The Internet has changed our world almost to the point of being completely different from the world of just fifteen years ago. Of course, we had internet then, but today, it has become so widespread, and is used by so many people, that it completely revolutionized every single field of work, and every field of our lives. It made things more reachable, it made people come in contact more than they used to, and it made work easier. But how; how can such a simple thing make our lives so much better and do it in such a short amount of time? Well, we are about to figure that out.
Roughly, somewhere around the year 2000, Internet started being a widespread thing, and more and more people started having it, even in the most remote parts of the world. Thanks to that, we can now be in contact with people from half way around the globe, without having to wait for a mail from them to travel thousands of kilometers. This means that we started learning more about other cultures, and with that, we started getting more informed about various things that were happening around the world.
Also, Internet has proven to b extremely fruitful in the business sense. Nowadays, you can learn everything you want about any company in the world just by typing their name in the web search engine. And voila; you’ll get all the information you need about them, and what’s better, you can even visit their websites and get in touch with them. And because the world has become more interconnected since the start of the widespread use of the internet, you can even order stuff online from a foreign country, which is something that could have been tricky in the past.
Also, Internet makes it possible for you to look at what the other side is saying. So, in that way, you can never become the victim of propaganda, and will always have a take of the other side’s position, which is great.
But possible the biggest win of the widespread use of the internet are the social networks, which can be used anyway you want: you can use them to stay in touch with your friends, you can use them to promote yourself, you can use them to advertise your own business, or you can even use them to sell merchandise if you’re in the trade business. Also, as we have said earlier, you can even have friends from halfway around the world away, and talk to them every day for free, which is something you could never do in the past.
Come to think about it, if there were no Internet, there would probably be no globalization, which means that we would not be so interconnected, and would be just a random bunch of people who only hang out with other people from their bunch. This are just a couple of points that make it clear to us that the Internet has clearly improved our lives, which is something that should be cherished.
