    information society

    This era is called information society. So business using social network service flourishes/thrives. Many businesses use internet connection and share real time information.
    In the past, we caught a taxi on the road or called/phoned for a taxi/cab. But nowadays, we call a taxi on/with a smart phone app. By using the app, we can know the taxi’s real time location and average fare to/for the destination.


    Are the underlined correct?

    Re: information society

    Who says we're now in an "information society"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Who wrote that text, and who do businesses share information with?

    If you make up a phrase, you can't say "This era is called XXX". That suggests that it's a commonly used phrase. The closest thing I can think of is perhaps "digital information age". However, you still can't start with "This era is called ..." for the same reason I gave earlier.

    The destination to what?
