History

The World Wide Web was developed in 1989 by Tim Berners-Lee. Many mistakenly identify the World Wide Web with the Internet, but this is not true: the Internet appeared much earlier. The World Wide Web is a narrower concept that refers to a network of documents connected by hyperlinks. It is interesting that initially this invention was not intended for a wide range of users, however, having hit the masses, it began to quickly gain popularity. Now we can no longer imagine life without this phenomenon. By 2022, there were about five billion Internet users in the world and more than one and a half billion active sites. 58,4% of the global population uses social media.

World Wide Web Day was born as a tribute to a great invention that changed our world.
