The Significance of Social Networks

In today’s generation, the majority of students are able to connect with one another through the wonderful world of the Internet and all that it has to offer. Social networks provide students with an easier way to interact with each other for any reason. Through social media and various applications, people are able to stay connected with each other, something that is very important to have in our world today.

The way in which our technological devices and applications are progressing makes it seem as if there are new applications that are becoming popular every week. It plays such a large role in our lives today that many people are putting a large portion of their personal lives on their accounts. By doing this, it puts them at a larger risk of being hacked, cyberbullied, or attacked. Although social networking allows people to get closer to one another through sharing information on news feeds, posting photos of recent events, or obtaining information through various news sources, social media has its positives and its negatives, something that all users should be conscientious of.

The Significance of Web 2.0

Today’s modern world revolves around the Web and the Internet. It is an essential item for every individual to survive in the 21st century. It allows us to do anything we want and more: communicate, entertain, publish, share, and many other actions. For most people, the Internet plays a large role in our daily routine, whether it deals with work, school, or for leisure. With the majority of schools and universities incorporating the Web and the Internet into their studies, the evolution of the Web never ceases to astound people at its significance, compared to what it used to be. Between college and my hobbies, I am constantly associated with the¬†Web and the Internet, and all that it has to offer. It has changed my perspective on how the world functions, and it has impacted my life greatly.

I started using the Web and the Internet on a regular basis towards the end of middle school, when I received my first “smartphone.” I started learning about all of the useful applications that would help me with school and my studies in computer science when I went to high school. As more applications that were designated towards social media and entertainment purposes started to come out, more and more people began to spend more time on the Web and the Internet, myself included. As I got more accustomed to my time on the Internet, I started encouraging my friends and family to start using it, as it was something that had gained popularity. It has always been a major part of my life since I first started using it, and I am positive it is something that will stay important to me for a very long time, until something overtakes the Web — possibly Web 3.0.
