However young passionate students have been neglecting this platform for ideas. These days the only thing they are using the internet for is:
Here are some ways to take full advantage of the services the internet has to offer.
Social networking sites like twitter are a great way to meet people with mutual interests. Flickr is a great way to share your photos with the world. Blogs are a wonderful way to get your work out there and your voice heard. A great way to keep track of them is from RSS feed readers like Google reader. There are also many communities out there, like fashion communities, and even the most obscure subjects, like Cannabis, which is illegal has its own community, go figure!
The internet is not just for google, facebook and email, the services offered can add to your database of knowledge, increase your social circle and overall add to the quality of your life. Take full advantage of it.
