Palis, Courteney. “How Essential is the Internet to the US?” Huffington Post. Thehuffingtonpost.com, inc. Mar. 20, 2012. Apr. 6, 2014. <http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/03/20/internet-economy-infographic_n_1363592.html>
This article explains the importance of the internet. It includes infographics, which are probably the most vital information. While it’s not very lengthy, this article is good because it provides links to information expanding on certain facts such as the amount of people that use the internet, the amount of things bought online, etc. The infographics also compare the internet to other industries with regard to the economy and spending money. This is an important article because it establishes the importance of the internet and the online world. It shows that people are moving to the internet for everything. And while the popularity of the internet was already obvious, there are now facts to use. This will set the groundwork in my paper for why any business would benefit from having an online presence and why they should have a blog.
