Title: The Volatile Online World

Snippet: It’s been said that the Internet brings people together. Wherever you are in the world, if you have a device to get online and a connection, you can meet individuals with the same capability. This enables people who enjoy similar activities, such as genealogy, to come together; it also bridges the gap between distant relatives you never knew existed.

On the surface, the Internet is the most wonderful thing since the creation of the campfire. It brings together millions of people every day. People chat, meet new friends and family members and share information and photographs with others on the other side of the world as if they were on the other side of the room.

. . . To read more, pick up one of the above noted newspapers.
