Although originally meant to be a medium for scholars to collaborate and share information, the internet has quickly become a versatile tool for businesses to reach out to their customers (and create new business opportunities in the process) and people to find new forms of entertainment. And such new forms have emerged, from discussion forums (which are oddly entertaining) to more modern forms like video streaming and socializing online.

Here are some of the most popular forms of online entertainment today.
From lifestreams to gaming streams, from live events and conferences to volcanic eruptions people are streaming virtually everything through the internet. And there are loads of others curious about these experiences, too – millions of people follow these streams at home or on the go through their smartphones or other portable internet-capable devices.
A popular pastime ever since the first text-based adventure games were launched by the legendary BBSs (the predecessors of today’s blogs and forums). Some games are casual, others require more dedication. Some give players the chance to explore fantasy worlds or manage their own cities, others allow them to experience the Las Vegas feeling first hand.
Online casinos like Royal Vegas have grown into one of the most profitable forms of online gaming today. Each day thousands of users log on to the Royal Vegas online gaming service, either through its website, its downloadable suite or its mobile casino platform. Their goal is to have fun and maybe to win a bit of cash. And they can find what they are looking for at the Royal Vegas Casino – it has a collection of hundreds of quality games mixed with some of the nicest specials you can think of. And all this in a completely secure environment, safeguarded by third parties and the Royal Vegas casino’s own strict security and privacy policies.
What was once a normal interaction between human beings has transformed into a form of entertainment thanks to the big winners of the internet race, social networks. Today Facebook, the largest of them all, has 1 billion daily active users – which is almost the seventh of the population of the planet. The “entertainment” part comes from following each other’s updates, which sometimes consist of life events and thoughts, but most of the times they are limited to funny cat pictures and misquoted ideas from celebrities.
Radio is not dead – it has merely transformed to keep up with modern technology. But no radio can offer the same personalized experience as today’s music streaming services.
