How has internet changed the world

Updated on January 25, 2011

The internet has changed and shrunk the world a billion miles. The distances, borders, and geography do not apply to our world any more, and it jumps over many social, racial and economics bounds of this world as if they do not exist. Internet has also enabled a change for those in search to be able to do things from the comfort of their own homes to earn money. Internet is a major step towards uniting the world, bringing people closer and to bring about a change in this world. Not only that, internet is also the collective brain of the world the way I see it.

Internet serves the functions for a marketplace, a freelance community, a shrink for your daily problems, a mode for people to communicate who are separated by geographical distance or parted by boundaries of our physical world. Internet is a place for people to look for a job, a place for them to vent, a place for them to meet up and be happy... you name it and the internet offers it all. The internet is a world within our world and has a brain and breath of it's own. Internet is the element that has caused this change and is the mode responsible for the ongoing change in today's world.

Internet has as many uses as the humans can possibly think of. We can just stay home and do anything on the internet which used to require for us to go to local grocery store, market or a Mall. Now we can stay home and pick and choose out of our favorite shops and get the products delivered online right off the internet and it's as real as the tall glass buildings in today's world.

We can hunt for jobs from home, play games from home, look for potential mates from home, engage into world debates, do our studies, research from home, gain higher education and earn degrees from home all using the internet. There's hardly anything that we can do in the 'Real World' that we can not do online.

      It's a very interesting topic indeed, a topic that has not been fully grasped by us, and I doubt if we comprehend the true promise of change it can bring to this world.

      So far within a couple of decades it has so much changed the way we think and do things and yet the promise of tomorrow is enhormouns. It fascinated me just to think about it.

      writeido~Thanks for answering my question. Very true, the internet has changed the world, making the world a much smaller place. Ideas as well as misinformation travel in the time it takes to blink. It seems we no longer need to carry knowledge in our heads when we can have that same knowledge at our finger tips--Just Google if you forget or don't know something or another. Umm...I'm thinking about it.
