When discussing life changing impacts of the internet there are 5 in particular that come to mind! Although this technology was originally developed to deliver information of all sorts right to your computer it has evolved into much more! In fact this platform offers the opportunity for people to stay in touch by opening channels of communication on a global basis! In addition business entrepreneurs have also flocked to the internet due to costs and the incredible scope of its reach!

Let's have a quick look at 5 ways this life changing technology has made an impact keeping in mind the magnitude of its influence goes much further!

Social Media

The use and popularity of social media today gives the impression that this was the primary intended function the internet was suppose to serve! With so many different social sites available and new ones opening up all the time, people have several channels of communication they can choose from to stay in touch! In fact these same channels are also extensively used for delivering late breaking news as well as updates on many current events!

Information Availability

As already mentioned previously, the internet was originally intended to deliver information to users and BOY does it ever! Not only can users search for and find answers to nagging questions but they can also get information on a wide array of topics ranging from consumer goods to any changes in local or federal laws! This is much like having your own genie in a bottle that delivers upon any (reasonable) request, and almost immediately!


Although social media use has really opened up channels of communication for just about anybody who works or plays online, email can not be forgotten! In fact using email is the preferred way to send messages or information that is private and/or confidential and is used extensively by many businesses! This method is also the first choice for individuals to pass messages back and forth that are NOT intended for public viewing!

Business Platform

Many aspiring business entrepreneurs had their prayers answered once the internet went live! No where can you find a platform that costs so little to use yet has such a tremendous exposure! Businesses go online to not only market their goods and services but to also deliver information about what they have to offer! With consumers today this is extremely important since people want and need as much information as they can get in order to make buying decisions!


Schools at all levels have learned to embrace and make use of internet technologies to enhance the learning experience of their students! Being able to deliver information to students on any subject from anywhere has changed many educational systems for the good and forever! Now students have literally 24-7 access to virtual classrooms and they don't even have to leave the confines of their own home! This helps keep costs more manageable for schools as well as allowing for students to never miss much time in the 'classroom' due to illness or logistics!

There are many more life altering impacts of the internet than the 5 discussed above and it still continues to evolve! Just the ability for it to deliver information of any sort right to your personal computer is impressive enough but it also offers several channels of communication for users as well! Of course it can NOT be overlooked how quickly business entrepreneurs as well as large organizations have successfully adapted to this environment! All these benefits discussed above have dramatically altered the lives of those who go online and it seems there is still more room for future developments! In the end it's amazing to see how such technology originally intended to simply deliver information to users has grown in both purpose and use, but then again that's technology for you!
