what is the internet
What Is the Internet?
  • The internet is simply thousands of computers all connected together in one big, world-wide network. Our computers at home are linked to this network by an internet service provider – a company that allows us to dial into its own computers, usually via our telephone lines.
Like the library, the internet contains information on almost any topic you can imagine in many formats, including books, articles, videos, and music recordings.
  • Like the newspaper, the internet can give you new information every day, including world news, business, sports, travel, entertainment, and ads.
e mail
  • Email is sent from computer to computer over the internet
  • Like the U.S. Postal service, the internet allows anyone who knows your internet address to send you a letter. (It's called electronic mail, or e-mail for short)
  • Newsgroups are online discussion groups where messages relating to specific subjects can be posted. People who sign up to the newsgroup can read the messages and post a response.
  • Like the telephone, the internet allows you to "chat" with other people by participating in online discussion groups.
  • Real time chat is very popular with kids, and some web sites feature chat rooms, which are areas users can enter using a nickname and have live text conversations with each other. (Instant messaging).
