Buy anything from online stores

We all used to go to shopping malls and stores to buy anything we need. The concept of online shopping has prevailed recently all-around the world. This concept removes the middleman from the selling process and provides huge discounts and home delivery. It has given buying power to people because of online hyper-competitive e-stores. Also, it has enabled people all over the world to auctioning and e-commerce without investing a huge amount of money in a store, inventory, and other tangible expenses.

Change in communications framework

The most prominent change in our daily lives that have occurred after the advent of the internet is the change in means of communication. In old days, the only form to communicate was via a physical letter that would often take a week or two to reach the recipient. The internet has provided the e-mail and social messenger applications that help people send their messages and even other files within seconds. All these instant messaging, emails or Facebook updates have only become possible because of the internet.
