Abstract: This study explores types of internet activities as a factor related to the students' perceived technological self-efficacy in Web 2.0 digital competence in the Russian higher education context. The "Web 2.0 basic digital competence of university students" (COBADI) questionnaire was translated and adapted from Spanish to collect the answers from 205 students. Students' profiles were identified through cluster analysis. Multiple regression analysis was used to examine the relationship between each digital competence, the type of internet use and the place of connection controlling for the participants' gender and age. The results of the analysis revealed a positive relationship between the students' use of the internet for socialising and their perceived Web 2.0 communication digital competence. There were no significant differences in gender in the students' perceived self-efficacy of their Web 2.0 digital competence.
