Information and communication technologies (ICT), including the Internet and a plethora of social networking applications, are important for people with lifelong disability in their day-to-day life. Such technologies offer possibilities and opportunities for this group of people to enjoy a range of new social interactions. Through the internet, people with disability are able to meet and interact with other individuals who struggle with the same issues or meet people sharing their interests.
