FYE : For Your Entertainment Whitehead defines entertainment as "what people do with their freedom" we can say that people are entertained when they are voluntarily undergoing an experience that interests them and gives them some amount of pleasure or release. Entertainment activities :talking, gossiping; reading newspapers and books; listening to music and radio; watching movies and television; practicing sports; attending live performances of sports and arts; playing games; gambling; shopping, cooking, gardening, fishing, and other hobbies; eating, drinking, flirting, and smoking; tourist traveling, visiting museums, and going to amusement parks. Talking and gossiping have become chat rooms, forum, discussions, social media (twitter, Facebook); reading news on the web is becoming increasingly popular with e- News editions, portals, niche news portals, columns; the previously solitary video- game experience has found new meaning in the networked game era; shopping has gigantic proportions on the web, with e-commerce and augmented by the thrills of on- line auction and web store experience.
