Changing Trends: My View on the Internet

Posted on the 26 October 2012 by Kvlog101 @KVlog101
I was having a conversation with a few friends about how the Internet has evolved and changed over the past few years and how people can have "Internet fame" for a time and then disappear off the face off the earth, we talked for a good few hours and made a few observations about how people can just disappear from the lime light.
Looking back on the past few years the Internet goes through phases were a website or social network is popular for a time then the popularity dies off over time, if you look at how popular myspace use to be and the amount of people that use to use the service it was a good website but as more things came along such as facebook and other services myspace numbers plummeted and it was thrown to the scrap heap.
If you look at how trends come and go you see patterns and find that the community can move quickly between services, facebook has always been on the verge of losing the community as it has changed over the past year or so and there will be another website that will inevitably take over in the next few years. If you look at some of the more popular services today you can see that there has been a boom in the community and websites such as reddit and tumblr are going strong but just over the horizon there are other websites just waiting to take over.
To keep at the top of the community a website has to be updating and improving all the time and proving its worth to keep going, major changes to any service have always gone one of two ways, you will find the community embrace the changes or reject them and leave. Many youtubers today use the classic combination of YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr to engage the community but if one of these services were to go these content creators can have a hard time. But if a youtuber own a website with a registered domain you can find it easier as people have a central hub were they know they can find you.
Blogging  is always coming under fire and people say that blogging  is dying but I think that blogging  is going to a major factor in the internet for many years to come as the possibilities  that are available can be used for many uses such as photography, video, business, advice, stories, publication and many more uses.
I have established a blog that is read by nearly 70 people a day and coming close to 10000 page views through hard work, dedication, determination and constant stream of support from the community, this blog has changed my life for the better and I can say hand on heart that i would be unhappy if I had to stop. I feel my blog is a open source that i can use to express myself and to inform people of important and useful information, I find that my blog has helped me to grow as a person and to approach my life from a better way by being more open minded and to see a situation in a clearer way rather than just viewing it all in a black and white fashion and being bias towards a train of thought.
The internet is a place for people to talk and communicate and to make friends, it is a place to learn new things and to find out more about life outside you front door or even your own country, the internet gives us freedom to travel the world and experience different cultures all from an arm chair or sofa in you your own living room.
The internet is a gift of life to everyone it is a tool that can be used to enhance life and to encourage learning.
As the internet evolves it takes us on a journey and we learn a whole lot about our own life and about others around us, I consider the internet to be the best resource for learning and communication with people you would never have normally met, the fact you can talk to relatives and friends on the other side of the world like they are in the same room as you just goes to show the good qualities of the internet.
To conclude this post I leave you with a thought:
As the internet evolves we move along with it going on to the next great products and services and we grow as people who are more informed than many of the past generations that have come before us.
Thanks for reading and supporting my blog.
