Google was founded in 1998, just 17 years ago. In the past 20 years, it is interesting to see how things have changed so much. The birth of the internet for example, at that day and age nobody could fathom what an important part of life it would be.
In the twenty first century, its importance has escalated from a small military base with 4 computers to a massive part of everyday life. Now with the development of science, there is now wi-fi in airplanes and on trains.
Google is the most famous website on the internet, so much so that there have been slogans along with the site, like “google it”. Taking over its competitors bing and yahoo, google is more than a search engine. The site now has its own phones, cloud storage devices, organising photo drives etc. They are giants in the cyber world, and have taken over other massive sites such as youtube and songza.
In the span of almost 20 years, the internet has become an essential part of life. As has google, the site grossing at around $500 billion dollars has revolutionised the game for cyber super giants. The most fascinating part of the internet is that, everything in the world seems to be in reach. The world is a giant place but with the help of the internet, you can be chatting with your friends in Tokyo when you’re on the beach in Hawaii.
In a world full of hate, greed and cruelty the internet can help you find people who are on the same wavelength as you, bring together communities and give solace to the broken hearted. The world is your oyster with accessible wifi. The question is, will we utilise it?
