Today we have the knowledge of the world at our fingertips. Through desktops, tablets, and phone people have access to the biggest database in the known universe. The internet is always growing and more people using it every day. I personally use the internet for many different things. Being an overworked college student I use the internet mainly to do research for class, check grades/posts teachers send out, and to watch YouTube. All the old ways of keeping in touch and getting information like mail, newspaper, T.V. are all online now. The convergence of all the mass communication are now on some digital media platform. Many people use the internet for work, being connected, and entertainment. I try to not be on social media because I like the option to fall off the grid if I need to. I do have a few profiles mainly from peer pressure and my parents making me stay in contact with my extended family in some form and this is the only way where I don’t have to actually contact them but where I can say “Yeah mom I stay in contact with Aunt Elena we are friends on Facebook”. The internet is constantly growing and will continue to do so.
