We always had the perspective that internet is just social media and google. As a 90s almost millennial generation, living in a time where technology is been having a continued growth. The web is worldwide, this means in were connected with people that can be from; United States, Europe and more.
Also many people think that the Web is the same as the Internet, and use these terms interchangeably. However, the term Internet actually refers to the global network. So, although the Web does make up a large portion of the Internet, but they are not one and same.
For a student of journalism knowing more of the topic for a future is great because it can be used as an equipment for my career. The web is an way to find all the information I need in a blink of an eye. Nevertheless, if it the web didnt exist in my life, i wouldnt be completly lost, but it would only be more dificult to find the information, contact people from other countries and more.
