What is "Netizen"?
The first generation of Internet users when the Internet was first born. The World Wide Web is created using a native HTML. Web pages are static and meant mainly to convey and share information.
The second generation sees people use the Internet in their work and business. We see many portals are created to aggregate many kinds of information. We began to see some level of interactive and e-commerce capabilities.
In the era of third generation, usage of Internet has been part of their daily lives. Social media is the norm. Smartphones (like iPhone and Blackberrys) became their main device and tool to communicate, interact and socialize with others. Most users have their own Facebook, MySpace, Twitter etc accounts. Netizens spend a significant amount of their time on the Net.
