It can be used for video and teleconferencing, finding information, buying products, downloading programmes and music and much more. I think that the internet has helped society a great deal. On the other hand, it does have its disadvantages as anything can be found on the internet, whether it is good or bad. If the internet is in the wrong hands it can be a very bad thing as it could be held responsible for things like rape etc. I am saying this because it is very easy for an adult to go into a chat room and pretend that they are a teenager.
Now, I rely heavily on Internet to get resources and information. What do I do when people ask me questions? I tell them to get on the Internet. The Internet also has changed my life style; I now seldom write to my friends, instead I send emails to them, I do not go to store to shop but I buy things through the Internet. The Internet virtually covers every category that relate to our daily life such as news, media, health, government and many more.
With the deregulation of the Internet in 1991, the federal government opened the door industry to the potential of advertising twenty-four hours a day, almost free of charge to anyone in the world who accessed their link. While it is true that this new advertising is not seemingly as direct, it does provide a marketing tool that directly targets interested parties. Their largest problem with traditional marketing stems from the fact that, in order to determine who is interested in a product, the business would have to ask everyone. Changes in information access are forcing the game to evolve. Now businesses can enjoy presenting their product to those who seek them out.

Businesses try to filter Spam by using blockers but these attempts may fail, because Spam is sent out in its millions this can clog up the internet network causing computers to rum slow or even crash. E-mail E-mail is short for electronic mail. E-mail is not only for fun but plays a large part in effective communication between major businesses. Almost everybody connected on the internet has an e-mail account. Accounts are free and can be achieved by singing up with companies such as yahoo, AOL and hotmail.
The Evolution of Business Life Ask anyone under 50 in any reasonably successful organisation and they will tell you that business life is dramatically different from two or three years ago. Work is longer, harder and unending. A Management Today Ceridian survey reports that more than 76 per cent of UK managers said they wanted to spend more time doing other things; 50 per cent of men and 65 per cent of women claim that work leaves them drained of energy. This situation is not likely to improve. The underlying reasons for the changes - the increasing speed of communication and internationalisation of business - are here to stay.
In his article entitled “Sleaze Bay,” David Freedman explains why auction websites are so appealing for fraudsters: “As is true of much of the Web, the characteristics that make auction sites so appealing—anonymity, speed, low overhead, access to millions of people, lack of outside regulation, an ability to interact from a great distance—are the very same characteristics that make rip-offs so easy” (1). According to Freedman, sites such as E-bay may be subject to shill bidding; a practice against E-bay rules that is often illegal. Shill bidding involves a seller, their friends, family, or other sellers bidding to entice other bidders to join and raise their profits. This is based on the idea that “…bi... ... middle of paper ... ...ainst internet fraud. Works Cited Fleitas, Amy.

In addition after this charge Facebook had to make changes to its Statement of Rights and Responsibilities to give users better information about the usage of their names and likenesses. In conclusion the revenues and the net incomes of Facebook continue to increase with the increase of popularity of online advertising. I think in the future the number of display advertisements will fall sharply and the number of pay per click model advertisements will increase dramatically, because it is cheaper than display advertisements and it is more accurate. By using PPR the probability of hitting the bull’s eye is much higher than old fashioned advertisements.
Scholars believe that "just as radio advertising has fallen out of favor as the prime means of political communication... so too will television be forced from its central place on campaign budgets," and the internet will be the main source of campaign advertising (Morris 13). The internet is incredibly inexpensive because "anyone can start a website [and it is] difficult to command top dollar for internet advertising." (Morris 13). Once this advertising migration takes place, so will federal spending budgets due to the inexpensiveness of internet advertising. One can extrapolate this change in events, speculating that less campaign money and a lower federal budget could mean either keeping the tax rate as it is and then, in turn, spending the money in various other sectors that need funding, or a lowering of taxes.
