the US Census Bureau.
That’s a bigger share than ever before.
But there’s still room for improvement.
People use the Web more than ever in the US and in other countries, and while that’s a good thing, it could mean people don’t have a good understanding of how the Internet works.
“The internet can be very powerful,” said Smith.
“It’s not just for communication and browsing, but for a lot, a lot different purposes.
But you have to be careful when you’re using the web.”
