Internet is a network of networks that consists of millions of private, public, academic, business, and government networks, of local to global scope. Today, the Internet is a public, cooperative, and self-sustaining facility accessible to hundreds of millions of people worldwide. A social networking service is an online service, platform, or site that focuses on building and reflecting of social networks or social relations among people, who share interests and activities. This study examined the condition of Internet use and social media. Data of 50 working adults was analysed. Even though the persons using blogs, social networks, video on demand (VoD), wikis and other vehicles can quickly share information with others, the study findings suggest that the use of social media in the workplace is growing at a rapid pace.
