The public internet came into existence in the 1990's but its development began before that and the first internet consisted of the computers from various academic organisations linked together.
Since its development the Internet has vastly changed the way we communicate and the way in which we socialise. Phone calls or even video calls could be made to anyone around the globe, negating the need for some business travel and allowing people to more easily communicate with friends or loved ones hundreds of miles away.
Whereas before the news on the radio, newspaper or television or by word of mouth were the only connections to events round the world the Internet allowed anyone to post information or pictures of events happening. Suddenly people could find out what was happening anywhere in the world from the comfort of their own home and from various different viewpoints. With the invention of mobile phones with cameras this only became more prevalent and people could also view the information wherever they were.
