Mobile users- With the growth of smartphones in today’s world, the number of Internet users is greatly affected. There are more than 92+ Million active social media users that access accounts using their cell phones. This emerges the need of Moblie safety & self-awareness about the Internet scams & scandals that are very popular & can be financially harmful in today’s digital dependent world.
Kids on Social Networks- Do you know that on most of the social networking sites just allow people above 13 years of age to make an account? Yes, of course. But, according to a survey done by ASSOCHAM,about 73% of children from tier-I & II cities between age of 8 to 13 are using facebook and social networking sites. And this reveals a sad side of the Internet as in most cases, their elders/parents know about this & still they just don’t care. However, many of them repent as their kids became addict to it. And it has many other bad effects along that including CyberBullying, online threat & immoral development.
And at the time of this survey’s release, the Secretary-General of the organisation, Mr. D S Rawat said, “children are gaining access to social media sites at a younger age, which could expose them to content, people or situations that are out of their depth.” So, what did he warned us about? If we check several other surveys, we will found that the majority of CyberBullying cases are about the children from the same age group (8 to 13). This tells us about how parents are leading children to a worse road of life.
E-commerce- The Indian “online” advertising market has crossed Rs. 3000 cr. and the e-Commerce of India has crossed $24 billion (Rs 1,08,000 crores) which displays that increasing impact & influence of online market over the local markets, now the e-stores like Flipkart, Amazon, Snapdeal etc. are ruling the consumer’s world, this e-market of India was $2.5 billion in 2009, it went up to $6.3b in 2011 & to $14b in 2012 and is still increasing along with the time. And according to Google India, there were 35 million online shoppers in India in 2014 which is expected to cross 100 million by 2017.
There is no other opinion that Indians has a very & great impact on the Internet & its population, but it still need a lot of improvement & development in its several sectors including awareness & security of the Web.
