As far as trust in transactions or with the people on the Internet is concerned, it is pretty much even. The manner to which you can trust and negotiate online has so far been leveled these days, making them practically in equal footing as far as daily activities is concerned.
The Internet philosophy of bringing people closer and making life easier through various developments on communication and e-commerce has come a long way. Since its inception, a lot of changes have evolved. There are still a number of people who have their doubts on how to properly transact and deal with people over the web but much of these figures have obviously dwindled.
A lot has to do with how controlling bodies aimed at protecting the interest of most people transacting over the web has been developed. Fraud and scammers are still around but this time around they can be traced and jailed if they are not careful. Unlike before when cybercops were not around to make sure that fear or some form of authority would be there to assist most people, the story is different now.
Add to the fact that online companies have been assisted pretty well also. To make a transaction work, steps to ensure that there is no wild goose chase in the offing has further honed online shopping and business over the web today.
The Internet philosophy has indeed changed. These days, the web has been the prime resource to check out. This and more are expected to ensure that this philosophy is further honed and brightened for the people having doubts on the Internet and its laurels.
