Uploaded by N_th_n on Feb 08, 2016

WWW (World Wide Web)
Nowadays there are over 635 million websites in the world but be warned some websites may give you viruses, come up with inappropriate things or just totally lie to you. These can be very annoying but there are some useful tips on how to avoid them:
• Web address - Some web addresses don’t contain www. Most websites without www. usually give fake information or are not meant for publicity. So check before you go on the web page!
