In the face of pandemic-induced lockdowns, the internet kept Americans connected. We scoured the news for vital information, shifted to virtual work where possible, and shopped and socialized online. As the lockdowns lifted and the United States began navigating its way out of the pandemic, we examine how Americans spent their time online, and discuss implications for those on both sides of the digital divide. We find that work and productivity-related consumption increased significantly, and maintained a dominant position throughout the pandemic cycle, suggesting that a shift to work-related digital platforms is more than a passing trend. Attention to news and public services was far bouncier, fluctuating in response to policy changes and rollouts of key information. While social media usage increased slightly, it saw the smallest pandemic bounce, and tapered off in early 2021, dropping closer to pre-pandemic levels.
