General Edit

A user (also referred to as an end user) is "[a] person or entity with authorized access"[2] to a computer or computer network, like the Internet.

Overview Edit

A user accesses and sends and receives data either through individual connections or through organizations such as universities and businesses. Users in this context include both those who use a computer or the Internet primarily to receive information, as well as content creators who use the Internet to distribute information to other end users.
