Texting allows people to complete tasks while communicating. Computer games are a new form of entertainment only available through IT. You can use search engines to find answers to questions and help with your school work. The way we spend our leisure time has changed due to computers being widely accessible.

YouTube

  • YouTube allows people from around the world to share videos online for free and makes it easy for others to view them. Some videos get millions of views and go viral. These viral videos sometimes then go on to be featured on television, further increasing exposure. The videos also allow people’s views and opinions to be expressed easily. Any content can be rated and be flagged as inappropriate.


Facebook
