It is a solid proof of man’s inquisitive nature and innovative talent.
It is made up of networks of official and educational institutions, commercial and social organizations and governments and private agencies.
Historically, the US Defence Department in 1969 started the use of a computer network to help its workers to exchange their ideas and messages on it.
As computer users know, the linking of computers is called “networking.” The American use of the computer network for defense purposes developed into the Internet the world over.
The Internet, now, is “a collection of individual networks connected by telephone lines.” The user of a computer network can gain information from or exchange messages with any other network anywhere at all times.
The different websites that run into millions offer information in the sciences, arts, religions, education, commerce, industry, agriculture, governments, law and almost every topic or subject under the sun.
The use of the Internet, thus, promotes the communication of all sorts of information and knowledge in different societies and countries.
It offers everything to everyone every time and everywhere around the globe.
A person can communicate, interact, talk and debate with anyone anywhere in the world.
