People unknowingly are using wifi to send out tweets, post controversial statements on Facebook, and chat with their friends over a cell phone connection. Taking these luxuries for granted can be easy to do. However, there are a certain set of graduates that know the importance of information and communication technologies and how to deal with the problems that arise in this field.
