How Google, Facebook, Wiki and others have fueled the internet?


The Web 2.0 sites or information-sharing internet applications have driven people to make their private data public. A close look of –
Wikipedia or Open Source: People take voluntary participation by offering their knowledge for free.
Google: It is still unrivalled algorithm
Facebook: It’s an interesting information-sharing application that has a space for relationships and recognition

The information made available to public is called as ‘default to public’. There are few questions that would crunch us are – Which part of information is used for advertising purposes? Do we disclose this information for free?

This sites are continued to work because of willing participants. People with digital natives since birth will be unable to relate to life before internet and this will be treated normal in few years from now. Interestingly many will not be able to tell if they met the online acquaintance offline, as the difference between online and offline is seen irrelevant. Today the most interesting people are those that we can’t find on Google, Facebook and Wiki.

What is your opinion?

HE will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples in his faithfulness. Psalm 96

  1. super article..specially “Today the most interesting people are those that we can’t find on Google, Facebook and Wiki.”
    I luved this kind of life but unfortunately can’t.I think we all know what you mentioned in last line but we can get away from this internet world..

    1. Indeed a nice one : “Today the most interesting people are those that we can’t find on Google, Facebook and wiki.”

      But don’t you think answer lies between desire and choice.
      I do have a facebook/google/Microsoft account and I am connected with everyone. My parents don’t have facebook/google/Microsoft account, and still they are connected with everyone out there.

      I don’t have answer to this question, how is this possible???

      1. If you read it as an individual sentence there is no need to such arguments. The article speaks how the internet has fueled and brought changes in life. It is like if you say, “I don’t use mobile phone in the generation, it would surprise many.” The most suggestion you would hear is have a mobile phone to connect you. This trend will change, your children will be surprised in case you are not in social network.
