In January the first 1983 researchers began to work on the modern internet, whereas only from 1990 the internet got its shape with the invention of the World Wide Web by Tim Berners-Lee.
The internet was so popular right from the beginning of its launch that it globally the number of internet users increased from only 413 million in 2000 to over 3.4 billion in 2016.
The one billion barriers were crossed in 2005. And of course, it offered many possibilities for the globalized world.
But as every invention, it had also its negative sides and therefore I want to display in this post what they were and how they changed our lives.

4. Direct, personal communication
5. The delimitation between private life and work
