A Networked Society: Promises and Paradoxes

Hello, everyone
How are you doing so far?
Halloween’s day  is coming soon. Have you guys decide yet who’d you like to be?
I think I might be a witch. lol

Anyway, let’s start with our topic this week which is a networked society: promises and paradoxes. This topic is little hard for me to understand the whole thing, so I guess some people might get the same problem as me at somepoint.

First, I would like to explain what a networked society, promises, and paradoxes mean

A networked society: In the Networked Society, Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) have taken us to a critical stage – an inflection point – enabling transformative and disruptive change across industries and society, catalyzing an entirely new economic model.

Promise: to tell someone that you will certainly do something

Paradoxes: a statement or proposition that seems self-contradictory or absurd but in reality expresses a possible truth.

Second , this topic is related to the surface (normal search engine), deep web, and dark web.

This little explains what is it all about.

According to BrightPlanet that
What is the surface web?

The Surface Web is anything that can be indexed by a typical search engine like Google, Bing or Yahoo.

What is the deep web?

The Deep Web is anything that a search engine can’t find.

What is the dark web?

The Dark Web then is classified as a small portion of the Deep Web that has been intentionally hidden and is inaccessible through standard web browsers.
(Brightplanet, 2014)

Tha last thing is my thought about deep web, dark web.

For me, after I research all information about the topic what I got is Dark Web is a small portion of the Deep Web and also it’s little scary to jump into deep web and dark web because most of the illegal people are using those place to selling a drug, or doing some kind of bad things. Most of the hacker is using a deep and dark web to hack some people information or get what they need and escape really easily because they can use a fake IP address to get into anywhere they want without getting caught.

This is the link to explain what is TOR

They are the browser or search engine which not appear in normal social network world call TOR. This program allows people who use hide their IP address which kind of protect those users from getting steal personal data, but in the another case, people also can hack them too if that person is using torrent to download something online.

  2. I have seen quite a few interesting videos on the “Deep Web” wherein things can happen unknown to the rest of the world. I think these stories are mostly overblown, as the deep web is mostly made up of random information (i.e. boring stuff like applications that have never been looked at and old myspace accounts). Watch this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L7JQ6tr_izE but be warned it’s scary! Happy Halloween!

  4. Freedom of the internet is very important and no one should limit it no matter what. and no one should have to worry about being bullied on the internet. But at the same token, everyone has became involved with this internet and it has grown to be a bigger and more interesting way of seeing things and communicating things.
