The Internet in current times is one of our everyday essentials. We use it on our laptops, mobile phones, tablets etc. We use it for many purposes like social, entertainment, work, school… However, have, you ever been wondering how the adventure with the Internet has started and how it has changed over years?
According to Sixrevisions.com the Internet started to be created in 1969. Surprisingly, on the beginning it was used mainly for military needs. Email was developed relatively quickly in 1971. It has been gradually improved by developing PC modem, many protocols and systems, web pages, browser etc.
Finally, since 2003 MySpace has been hitting a peak of its popularity. In 2004 social platforms started to be improved and play a more significant role in society. Then in the same year was invented Facebook and later in 2005 Youtube and Twitter in 2006. It gave a chance to communicate with each other even on two ends of the world. It gave us an access to many information and fun.
Although these inventions were watershed and should make our lives easier it seems they had a bad impact on our society. Look at young generation, where almost everyone is staring at his mobile’s screen even when being around friends and family. Can you imagine your day without checking your social platforms? The technology still moves on and gives us more opportunities. In that case I am wondering if all goes in good direction and if there is any way to learn people using the Internet more reasonably? I would like to actually leave you with this reflection and short video about the dangers of social media (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HffWFd_6bJ0).
