Technology comes in all shapes and sizes, especially the internet. With the internet in present day; it is super easy to access all the information you need. There are many ways in which the internet has evolved overtime, some being the amount of information accessible, the rate at which people consume the internet, and the different ways information can be found. Back when the internet was newer, it was a challenge to find the information you were looking for. As of recent, it has been getting easier to consume or access what you’re looking for and the certain ways you are doing it.
The amount of information that is accessible on the internet is practically endless as of today. But 15 years ago it was not even close to being like that. Now you can access anything from Martin Luther King Jr. birthday to knowing the map of pre WW1. “As of September 2014, there were 1 billion websites on the Internet, a number that fluctuates by the minute as sites go defunct and others are born.” (Pappas)
The Production of the Internet by 2020.
The beauty of technology evolving is everything around it is as well. The way technology is consumed now is way different from 15 years ago. If you ask me that is a big increase of the amount of information that could be accessed on the internet. The amount of people who uses the internet also shows an increase.
There’re 7 billion people who live on earth. Some are young and some are old. “The number of Internet users has increased from 738 million in 2000 to 3.2 billion in 2015” (Davidson). The increase of internet users from the 90s to today is due to the fact that it has been advertised very well and showed promise and innovation. The more the internet is used the more technologically advanced we become.
The amount of Internet users around the world.
The rapid increase in this chart is from the late 90s to 2009. That is about 10 years and it increased somewhere between 1.25 billion- 1.5 billion users. That means the products that produces internet more easily has been created and are becoming frequently used.
The ways that technology and information can be accessed through the internet has evolved from the early 2000s. Which resulted in more internet users. Technology that’s been created to help access information on the internet are smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktops. These are ways that information can be accessed with newer technology. An even bigger impact with technology and the internet is social media.
Types of Technology that Social Media can be accessed on.

Many different types of social media are Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, and many more. “We are all aware that social media has had a tremendous impact on our culture, in business, on the world-at-large. Social media websites are some of the most popular haunts on the Internet. They have revolutionized the way people communicate and socialize on the Web.” (Ta) Social media has such a big impact on communicate and ways information is founded by mass amounts of people. Technology is a major key in our society.
Technology is helping innovate the future of society. Especially the internet. The internet has been the most used thing of the century. With the impact of social media in the past decade it has made a great way to communicate amongst ourselves in society. It’s great for keeping in touch with your community. That’s how the internet has been such a great thing because of the information accessible, how many people use it, and the different ways people can use it.
