The answer is NO.
Because if you're not paying for your internet connection, or you've borrowed some tech from someone you know, then it is not possible to say YES, it's free, because one still owes a favour for the borrowed tech, and there is some kind of cost involved in getting your free WI-FI or other internet connection.
Everything has a cost.
The option of working from home on one's internet WWW, is that one doesn't necessarily have to dress up for an interview to get the job, along with the make-up, petrol, other costs involved.
One also has to pay for electricity for charging and operations of one's connection to the WWW.
And of course, the big question: could I make money for free?
Because TIME is MONEY.
Therefore, it is far better to spend one's TIME constructively, making good money in order to afford all the opportunities and investments life has to offer, via the WWW or in the real world.
A combination of using the WWW/internet and the real world to make ends meet, is a very viable way to keep one afloat.
Some people have no choice but to stay at home, and in so doing, love to find ways to make extra money. The WWW/internet is an excellent venue for them to advertise their skills/wares/talents.
Other people are able to go out into the World and work, and enjoy the social and entertainment available via the WWW/internet.
Sometimes they combine their work, just as the homebody would do, and that allows them more avenues to explore when it comes to building up the businesses they work for, or promoting their own companies.
As for those who have no electricity, there is a problem for them accessing the wonders of the WWW and having the opportunity to grow financially, unless some innovation is forthcoming to create solar powered access wherever in the World people may find themselves. (Some innovations are already a reality and I believe they are working well.)
It all boils down to MONEY, and hoping that there are people who have the TIME & MONEY to finally give EVERYONE an opportunity to rise to the occasion of the WWW/internet, thus leaving a gap for 'normal' people worldwide, to be able to work towards affording to own a device, pay for electricity/solar power to access WI-FI, in order that they may, too, be able to enjoy such sites as IBO etc. and the other trusted sites, where one is able to make a few dollars 'for free' by just watching ads/videos/etc.
Lots of people have the time, but not the knowledge/equipment/favour to 'come to the party', like I have been able to.
I have electricity and devices. With that, I have been able to build myself up to this point.
I'm by no means making millions, and don't cover the costs of keeping the electricity, rent, etc. paid, let alone buying the latest devices! But I'm happy to say that with the few dollars I make doing what I do (see my list of things to do at http://rcarosin.webs.com
), I contribute as best I can towards the WWW cost of living.
So, NOTHING IS FOR FREE. Every thing costs something.
If I've learned one thing, it is that one must not give up one's day job. It may be just a saying, but understanding the whole of the meaning, is important.
Working from home on the WWW can demand a seven day week, and sometimes, countless hours of labour. It's not easier than any other work.
WORK equals REWARD.
And together we can work towards eliminating one of the worries of this world.
With the WWW/internet, this World can offer each and every person a way to earn a living. But, that's futuristic.
In the meantime, we must strive to keep it an honest work place, and fair.
Not easy. But I'm sure we can all give it a good try!
I'm excited. I know it could work out well!
Together we can, I've heard it said.
