The internet is a huge development for humankind if I may say so. It's really some sort of a milestone for us to have this kind of technology that aids us in more ways than one. There's business and leisure on the net, education and shopping, and of course networking sites that help you keep in touch with loved ones, friends and relatives.
Years before we would not have imagined that this kind of "thing" would be possible. But the human brain apparently keeps evolving and continued to search for a perfect tool to do lots of things for them in a very convenient manner. Now we can do almost anything we could ever imagine on the internet.
I say, those who have thought of this concept must be real geniuses. I mean how can one be so out in the open searching on those huge search engines while having the luxury of keeping their privacy? It's really good they have thought of their mini-background checks by way of asking for a password of some sort. Otherwise lots of people would really get annoyed at a mess or a disaster that's just waiting to happen with all the unorganized stuff piling up on their net space let alone keep track of information because there would be no way to identify who-owns-what. And just think, the internet keeps expanding and branching out to cater to different needs and to various groups.
For instance, business transacted on the internet could be quite stressful in that one is not fully aware of what he is getting himself into. So aside from the client doing some background check on the company he is planning to have a transaction with, the company will, in turn, have a thorough assessment on that particular client as well. So devising a method for security on both client and service-provider is a genius thing to do. So security on the net isn't just something you have for yourself but something that you also impart with others and perhaps, this is how trust is actually gained on the internet. This is not only true for big-time transactions but with even the simplest interactions made via the internet such as the networking sites that are becoming so popular and so widely-used as of today and online shopping (which is also a better option for some in contrast with the real feat where one has to really walk and go through several aisles to pick an item. Who would, after all, not want to just sit in the comfort of their own homes while doing their shopping with just their fingers?)
So we see the internet has really become a household item (well at least for those who can afford to have internet in their homes). It is fast becoming a necessity for people of varying ages and occupations---kids, young adults, young professionals, elderly people, housewives, fathers, celebrities, just name it and they would most probably than not, have good use for the internet. And we continue to look out for its latest development like parents anticipating a milestone in their kids' lives. Who knows, we might, once again, be left in awe at one of man's greatest achievement that is the internet.
