The Most Common Uses of the Cloud
In today’s society, the Internet has become an integral part of everyday life. Social media has become the new way to connect with people both locally and internationally, allowing us to share stories and experiences with different people on a regular basis. However, with all of this information and data being shared, it becomes increasingly important for there to be a space where this information can be safely and securely. That’s where the cloud comes in.
The cloud, to put it simply, is a way to store data on the Internet rather than on your hard drive. It allows you to access your files and information from any computer, whenever you need to access them. This is also where data from social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter are stored, which is why the content on your Facebook page remains the same no matter where you access it. The cloud creates a space where people can easily and safely store pictures, videos, articles, and moments that your friends and family can view from everywhere, streamlining your online social life.
