    My first experience on the internet was around 1996 or 1997. We got America Online, you know, the ones that sent out those annoying discs in the mail that would get you online and started with their service. These discs were sent to houses a lot, and I kinda wish I collected some of them. I imagine some of them go for a pretty penny. 😀

    Anyway, my first experience was the aol chat rooms and chatting with a bunch of people. We talked to a lot of kids our age and creepy adults I’m sure, but we were always safe online back then. Oh and I think AOL had games too, I think I remember playing games on there.

    But yeah, what was your first experience like on the internet?

    My experience with internet dates back to many years. It was as exciting as it was cumbersome. The speeds were nothing to talk about. Browsers used to take ages to open. But it was fun and exciting once connected. Just to imagine that you are connected to the world was just awesome. Today internet is taken for granted with speeds beyond our imagination. But there was a time when only a few privileged had access to the internet.

    I still remember opening my first mail id in Yahoo. Mine was first a dial up connection. The speed was terrible, but the concept of connecting to the entire world was awesome and exciting. Most of the time the Logo of windows internet explorer would be spinning while the page loads. I would be glued to the screen waiting anxiously to see the loaded page.

    I remember having AOL. And every week we got one of those disks in the mail. We finally decided to do the free trial they offered. And then we got our phone bill. Needless to say, we cancelled right away.

    I was first drawn into internet by ORKUT, many would have forgot that famous social media platform. It was greatly hyped during that time. Yahoo Chat rooms, loved to play Chess online, was fun considering the slow bandwidth still it functioned pretty well.

    I used internet first time on our family computer. To be honest, it was like liberty and it felt so different. Like I was able to watch any carton in this world.
