Information Society

The Information Society is a stage in the development of society characterised by the ability of its members (individuals, companies and public administrations) to obtain and share any information instantaneously, from anywhere and in the way they prefer.

This is a new type of society, in which the creation, modification and distribution of information forms an essential part of its economic and social activity. The use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) applied to the economy and the production process is considered to be characteristic of this society.
