Since broadband and especially satellite internet service continues to grow and expand, there seems to be no end to the number of websites which are available. Some sites are a flash in the pan and popular for a short amount of time while others seemingly change the world overnight and remain popular and influential for years to come.
Probably the most influential website to date is Google. In fact, when the name of your website is also a verb, you know that you have it big. You don’t even have to be using the actual Google search engine to be using a Google product. For example, YouTube is a part of Google, Blogger is a Google service, and Chrome is a Google browser. More than any other site out there today, Google has changed the way we not only search for data on the internet, but watch videos and do practically anything else.
eBay is another site which has greatly influenced our world and changed the way we shop forever. If you see an item you need or want but can’t afford it, chances are that you can find the same item up for auction and a lower price on eBay. eBay also changed the way that we shop in general. We do not have to get in our car and make a trip to the local mall, but rather we can find the items we need from the comfort of our couch and have them delivered right to our home. Also, now more than ever before satellite internet services have even made these capabilities available to rural and remote areas.
YouTube is another website that has forever changed our entertainment. With YouTube, people can watch an entire Broadway show, music videos, television shows and much more. The site has also made stars out of people who have launched their music or movie careers online only to find that their video is seen by the right person. YouTube has also managed to make stars out of everyday people who simply put a video online and see it go viral.
Another site which has changed the way we shop is Amazon.com. When you need different things, you typically have to go to different stores. However, with Amazon, practically every item is under one roof. This makes it easy to find whatever you need, when you need it. In addition, with low prices and great customer service, Amazon has managed to take online shopping to a whole new level.
Wikipedia has also changed our lives forever by changing the way that we do research. Today, it is the sixth most visited website by residents of the United States and recently saw its one billionth edit. With over three million articles and new ones constantly being added, there is not much that you can’t find on this site. While you do have to make sure that the information is both current and correct, Wikipedia has made research a snap. In addition, Wikipedia appeals to internet users throughout the entire world by having information in various languages. And yes, even Wikipedia has its own page dedicated to it.
It is very apparent to see how internet in general is changing our world and satellite internet service is going to be taking that change even further by making these services more accessible to everyone.
