Imagine the time that we used to receive information as one way, sender and receiver, and that was it. People thought that ‘old media’ was the ultimate communication method.
But then BOOM, the Internet was invented, and since then, the world has changed and everything that we do now is through the internet, school, shopping, socializing and so on. And that is amazing that the Internet became a fundamental tool within our daily life, we cannot live without it.
The Internet gave us instant connectivity around the world and it changed the way how we can socialize, on my Instagram I follow people all around the globe and I can communicate with them with an instant click. Thus eliminating the distance within us.
Although there are recurring problems within the Internet, for example, I watch a lot of YouTubers but I like humour that is dedicated to an older audience, but when we enter the Disney era, a lot of their content started to change or taken down, because it did not compile with the established rules of what Disney considered appropriate. So all the Internet had to follow these rules if they wanted to get into that audience. Another issue with the Internet can be, censoring the competition such as what Facebook is dong with “Internet.org” as Mike Elgan criticize the article The surprising truth about Facebook’s Internet.org, the Internet should not have a limitation, whatever is offered on this platform restrict users from looking what is available on the Internet.
The corporation should not have a strong say about what is allow or not on the Internet, I am tired of looking at kids-friendly content on YouTube and every corporation trying to follow these rules in order to get an audience.
