The internet and its usages are spreading like wildfire all around the globe currently. Everything and everyone is benefiting from the advantages that the internet brings to their doorstep. Not just large corporations and small scale businesses but also individuals profit from the use of the internet.
A lot of people knows how to navigate the internet but there are still those who find it difficult to grasp. This isusually the older generation who have not grown up with an electronic gadget in their hands. So there is nothing to be ashamed about. Everything is knowledge and knowledge could be taught and learnt. This article is for those kinds of people.
The internet is not some magic gizmo. It could be understood if it is simply put. The internet is simply a network connecting thousands and millions of computers. It enables people to share information, pictures and data. It is a network of networks and it links businesses, individuals, governments, educational institutions etc. There are no wires and cables attached and the whole system is a wireless connection connecting countries and continents. Emails, video conferencing, social media networking, watching movies and listening to music online, reading digital newspapers, finding educational sources and materials etc. are some of the services the internet offers.
To start you must contact an Internet service provider/ institution to set up an internet connection in your house. The team will teach you how to operate the hardware and the passwords attached to your wifi etc.
So once the equipment is setup and ready to use this is how you use it;
Let’s think you want to buy some blinds for your windows and wants to find out how you can buy it and where. You go to the windows explorer (This depends on the type of web browser installed in your computer such as Firefox or chrome) and double click it. Then a search engine (a page with a blank tab on it to type what you want in it) will appear and all you have to do is type what you want on the blank tab. The most frequently used search engine currently is ‘google’.
If you are a resident of central coast, just type ‘blinds central coast’ and the search engine will automatically list down the websites that offers blinds for sale online and in the area specified. You just have to go through them and click on it. Then the website will be opened and you can read whether all you require is there and find their location. It also allows you the option of home delivery and online purchasing so that is an added convenience.
To avoid other types of localities appearing on your search list thereby making it long and complicatedtry to be very specific. (For an example type Window blinds Newcastle). You must chose the sites with care and select only places where there is high consumer satisfaction.
However the merits of the internet helps us we must keep in mind that there are some disadvantages in using it as well. But sometimes the pros outweigh the cons and we, through sheer desperation to ensure that our daily functions take place smoothly have to rely on it.
