To an average internet user who mainly spend his time on the internet by searching some keywords needed to finish his school assignments and then after he will login to his social network account to connect with his friends while listening to his favorite music on youtube, to this user, his internet life weren’t that complicated. But to a geeky type of internet life, things were not like this. You probably have dozen of forum accounts, have one account to each of the social network sites, read some news on some mainstream media’s site and you need to check your favorite youtube channel for a new release.
