Long before the internet people had to use a tool called a pen and another piece of equipment called ‘paper’ to actually write messages to one another. The finished message would need to be enclosed in more paper, called an envelope, postage needed to be paid, and the letter was sent and delivered by people.
What would happen if the internet didn’t exist?
If the Internet suddenly flatlined, social media users would start calling each other on the phone, overloading working telecommunication systems… Unless cell phone towers and telephone lines were also shut down. Then you’d go back to writing letters and sending them via post. Forget about wireless file transfers.
