The Internet and Our Everyday Life

The internet is a common part of our lives today, but it has not been always like today. The internet was developed
starting with the years 1960, but the first structures that resembled with what we see today were implemented in the mid 80’s. Initially, the system was developed with the purpose of easing communication within large companies. At the beginning of the 90’s the system was expanded to individuals, resulting in the internet, a global network that connects people everywhere.

By that time, only some privileged people had access to this system. However, the potential was huge, so it was fully exploited by the companies that realized its importance. Quickly, people replaced their daily movie at TV with internet games, online movies and with social networks. By that time, it was supposed that the internet would kill television, just as television killed the radio in the 50’s. It was not like that, but the internet started to occupy the majority of time for a large number of people. At the beginning, it was only a method to spend free time, to read news, to browse reviews, to play games and to send mails. Later, when the companies started to communicate one with the other over the internet, employees started to use the internet at work too.

Today, a blackout of internet even for a second would mean a catastrophe for the whole world. From money transactions to socializing, everything is done with the help of internet; therefore, we can call it as a part of our life.
