What makes the internet so convenient is the things you can get done over the internet, and with the time and effort that it saves you, why wouldn’t you use the internet?

I mean sure you could put on your best shoes and spend a whole day out looking for a job, or an apartment; that method still works too, or you could stay in bed and drink some coffee while you go through thousands of classified ads on Gumtree.

A digital revolution is changing the way we do things, and you can see this happening in all sectors of industry and trade. Institutions of higher learning have almost adopted complete online enrolment, and administration, systems, employers assess potential employees based on their online profiles, and social media accounts, and retailers, such as Amazon, have made online shopping a fashion. All these technologies, and digital adaptations, introduced with the intent of making life all the more convenient for us, as it gets a full days job done in a matter of minutes.

The convenience of the internet may come with a few draw backs – being scammers and professional con artists looking to coax you out of your money somehow over the internet – but that just stands to prove the age old saying, “not everything that glitters is gold” so it’s important to conduct your online affairs with a grain of salt, and pinch of precaution, but don’t let a few bad apples ruin the net for you.
