The reason I decided to share this information with you is because it is useful for anyone who wishes to understand the media. These facts are not yet taught in school or university, but will inevitably expand your knowledge for the World Wide Web. This link provides a good theoretical explanation on the Hidden Internet.
Did you know that Google provides access to less than one percent of the entire data on the web? So where is the rest of the data hiding? In the Deep Web. The deep web accounts for all of the unindexed data online – most often sensitive data of governments, banks, universities, corporations, and user accounts. This data is thousands of times larger than the Surface web – the content we access on daily basis. The deep web can be accessed only by software such as Tor that enables anonymity. It is used by journalists, politicians, whistleblowers, and normal people for private communication and data protection. It is often mistaken for the Dark Web, which is a part of the deep web, and is mainly a black market for illegal goods and services. Have you heard of recent news stories concerning the Deep/Dark Web?
