There is also a different approach in the way organizations conduct interviews. In the past, the interviewee had to be physically present at the company's premises for an interview to take place. Today, interviews are carried out online. One does not have to commute as it was in the past; it is just a matter of logging into the company's website and filling out some online forms.

The dissemination of information has also become easier than in olden days. Today it is common among soccer fans to watch ongoing matches from the comfort of their homes unlike in the past where one to physically be in a stadium to watch the match.
However, there some things like, basic humans, which have not changed in life before and after internet. Wars and pandemics in nations still occur like it was in the past.
