When the World Wide Web (WWW) was introduced in March 1989 by Tim Berners-Lee as a way for scientists around the world to share information his proposal was rejected. Berners-Lee, a British scientist for CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, went back to the drawing board. By December 1990, the first website and server went live at CERN. In April 1993, the WWW was released to the general public and few could imagine the change it would have on how we communicate.

Since the introduction of home computers followed by the Internet and Smartphones, technology has influenced our daily lives from how we learn and play to how we communicate and make purchases. Households with Internet use jumped from 18 percent in 1997 to nearly 75 percent in 2012, according to the United States Census Bureau. Smartphones certainly account for some of that increase since 45 percent of households in 2012 were using them.

Technology has made many things easier, faster and more efficient. On the flip side, as use increases so does the potential for fraud and identity theft.
