The internet is an incredible tool that’s changed the way society interacts. Nowadays, most people form communities online through social media channels and gaming. Face-to-face interactions aren’t obsolete; they just have to contend with a new vehicle.
As is always the case with the internet, and technology in general, there are vast differences from one year to the next. As a result, what you can do in 2022 isn’t the same as what you could do in 2021. These are four examples you might want to try in the New Year.
Upgrade Your Security Protocols
Okay, okay, okay, so beginning with a warning isn’t nice. However, it’s naive to assume that hackers won’t target your computer or mobile device. If it lacks security features, they will gain access. To put it into perspective, there were 1.5 billion attacks on IoT devices last year.
Thankfully, the tools at your disposal are much more advanced today than they have ever been. And the software is improving year on year, such as AI-powered cybersecurity mechanisms. If that sounds like too much hassle, you should download the latest version of your favorite antivirus software and upgrade your server to patch holes. Once you’ve gotten that out of the way, you can surf the web in peace.
Consoles are no longer the kings of the gaming world. Applications, such as web apps and mobile apps, have taken over, as have mobile devices. For instance, massive multiplayer role-playing games are available via the App Store or Google Play. That means you can play League of Legends or World of Warcraft remotely.
The casino industry is another booming gaming sector due to the popularity of smartphones and tablets. With a click of a button, it’s easy to play online casino libraries that include everything from slots, poker and blackjack to baccarat and craps. There are live versions too, adding to the authenticity.
Learn a Language
Traveling hasn’t been on the cards for a while. Still, wouldn’t it be amazing if you can converse with locals in their mother tongue the next time you go abroad? Good news - you can! DuoLingo has been around for ages. By downloading it to your device, it’s possible to learn vocab words and phrases without formal lessons.
Memrise is another remote language learning application that’s becoming popular because of its novel approach. Rather than concentrating solely on grammar and syntax, Memrise includes videos of gestures and the types of environments where you’re likely to have conversations. It’s a game-changer.
Delete Unnecessary Accounts
The internet has been around for years, which means you’ve built up a list of things you like to do when you open a browser. 2022 is the year of decluttering the things you pay for without using them. This might hurt you to hear, but you don’t need Netflix if you only watch it once a month.
At the same time, you probably don’t need Disney+ or Amazon Prime Video if you have the others. It’s a waste of resources, and when times are a little tough, saving money quickly is one of the most fun hobbies on the internet. Thank us later!
Once you’re safe to browse, you can do what you want when you want. That’s the best thing about the World Wide Web.
