I find it amazing that we can now connect to people all around the world. Facebook is a global platform and I use it to connect with family across seas.
However the thing I find most interesting about the internet is the fact we would feel lost or possibly bored if we were not connected to it. When the Wi-Fi goes down or we get a poor signal, it makes us very frustrated and some may use the phrase ‘we are in the 21st century, why do I have no signal’ – or something along those lines.
An online source [http://www.internetworldstats.com/stats.htm, accessed Tuesday 2nd Feb 2015] say that as of November 2015, Asia are the top internet users.
This surprised me as Europe’s percentage is lower than I thought and much lower than Asia’s percentage.
I find it astonishing that not even Asia at the top has a percentage of more than 50%. The main priority focus of the 21st century should be to ensure everyone in the world can have internet access and not to try and improve the current internet just yet.
The internet is ‘free’ to some extent, so everyone should be allowed to access it and most importantly, it can enhance learning and connect people, which is very important.
