Internet. Yeah, Internet. Has the internet done much good or bad to this generation of ours? Many would argue that we are in the 21st century and that it’s all about moving forward. Agreed. But, at what cost should we move forward? Huh? Does the good supersede the bad?
There are many pros and cons pertaining to the internet. The ease of accessing information, instant messaging, and banking are the basic necessities of business today. The cons of the internet are that there are sex offenders; illegal downloads of music, pornography of children, viruses, scams.
One of the advantages of using Internet is that we can find every information we want to. The thing we are searching will be for sure found in one of the millions of pages. What is more, the searching process is very short and the Internet portals like ‘YAHOO’ and ‘GOOGLE’ are created to help us with it. In addition, if we have the Internet at home, we don’t have to go to the libraries. In this way, we are sparing our priceless time. Another advantage is that we can communicate almost with everyone through the Net with help of e-mails and messengers. It’s cheaper and faster than the normal mail.
On the other hand, the disadvantages are a serious problem for today’s world. The Internet is causing one of the worst diseases – the Internet addiction. People are wasting their time taking part in the useless chats. We all can relate with spending long hours on social networks like twitter and facebook. In the end, we have little or no productivity. However, it’s good because we can talk with almost everyone from the furthest sides of our planet, but on summary – it’s not worth spending all our time.
To sum up, the Internet is very necessary but we have to learn how to use it and avoid all the dangers of usage. We should remember that it’s only a source of information and not a way to search for serious friendship.
