The internet has become a fundamental element of everyday life, so much so that it is hard to remember life without it. How did you meet up with friends before you had cellphones and texting connected on a 4G or WiFi network? Where did you get your information before there was Wikipedia and Google? How did you stay in touch with your friends and family that lived so far away?
Obviously there are legitimate answers to those questions -- but what we're saying here is that the internet has made things much easier, to the point that it is impossible to separate the internet from the real world.
