It is amazing to think how much Public Relations has transformed thanks to the Internet. This transformation is so amazing that it is crazy to think that there is more to come. I remember when I was younger going on the internet entailed a process of signing onto AOL. I use to fight with my younger brother about who’s turn it was to use the computer. I was obsessed with AIM and remember waiting for that lovely dial tone to conclude so I could instant message with my friends.
The internet for as long as I could remember has always connected me with my friends. Our text explains that, “the evidence suggests that technology will advance faster this decade than the last (…)” (Shieldrake, 2012, p. 231). With that being said I found an excellent article that discusses the growth of the web. It is amazing to think that the internet was once a privilege and now its necessity that everyone has access to.
This article along with our text simply proves the dominance of the web. With it massive growing capabilities it is vital in any field to know and understand the many uses of the internet. It amazes me that we are only currently in Web 2.0 and the development of Web 3.0 with make the possibilities endless. Web 3.0 will provide the platform for personal connections beyond that of Web 2.0
