IS THE INTERNET A PLAYGROUND FOR THE NEW REVOLUTION?

A playground is where kids have the freedom to let go and just express themselves through the games they play, or the conversations they carry out amongst each other. It is  a place where they are able to develop their social skills. Also you could argue that the playground creates some form of community, as it brings the kids together. Does this not reflect to how the internet is in today’s society?

One thing that may seem surprising, is that  the first most known form of social media was in 1997 called Six Degrees, where people were able to upload a profile and make friends with other users. As time went on, the world of social media began to evolve and in the 20th century the high percentage of people across the world using social media began to be part of the new revolution.

This new system of communication has given individuals more power. As social media such as Facebook and twitter have given people the freedom to voice their opinion. It also creates a sense of community. Where with Facebook you can create groups that people are free to join, to support specific campaigns. This  leads to the question on whether new revolution has loss the control of society, due to the freedom the internet gives us?
