We are now in the 21st century and have all types of new technologies. I’m not just talking about the typewriter, anymore. These days we have the Internet where we can engage in social media sites, explore informational web sites, read or watch the news, listen to music, and stream videos on YouTube. Not only do we have the typical computer anymore, but also iPads, touch screen computers, smart phones, and a lot of other new and exciting gadgets.
Along with the new technology, we also have been introduced to a whole new language. For example, “Google”, can be a noun because it is a thing; a search engine. As most of us know, it is also a verb. We now “Google” a statement, word, or anything else interesting to us that we do not know or wish to learn more about
Like “Google” or “googling”, we have also been introduced to “blogs”, “blogging”, “bloggers”, and so on. What exactly is a blog you may ask? A blog or a blogger is a place were an individual or a group of individuals can write about his or her thoughts, interests, opinions, experiences, etc. (dictionary.com). Therefore, “blogging” is the actual writing part.
There is a new world of knowledge that can be explored via the Internet. Whether you know how to utilize it is the key. To be successful in the future, I’d recommend that everyone becomes computer literate. Can you keep up?!
