Meetings are done through online and online discussion forums helps for the communication in the field of education and others. Human feelings have been bonded to the deepest by social media in our lives. The majority of the population is now connected only with the help of social media. So we won’t be able to call or communicate with other people. Cell phone providers will lose up to a billion dollars in 24 hours.

Effect of internet has impacted not only in other fields, but also in the field of health care. Technology combined with internet provides a good patient experience and better treatment. Now,  people get medical advice through online directly with the physician. But online health care facilities will get affected during the downtime. They will have difficulties at fixing appointments at their convenience so that patients call continuously interrupting the plans and care, where there would be too many preoccupied patients which will make it difficult for the service providers(doctors) to call the patients back.
