Write 5 pages thesis on the topic internet is the greatest transformative force in human history. Anthony Giddens is a famous sociologist belonging to England. He is popular for giving a holistic view of modern humanity. According to him, the internet is the greatest factor which has revolutionized human history, or in other words, we can say that the internet is one of the basic drivers for the evolution of our social communities. His statement is cent percent right but if we critically review the proclamation then it can be argued that although the internet is the greatest one but still there can be many other forces which are playing their part in the transformation of human being or society. But all the social transitions are mainly caused by the involvement of technology and technology can be referred to as the internet.
‘While technology shapes the future, it is people who shape technology, and decide to what uses it can and should be put, ’Kofi Annan, United Nations Secretary-General. This means that although technology is prevailing over society and caused radical changes still it is in the hands of people that they decide the possible and advantageous use of technology. The Internet, World Wide Web, mobile cell-phones, digital television, and numerous other new electronic information and communication technologies (ICTs) are spanking new conduits for transforming the way we live, work, learn, and communicate (Dutton, 13).
The use of the internet, World Wide Web and many other digital media has been so much indulged in our lives that it has transformed all of life which may include our company, businesses, education system and even leisure time also or in other words we can say the whole society at large scale (Dutton, 1).
Although there are many other sources or factors which are part of this transition process the root cause is only the use of the internet or in other words the grasp of a human hand on the internet world. Now in this 21st century, we can contact all over the through video calls while sitting in our homes and using our personal computers. Now everything starting from the recipe of a cookbook and ending at the causes of severe disease are readily available at the spacious world of the internet. This wide world of technology covers almost every aspect of human life and thus providing ease to the social animal and thus we can say that the internet is the greatest force that causes a transition in the human history.
