In a recent article titled, Social networks to solve complex problems: Mark Zuckerberg, the idea that only 1/3 of the world has access to the internet is presented. The article then goes on to say that within 10 years, there is the possibility for the other 2/3 of the world to gain access to the internet. I found this very interesting to think about, especially after learning of the concept of gatekeepers and bridges in networks. When these millions of people are given access to the internet, they will be seeing it for the first time. This brings up the possibility that they may be limited in what they are able to see and who they are able to connect with. Depending on the “node”, in this case most likely a government, that connects the new users to the old, the new could potentially be restricted from the rest of the world. Using North Korea as an example, this country is completely separated from the rest of the world when it comes to internet usage. This type of strict censorship is extreme, but it poses as a possibility for all new users who will be connecting to the internet. One way to prevent a single gate keeper from all this power could be to introduce multiple outlets to the new users. This way their community will not be connected to the larger network by only a single node, but rather by multiple different nodes. This will allow for the most free form of internet usage to occur, and allow the new users to maximize their benefits. Once the entire world is connected in one single network online, it will be very interesting to see what types of data large companies such as Facebook and Google will be able to attain from these new internet users, and how social networks are able to connect people of all backgrounds.
