The internet has increasingly become more and more important for people managing both their private and business lives. The number of apps and other programmes available has enabled people to become much more efficient with their time, or at least has given them the opportunity to be more efficient. Driving Growth, a Dubai-based consultancy, have a wealth of experience in helping their clients utilise the UAE Web Development to improve their business performance.
As said above, people now have a multitude of apps and programmes available to them to help them manage their lives. So, what are the 5 most common things people use the internet for?
The single most common use for the internet is for e-mail. With the availability of a wide range of messaging service apps as well as standard e-mail programmes, the possibility to communicate with people wherever and whenever you wish is open. It’s faster, more reliable and more convenient than writing a letter, or even making a phone call, making it an even more popular personal and business tool.
Another extremely popular use for the internet is to get information. With an almost countless number of websites and webpages available, pretty much anything and everything you want to know can be found in just a few clicks and seconds. The 1 billion websites landmark was passed as far back as 2014, making the internet a truly amazing source of information.
Online shopping is big business, and threatens to overtake traditional shopping in the not too distant future. With the growth of sites such as Amazon and Alibaba, the range of goods available online is beyond compare. And the prices tend to be cheaper than in traditional shops as well.
Social networking is another of the extremely popular uses for the internet. With about 1/3 of the global population predicted to be using one or other social media platform by 2020, it’s easy to see why people really can connect with social network without having to leave the comfort of their own homes.
The internet is becoming almost as popular as TV for entertainment options, and probably more so for the younger generations. The internet offers films, music, games, news, tv shows and an ever-increasing number of online only material to make it a real entertainment hub.
Of course, the above is just a small selection of the vast numbers of things the internet can be used for, both for personal or business reasons.
