Can you imagine life without the Internet? It might be really hard to believe that there was no such thing as the Internet even fifteen or twenty years ago. How did people communicate with each other back then if now we can do it via email? How was it to grow up without playing various computer games? My kids are going to grow up always having the Internet to help them with anything and I am going to grow old being aware of the fact that the Net is always there for me. So what can people like me do on the Internet?
1. Check emails. I will be honest with you: I don’t even remember when was the last time I wrote a letter on a piece of paper. Sending emails rather than letters is so obvious to me that I don’t even bother to have any envelopes at home anymore.
2.Connect with others on various social networking sites such as Facebook for example. It is a child’s play to locate your high school friends these days. Almost everybody does it in his spare time. I am no exception to this rule.
3. Play games. It turns out that not only children play computer games on the Internet these days as more and more adults join the fun as well. Who said that online fun is reserved for the young ones only?
4. Read news. I hear of more and more newspapers going bankrupt these days because who reads newspapers anymore? Probably only the oldest members of our society do it since they are simply used to it. Others, including myself, get all their news from the Internet exclusively and it doesn’t involve me buying a newspaper each day in the morning. Also, reading news on the Internet doesn’t cost me anything.
