This has had a huge impact on Digital Commerce. It is important because it is the new way where people with Digital Access can be able to shop online from wherever they want.
    5. 5. Digital Communication Digital Communication has been a huge achievement and is being used by many people, especially teenagers. It is a way of communicating to people around the world using the modern technology, such as teh internet. There are many programs that are made for Digital Communication, such as, MSN messenger, Yahoo Messenger, Skype... etc. This has made communication with people in your own country and around the world a lot easier and cheaper.
    6. 6. Digital Literacy Digital Literacy is where people know when the right time to use the internet and technology is. It is also the capability of using technology itself.

    9. 9. Digital Rights and Responsibilities The internet gives us the pleasure of sitting at home and basically being able to do anything we want. But there are responsibilities and rights when it comes to the use of the internet. Like i said we shouldn't abuse the freedom we have with the internet. i think that if a person is not responsible enough, they should not be aloud to use the internet.
    10. 10. Digital Health and Wellness The internet can have a huge effect on a person’s health and wellness. A negative effect would be if the person is getting cyber-bullied, or if the person gets addicted. But a positive effect would be to get educated by the internet. An example of that would be if a person learns how to play an instrument on the internet.
    11. 11. Digital Security To make our digital life a secure and safe place, the user must make safety measures. These include things like not uploading personal things on the internet, not giving out any of your personal information to someone you do not know or trust, and not to save any of your passwords on a computer thats not yours. There are also programs that protect your computer from things like viruses. That is what digital Security is.
