Internet has become such an integral part of modern day society that most of our day to day activities depend upon the internet.
Q1.Do you use much during the day?
Ans.Yes, a lot of my day to day activities revolve around the use of internet. I majorly use internet for social media and to read news online. As internet has made banking services so convenient and its available 24*7, I use it to check my balance and keep a record of my transactions. For work related purposes I tend to use a lot of email and I have recently started writing content as a freelancer for a social media site. Writing content involves huge amount of research and access to loads of material which is only available on the net hence, I can say my life revolves around the internet nowadays.
Q2.What are some of the advantages of the internet?
Ans.The internet offers goods of advantages to the end user. There is an endless list that I can discuss here but my main focus will be on online shopping. Internet has changed the way we buy products. Global brands competing against each other selling millions of products over the internet has made it very convenient and beneficial for the consumer. With the click of a button goods are delivered to your doorstep and before buying the product one can read the reviews on the product left by various shoppers. Return policy is also very easy and it has also uplifted the postal services in the country as millions of products are shipped throughout the country using different courier and postal services.
Q3.Do people in your country use the internet a lot?
Ans.India is one of the largest users of internet in the world. With a massive population of 1.3 billion people and huge connectivity it has certainly changed the way we behave as a country. Smart phones are very cheap and internet tariffs cost second to none due to the ever growing competition in the telecommunication sector. Social media sites such as Facebook, Instagram, twitter etc are very popular among the young generation in the country. India has the largest number of active Facebook users in the world and global internet giants are looking at it as the next big destination to expand their business. Whatsapp (an end to end encrypted messaging application) is also very popular as it does not cost anything to send messages or to make calls through this app. This app uses data rather than using talk time or message allowance provided by your network provider.
Q4.Do you do any shopping on the internet?
Ans.Yes certainly, I shop for most of my stuff online. Busy schedule and massive work load has made it very difficult for me to step out and buy products that I need for my daily needs. Toiletries, clothes, electrical devices and groceries are products that I generally buy from the internet on regular basis. Recently I came across a website that sells fresh organic fruits and vegetables and offers next day delivery so I will be trying their services in the near future as I believe in sustained farming and organic farming promotes a healthy lifestyle.
Q5.What type of internet services do you use at your office?
Ans.Most of the work at my office is related to writing mails and marketing. We have various clients across the world and we have to communicate with them in their own language. Google translate and other translation websites are used very often to make contact with these clients and develop a professional business relationship. Financial transactions and card payments are also processed through internet as the client base is international. We have to process a wide range of electronic payments and use the banking facilities on a daily basis.
