Communication is a form of interaction in which messages are sent through channels by using a contextual code. The electronic revolution has brought mass media communication into life. Computer-based communication is the first mass communication medium in which there is a real interaction between the sender and the receiver. This communication has encouraged progress in social, economic, political, cultural, and educational sectors of human life. This article discusses the positive consequences of the expansion of the online world. E-based forms of communication bring integrity to peopleʼs lives through online chatting, discussion boards, and e-mails, lead to economic prosperity through marketing and advertising, help to strengthen democracy, encourage cultural globalization and expand knowledge through a large number of educational resources available online.
