Why Does It Matter?
How does internet matter to us? We live in a modern era where technologies such as The Internet is considered a need and want. Not everyone needs it but majority needs it. Internet somehow completes one’s life. How so? Well when you come to think about it, most of our leisure time, we spend it on The Internet. When we study or work, we used the Internet as well.
I somehow cannot imagine a world without the Internet. True back in the old days before Internet was made, humans were able to live without it. But then, that was back then. Now it’s different. The invention of the Internet isn’t the first and it won’t be the last. We live in a world where people are hungry for knowledge. Through that hunger and curiousity, new inventions will be made and the Internet will be a part of it.
How does Internet help us? How does it change us? Well the big change that the Internet has done was mostly communication. Back in the old days, it was hard to communicate with those that was staying or studying abroad. Letters and telegram was used to keep in touch. Yes, telephone already exist, but then the charges when wanting to call someone abroad is very pricey and it still is. But now the internet has changed that. By using the right kind of media, one can communicate with someone abroad fast and easy. Social media such as Facebook , Twitter and Instagram. One can even go to a chat room such as Window Messenger, Yahoo Messenger and even better Skype. All of these media tools allows anyone to connect with anyone abroad.
Internet is able to bring family and friends together despite the time and distance. But sometimes it can also make one anti-social. Especially when they are out with friends or families. Some people can be too caught up with the Internet to an extent they start ignoring the people that are right in front of them. Some people doesn’t know the boundaries when using the Internet.
Other than that, cell phones nowadays change how one communicates. Cell phones nowadays such as Smartphones includes internet. With a suitable and affordable data plan, one can use the internet anytime, anywhere. Remember back then when cell phones were only made to communicate? Well not anymore. Cell phones nowadays able us to do just about everything. Surf the internet, connect to the social networks account that the user have, play online games, listen to music and even better, they are able to download any suitable file they want for their cell phone. That is how impressive both internet and technology is now.
All of this modernization of technology isn’t the end. As long as we humans live, and as long as the hunger of knowledge exist, it will never end. New things that we not know about or playing in our minds are probably in the making. Who knows. With modern technologies, anything is possible as long as one has the will and brains to do so.
