Computer networks are really useful for sharing information! Businesses use computer networks to share folders and data between all of their employees. I personally use computer networks to play games with my friends over the internet. You'll want to be careful what you network your computer to, however, as you can sometimes get viruses and other malware. http://www.cccmd.com/business-it-support/
