Internet, three

The Internet originated in the United States in the 1960s. At first, only the armed forces and computer experts used it.

The World Wide Web developed during the 1990’s, making the Internet much easier to use. By the 2000’s, ordinary people could easily find information, communicate, and publish content on the Internet.

Widespread use of the Internet has reshaped society. Since the Web developed, new industries have sprung up to take advantage of the Internet’s capabilities. Other industries have struggled to adapt.
