Typing in Google and searching for stuff has never been easier. Have you ever wondered how it is changing us? Read on for insights.
For instance, we want to look up the meaning of a word or find synonyms of that word. We can find the answer in the matter of a few clicks. In the old days, when the web was not there, we had to turn over the pages of a dictionary and find the word we were searching for matching the first few alphabets.
A search on Google, for this matter, certainly has made this easier. We are too reductive and lazy nowdays to consult a solid dictionary when Google is so handy.
We can also find information relevant to research in the niche we are interested in. We can find new sites and bookmark them for future references. All these information can be retrieved on Google clicks.
However, not all information on the web corresponding to a Google search can be 100% relevant and accurate. We may in that case have to purchase books and consult them. So for short runs it is okay and we can take it. But if we are writing a thesis, research paper, article or report, this is where solid books come into the picture.
Not all the searches on Google give the answer we are looking for. Sometimes we fall into a loop, continuing clicking and wasting our time when the information can be directly found in catalogs or at the library of our office.
Free forums are available on the web and a Google search on these can rightly let us discover them. I think it is good to consult the forums for the information you need badly. This may be related to programming issues or other topics for that matter. If they are popular, you get good solutions for your problems from gurus or experts in those forums.
Fiction eBooks come in handy as well on many free sites. Instead of spending money on fictions, you can just download good fiction eBooks from the sites and these sites you can find on Googling.
The advantages of a Google search have made our lives much simpler, easier and cozier by letting us access the required information at a fast pace. But for long term commitments which, I have explained before, Google searches simply waste our time without giving us the information we need and in that case, it is more reliable for us to consult a library.
