The Power of the Internet

The power and reach of the internet is just amazing. Everything is online. You could meet all sorts of people through online chat rooms. You can keep in touch with your long-lost friends by joining social networks. You can purchase anything online: appliances, personal stuff, house, car, medicine... name it, you can buy it online. My daughter bought our new puppy online! You can watch movies, TV shows, download games and songs online too. Of late, you can even enroll and study online. Fifteen years ago, all these were not possible. The internet brought forth a new wave of consumers and users.

Now, we don't have to go out of our homes to do all the regular things we used to do before the internet. You can pay your bill online. You can research on your homework online. You can buy groceries online. You can rant and rave online. You can post your pictures and meet new friends online. Just the other day I got an offer to play lotto online. Heck, you can even play online casino. I have tried playing bingo online with virtual bets. I was into it for more than two hours for I was winning. Too bad, the money was virtual.

This is so true, I have been shocked at how I can reach out to internet friends from around the world. Australia to England to US, etc. It is amazing.
