We use the internet every day but how many of us can actually explain what this medium really is. Not many, right? The Internet is the interconnection of billion computer networks globally that link various countries with the intention to exchange information on diverse topics. In other words, the internet is a global library that can be accessed just at the click of a button. Although the internet was initially used only for military purposes back in the 1960’s, today, the internet has brought about a radical change in our culture, technology, and economy.
In today’s world, the meaning and basic purpose of the internet has changed a lot more than expected. It has become one of the basic necessities for the majority. It started off as a base to provide information, but it has become a universal solution to most of our daily problems. Let’s take an example of a day of a commoner named Sam. Sam gets up in the morning gets a weather report, then he feels like making coffee and orders some milk. Then he wants to know who won the elections opens a newspaper application. He later figures out the best route to take to office with the help of the internet. He reaches office and gets emails regarding work and talks to his wife over a video chat. Thus, internet has become an inevitable part of Sam’s life.
