Scope of Work On the Internet and Role of Social Media
Before we go on to preview the total scope of Work From Internet, commonly known as Work From Home or Home Business Opportunities, let us take a quick review of the scope of Work on Internet and how Social Media relates to its working and growth.
We all know that as mentioned in the Wikipedia - "The Internet is a global system of interconnected computer networks that use the standard Internet Protocol Suite (TCP/IP) to link several billion devices worldwide. It is an international network of networks that consists of millions of private, public, academic, business, and government packet switched networks, linked by a broad array of electronic, wireless, and optical networking technologies. The Internet carries an extensive range of information resources and services, such as the inter-linked hypertext documents and applications of the World Wide Web (WWW), the infrastructure to support email, and peer-to-peer networks for file sharing and telephony."
The Origins of The Internet go back to the early 1960's while modern Internet as it would so be called today came to the fore after the 1980's. As of June 2012, more than 2.4 billion people—over a third of the world's human population—have used the services of the Internet; approximately 100 times more people than were using it in 1995.
Before I proceed further let me elaborate on a portmanteau* - "Netizen" - a Term which I will be commonly referring to in my Posts.
The term Netizen is a portmanteau* of the English words Internet and citizen. It is defined as an entity or person actively involved in online communities and a user of the Internet, especially an avid one.[The term can also imply an interest in improving the Internet, especially in regard to open access and free speech.Netizens are also commonly referred to as cybercitizens, which has the same meaning.
* (A portmanteau (//, //; plural portmanteaux or portmanteaus) or portmanteau word is a combination of two (or more) words or morphemes, and their definitions, into one new word.)
Well we took this only as a small Introduction to The Internet as a whole, while we will now look at the scope of work that this Internet and the World Wide Web (WWW) has created for the Netizens and even the common man today, both as a means of communication and also a genuine and legitimate source of Income, and Business.
Growth of the Internet then lead to what we commonly call as the Social Media Platforms. Social Media is the social interaction among people in which they create, share or exchange information and ideas in virtual communities and networks. This further led to the Social Network or Social Media Networks. A social network is a social structure made up of a set of social actors (such as individuals or organizations) and a set of the dyadic (of or consisting of a dyad; being a group of two) ties between these actors. All these are together clubbed in as what we commonly refer to as Social Media Technologies.
Social Media Technologies take on many different forms including magazines, Internet forums, weblogs, social blogs, micro-blogging, wikis, social networks, pod casts, photographs or pictures, video, rating and social bookmarking. Technologies include blogging, picture-sharing, vlogs, wall-posting, music-sharing, crowd sourcing and voice over IP, to name a few. Social network aggregation can integrate many of the platforms in use.
The Outcome of all this was a huge plethora of opportunities made available to the Netizens. It is this base of opportunities that led to the growth of hundreds and thousands of Work Opportunities that were made available to the General Public as well as Businessmen, apart from the Netizens and Cyber Citizens who most often use them.
In the posts that follow we will deal with each of them at length, review and analyze in depth further topics like magazines, Internet forums, weblogs, social blogs, micro-blogging, wikis, social networks, pod casts, photographs or pictures, video, rating and social bookmarking and much more. As each of them is inter-related and are either supplementary or complimentary to one another they will need to be reviewed and understood as individual entities and subjects in my upcoming posts.
My next post will be a very basic understanding of the existing scope of Internet Based Work From Home Opportunities and we will then later go on to taking up those topics at length as Individual Topics of my Posts. The Topic is so wide and huge that I request my fellow Netizens to read, study and understand the scope and potential of each opportunity on its merit and how they could personally relate to it.
As highlighted in the Topic or Subject of this Post itself we have only seen the very thread bare details of the Scope of Internet and we will in my upcoming posts see how Social Media has Played and extensive role in promoting and sharing this information and potential opportunities to us.
Keep a watch for my next post which deals with "Introduction to Work From Home on the Internet" a basic preview of the scope of Work From Home Opportunities on the Internet.
