I was a little late in life getting online, and before that people on tv and magazines were always like "point your browser to www.whatever.com". I thought the browser was the modem and I thought it worked like an antennea. You'd turn it, try the address, and if it didn't work you'd have to keep turning it a little until it got the right reception and could find the page you wanted. I dreaded going onine and going through all that hassle just to visit websites.
In recent years, I thought closed groups on Facebook were ones that you couldn't join anymore because they had closed down. Hahahaha.
for my first Internet year, i believe all the ".ca" sites stands for Calif State websites.
My nephew, when he was 7, used to believe that websites were "gone" from his computer if he clicked on the Back buttom and they did not appear. I discovered this when I noticed that every night he would sit & try to think of all the websites he would need. Then he would visit all of them to "bring" them back on his computer.
When i was 3 i used to believe that when a person wanted a baby they would goon this website called "Make-a-baby" you would write in all the details ( gender, eye colour, hair colour, personality etc.) then they would deliver it to you. I asked my mum why men didn't go on www.make-a-baby.com she said men couldn't be bothered to go through all the questions. Then i found out why men couldn't have babies, nice.
Many years ago, the website "www.www.com" was an informational site about the history of the Internet (it's since been removed). One day, I accidentally typed in "www.com" and hit ENTER. My mom was looking over my shoulder, and when the info page came up, she told me, "Obviously, if you type www.com, you don't know how to use the Internet. That's not a real website, it's the computer trying to teach you what you're doing wrong."
I was 10, she was 40. She totally believed that, and I was internally laughing at her for years.
I used to believe that a "website" was a job, called a websighter, because I used think that anyone who could find a spiderweb would get paid like a normal job (firefighter, doctor, Etc!) i aLways said When I Grow uP, I WANNA BE a WEBSIGHTER!!!!!!freaky huh.
You know how when your on the internet and you type the website in wrong, it usually takes you to a search website? well I used to think everytime the serch site came up, it was an actual search engine liek google so I always thought "Daing! There are WAY too many search engines!"
I once heard some people talking about being "game savvy" I misheard it for "Game Sabby" so I thought there was some girl named Sabby who had a website where she had all these tips for video games..
I used to believe that email addresses were real websites, so when I was 5 and my friend's mom gave me her email in case, I typed it in and got really mad because nothing poped up.
This is my brother, not me.
His name is Tucker, and we were signing up for this website. He wanted to put "tuckerman100" as his screen-name, but the computer kept saying, "That's naughty! Why don't you choose a nicer name?" We were perplexed, and finally got our mother to help. Needless to say, she was furious when she found out that the company had mistaken "t" for "f." Tucker doesn't use his name as a username anymore...
