The Web 2.0 has had an enormous impact on my life and unto other people who are of my generation. I practically grew up with having unrestricted access to the internet through computers, phones, and tablets. I feel as if I have been spoiled. For example, if I were to go on vacation where there was no wifi then I would feel disconnected from the outside world. I’ve become so accustomed to having information available to me at any time, all it takes is looking at my phone and opening any app that has what I’m looking for.
An example of how fast the information online travels is actually similar to something we discussed in class the first day. Personally, I found out most of my news from either twitter or Facebook, and sometimes word of mouth. It’s rare that I’ll be watching CNN at 6 o’clock and discover news for the first time. Instead, it will be through the power of the Web that I learn of things that are going in the world. The Web has significantly changed my life, and it will continue to do so for the rest of my life.
