Facebook.

And look for things usually google (ie a removalist, a cleaner, information about a product).

BOM site (I like to follow the weather).

Follow the Weather Zone Forums if there is a big weather event.

News.

A business forum.

I sell on Facebook.

Shop - usually Ozsale or Brands Exclusive.

Market research.

I build and run other people's websites.

Run my own business online (several actually).

Look at links through other people's Facebook posts on youtube or other interesting sites.

I also have a Roller Derby blog which I need to get into more often.

Run all my finances online (ie banking and paypal) if you want to get specific!!
