Summary/Abstract: The Internet is a public, global, decentralized system for data transfer and can be used as a cognitive, information and communication tool. Internet must be the subject of study because it is changing and because it is increasingly evident in various areas of society. Learning more about how the Internet works and how can be used will allow better understanding of the future development of the Internet, which will probably happen. Internet brings to researchers in the social sciences, two new things: the first relates to the inclusion of the Internet in the research process and the second, more important, to change the subject of research due to the widespread use of the Internet and other information technologies. Knowledge of Internet and technology opportunities that it provides is prerequisite for the design about role of Internet activity in the overall activities of individuals and organizations. Internet activities can be: substitute, supplement and complement to existing activities. Since most individuals and organizations engaged in multiple activities, this means that it is necessary for each of them separately to decide on how to use it. The main characteristic of the information society is that people are mostly dealing with the information using new information technologies. Mass use of computers and the Internet has led to important consequences for all human activities. In large organizations, employees are increasingly divided between those who make decisions based on information processing, and those who work under the direction. Most of today’s participants in business and educational activities during their formal education is very little taught about the Internet or have studied only the technical aspects. Each Internet user must independently decide how to use it and must understand the opportunities and threats arising from the mass use of new information technologies.
