Internet refers to the combined collection of academic, commercial, and government networks connected over international telecommunication backbones and routed using IP addressing. The internet is communication between computers that contains information from all over the world by various organizations, individuals etc. In many occasions people have confused the internet with the World Wide Web but they are not the same. According to the University of Chicago the World Wide Web refers to a collection of files residing on computers called web servers, rendered in programs called web browsers, and transported via http over the Internet. The term “web” derives from the files’ ability to be easily interlinked together. The internet is used by people to know what is going on in the world in terms of politics, communication, news, business, education, entertainment, weather etc. with all these many people are logging into the internet to enlighten themselves. My research will focus on the effects of internet on society today both the positives and negatives.
