The world wide web has also become an important type of ICT in the contemporary world because almost everything involves the use of the worldwide web in different ways. the world wide web also known as the internet enables other forms of ICTs such as computers and cell phones to be used online for accessing, utilizing, storing, retrieving and sending of information from a user to another and from one location to the same or different location throughout the world. Because of the world wide web, the world today is referred to as a global village because of the advantage of connectivity.
The worldwide web has quickly become a viable ICT used by more than 130 million people around the world to access various communication and information sharing activities. The information provided on the worldwide web is abundant, comprehensive because of a variety of sources and easily available because it is accessible via different devices such as cell phones and the world wide web. As such, the use of the world wide web helps to generate different types of information for instance, educational, social, economic, technological, political, religious and ethnic information among others. Different institutions, for instance, religious institutions, business institutions, educational institutions, and cultural institutions have pages that are supported by the worldwide web or use the world wide web to communicate to their followers, supporters, potential supporters, opponents and users who are neutral to the information being communicated.
The use of cell/ mobile phones has facilitated different forms of surveillance. First, cell phones have facilitated government surveillance on issues of opposition activists and journalists. The mobile phones help countries monitor perceived political opponents both inside and outside the country, for instance, the telecom surveillance implemented by the Ethiopian government. However, people have complained about this surveillance indicating that it violates freedoms of expression, access to information and association.
