The Way the Internet Changed Human Competitiveness

As soon as the internet became big, it has influenced the way we live our lives. This is probably one of the most impactful technologies that introduced so many changes in such a short period of time.

If you took away the internet today, a lot of people wouldn’t be able to adjust their lives so easily, and this shows just how important it is. Various aspects of our lives have been changed with the internet and, today, we are going to talk about competitiveness on the internet and how it is manifested in the online world.


People already enjoyed playing multiplayer games, but when the internet became a common thing, so did online multiplayer games. The prospect of playing games with people around the world was very ground-breaking and more and more gamers started to emerge.

After a while, online video games became competitive and, today, we have professional gamers playing in large tournaments winning huge prizes with thousands of fans all over the world watching them play. With things like CSGO predictions, people also bet on games and compete in this way as well. This has become a legitimate career path for gamers. In the past not much was invested in these tournaments hence the low cash price or contracts that these players get. Now with hundreds of investors and money pouring into this industry gamers are now making a lot more.

Competing on social media

Social media is probably one of the most popular parts of the internet and it has also sparked competitiveness among people. Sadly, on social networks, people compete with their “lives” and try to impress others on these platforms through selfies, posts, tweets, and achievements they made in their lives.

Career competition

Business has also changed a lot on the internet. A lot of people have found their education, training, and work online as there are many options available. People can present their skills, knowledge, and portfolios online through many different mediums. This has created a new sense of job competitiveness online.

Gaming now is a legitimate career path that gamers can take now. In the past when the industry was first growing there was not much money funded into the gaming tournament world so a career in it was not as lucrative as it is now. With time these tournaments will get a lot bigger and a lot more competitive in terms of growing a career in it.

These are just some of the ways that we think human competitiveness has reflected on the online world. Which other ways do you think are visible?
