How the Internet has changed everyday life

It’s hard to imagine a world without the Internet and the vast majority of people would credit it as one of the best inventions of all time. Just how much has the Internet changed everyday life for us however? shutterstock_141377746Everything is easier   If there’s one thing the Internet does a particularly good job of, it’s making our lives easier. We can do all of our grocery shopping without leaving our house, communicate with people on the other side of the world at the click of a button, pay our bills, download films and music, do our banking and even tax our cars. It has created new jobs   One of the best things to come from the Internet is how many new jobs it has created. A selection of some of the professions that didn’t exist before the world wide web came into our lives include:

  • Social media manager
  • Web developer
  • SEO consultant
  • App developer
  • UX designer
  • Cloud services specialist

It has changed how businesses are run  The Internet has totally transformed that way that modern businesses are run. Companies now have the freedom to work with international clients easily and efficiently, employees can work remotely, shops can sell products online as well as in-store and many everyday systems and processes have moved online for ease and convenience. With so many businesses now almost entirely dependent on their IT systems, it’s crucial that this function is managed correctly. Often, it’s easier to outsource this to a company that offers service management solutions. Communication There is absolutely no doubt that the Internet has changed the way that we communicate. Social media sites mean that we can connect and network with people from all over the world. Emailing allows us to contact anyone at any time of the day in an instant and phone services such as FaceTime and Skype mean that we can still get that face-to-face interaction that you sometimes lose online. shutterstock_336534503 Travel is easier than ever  Back in the day, if you wanted to go on holiday you had to go into a travel agent. Nowadays however, you simply scour the Internet for the best deal and within minutes you can have you flight, accommodation, rental car, travel insurance and even all your excursions booked. Thanks to GPS it also means that travelling by car is much easier because we no longer have to rely on a map to get us from A to B. Even when we’re on foot, Google Maps means that we never have to ask a stranger for directions ever again. News is instant  One of the industries that the Internet has had the biggest impact on is journalism. A couple of decades ago, people found out the news when they picked up their paper in the morning. In today’s technologically advanced world however, news is constant and it’s instant. Highlighting the huge impact that social media has had on the world, Twitter has been cited as one of the best news sources around. In fact, in several cases, the social networking site has broken huge news stories before even the online version of newspapers have had a chance to report on it.
