The internet today is a sprawling web of information that spans the virtual globe.  It was estimated that in 2023 there will be 120ZB of data online. A ZB (zettabyte) consists of a trillion gigabytes.They say if you had to download the entire content of the internet it would take 11 trillion years to download (and we complain about long download times!). In fact, to then store all that data you would need 1,000 8’x10’ rooms each filled with 450 2-terabyte storage drives. Subsequently, the internet has doubled in size, year-on-year since 2021.  So it’s huge and growing. You can be part of it with a website.

How has the internet changed?

Firstly, we used to have to plug in a cable to access the internet, now we use wireless communications like WiFi.  Secondly, we used to gather information online, now we shop, work and play online. Finally, we used to have limited access, now access is better and improving.

Access to information on the internet

You can’t discuss the internet without talking about access to the internet. Along with access to information. The internet is such a powerful tool that everyone should be able to access it.  Access to information is vital in everyone’s lives. You need information for various reasons.  For example, you need to make decisions like who to vote for and what they stand for. If there is flooding in a location, it’s useful to know before you set off. 

Named the world wide digital population, in April 2023, there were 5.18 billion internet users worldwide, which amounted to 64.6 percent of the global population.  This has drastically improved and we are well on our way to access for all. 

Caution! How to use the internet for information gathering

The internet is a powerful tool.  It is packed with information on everything. Many people gather information online and make decisions accordingly.  Therefore, it’s a good idea to think about sources and trust. Everything we read online is not fact. Contributors to the internet are you and I.  Anyone can write and publish at their will. Therefore, the best approach is to ensure quality sources of information before making any decision based on what you find online. This means ensuring your source of information is one that you trust.  It’s a good idea to be ‘Google-savy’ or ‘Bing-brushed up’.  Thus, start to see what information online is trustworthy and what is not.

Fake News

Taking the next step backwards, the advent of fake news has worsened the situation.  Fake news is where people deliberately spread false information.  This has a devastating effect and is a highly unethical practice.

Misinformation (misleading information presented as fact) and disinformation (intentionally false information) can be made to look legitimate and can easily reach thousands of users in a matter of minutes.

Keep ‘m peeled

With all that said, it is vital to use the internet with these aspects in mind in 2023. One has to look at the information you find with open eyes and not just believe everything at first sight.  

We have access to all the information we need, we must use this responsibility and ensure we dispher the fake news and the incorrect information from the truth.
