 In today’s society we use more internet in 1 second than we used during the entire year of 1993!

That doesn’t really come as a surprise considering the moment we walk into a new place our first question is more than likely going to be, “What’s the password for your WiFi?”. With new technology coming out faster than we can keep up, we are finding ourselves constantly on the internet. Whether we’re just scrolling through Facebook to catch up with friends and family or we’re replying to a work email. Our internet usage has increased so much, in fact, that the world’s usage in a single second surpasses that which was used by the world in the entire year of 1993.

In 1993, only around 1-3% of classrooms and 23% percent of people had access to the internet, and it was not at all commercialized, though that would change completely by 1995. Now the internet is in nearly every household and every public building. You can almost get internet on any public street. It is reported that 1.2 billion people own and/or are using some kind of smartphone regularly, not to mention those who have them, but let them stay idle most of the time.
