1. Introduction Thanks to the advent of and development of computers, cell phones, and especially the Internet in our day-to-day life, the ways people communicate have grotesquely changed, initiating a new era for human beings. According to the figures of Internet World Stats , in late 2012, there were over two-thousand millions people around the world connecting to the internet, and this number of internet users currently occupies 34,3% of the world population. The Internet is not only an imperative technology, but it also has become the main medium of communication among people, and has already impacted the ways people communicate with each other. Conversation is thus no longer exclusively a face to face act or a simple chat over the phone.
The limitation of old communication tools has made the use of internet for communication is wider all over the world . This piece of writing will try to evaluate if this kind of communication the best for people and look at how it has changed the way we communication . One of the internet benefit is Emails and messages. It is allowed people from different places of the world to communicate easily without any limitation for different purpose . For example, information, data and photos are sent a cross the world in seconds using Emails and messages over the internet networks rather than using conventional communication ways like fax and post office .
Internet is a global system of interconnected computer networks that use Internet Protocol (IP) to serve several billion users worldwide. Since the birth of this great invention, Internet has changed the way people communicate, shop, and learn by providing ease of access. One of the greatest benefits that Internet has provided is easy communication. Before the beginning of internet, we had different methods of communicating over long distance. People in the past used to write letters and then came the era of telegrams.
Computerization has changed everyone’s life in ways that were never before possible. The global network of interconnected computers allows people to send electronic mail messages across the world in the blink of an eye and stay updated on world events as they happen; the world has become a much smaller place as a result of this global communication and exchange of ideas. There have also become thousands of online “communities” of people who share common interests through message boards, chat rooms, and electronic mailing lists (Wilmott 106). Right now, the Internet is the ultimate demonstration of the first amendment: free speech. A place where people can speak their mind without being punished for what they say or how they choose to say it.
The internet is aninternational web of interconnected networks--in essence, anetwork of networks; these consist of government, education, and business networks. Software on these networks between the source and destination networks "read" the addresses on packets and forward them toward their destinations. E-mail is a very fast and efficient way of sending information to any internet location. Once an e-mail is sent, it arrives at its destination almost instantly. This provides people with a way to communicate with people anywhere in the world quickly without the costs of other forms of communicating such as telephone calls or postage for letters.
As I already have mentioned it is very user friendly. Napster works because the more users it attracts the more files other people can download. It as soon as you run napster your machine becomes a server to the internet with a shared folder able to be access by anyone else using napsters software. Napsters software then allows you to use a keyword based search to find files that you like and goes through the internet to find which other servers have files associated with your keyword. This type of file sharing is called Peer-to-Peer (P2P) file sharing.
The Internet: Today's Communication Revolution In the past decade, the Internet has emerged as the newest of communication media. It gives users quick access to information from around the world. People can chat with friends, read up to the minute news, and find samples of other media, such as music, movies, and books. However, the Internet required the construction of a considerable foundation before it became the information clearinghouse that is today. It is difficult to pick a particular event in history and say “It all began with...” because of the numerous technologies that the Internet descends from.
Effect of Computers and the Internet on Society Before we know it, technology is going to pass us by. With the invention of the computer and the Internet, the possibilities are endless. Society is changing by leaps and bounds, with no chance of a stopping point in the near future. All this change is dealing with computers and the effects that it will have on the way we live tomorrow. The Internet affects us in every way, most importantly with our social lives, our jobs, and our entertainment.
Most of message was sent in a text and image form, but some audio files also can be sent but with limited of file size. This application also is able to send the same message to several users at once. This is called broadcasting. The e-mail application using the standard protocol for sending emails namely Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). While, the most commonly used protocol for e-mail receiving is Post Office Protocol v3 (POP3) and Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP).
The project was later transferred to the National Science Foundation (NSF) and became known as the “Internet”. In the beginning it was used by university scholars and researchers, then fueled by technological advancement of computer and communication it became World Wide Web (WWW). In the early days of WWW it was primarily used by both public and private organization to access information about the businesses products, services, and news. Due to massive increase in traffic on WWW, organization of all types and sizes worldwide began establishing their presence by having their own Web... ... middle of paper ... ...e.
