It started with online e-mail first and soon spread to online banking, accessing governmental information online, looking up your social security, retirements and benefits information online. Some businesses even ask for your social security number to use as the account key. To top that the social media has more of your personal information along with your photos in the database. We all have reasonable concerns but also understand that we are going through a unique transformation of the way we live. Radical changes came with the indutsrial revolution and now different but rapid changes ae coming through the electronic revolution. These changes are here to stay. The way we shop will change forever. eCommerece or online shopping is here to stay. From groceries to cars, from insurance policies to home loans, the world of electronic commerce, also known as e-commerce had enabled consumers to shop at thousands of online stores and pay for their purchases without leaving the comfort of home.
