Accessing information about the topics, places, person, things, discoveries and other things is now just a click away. We have started using social networking websites, news, recipes, technical forums and other websites frequently. Only a few of us look at the physical newspapers these days.
The negligible use of physical newspapers clearly demonstrates that users love to read online rather than investing their whole morning in stretching their arms to read a lengthy news story.
You might feel that gadgets have occupied a prominent space in our lives, but still it's the Internet which keeps us informed, entertained and engaged through various means and devices. Wide access to the Internet has changed the way people cook, play, watch, listen, and enjoy.
