The influence of the Internet: More harm than good or vice versa.
The Internet can influence us in many different ways. The most important use of the internet though, is as a source of information. This pertains to the notion that the internet is a beneficial element without which we wouldn’t be able to stay up-to-date with news and developments, and we wouldn’t have the ability to find information just by pressing a button. On the contrary, we would be required to skim through books and papers, for possibly a long time, in order to find the information we are looking for.
The internet is a great source of information, with virtually limitless boundaries. As the days go by, the internet is in a constant expansion, much like the universe itself, as more and more information becomes available. The more time you spend on the internet, viewing educational and entertaining websites, the more liable you are to increase your overall intelligence, much like reading a book.
Another great use for the internet is finding specific information. Searching through books and archives could take hours, days even. However, with a quick keyboard entry and a mouse click, the information becomes available within a matter of seconds. This expunges time consumption and allows one to move on quickly.
In our age of technology, quick communication is vital. Instant Messaging allows people from around the world to exchange messages virtually instantly, it allows them to talk and see each other, to share pictures and documents.
The internet is very good. The only harm comes from those who do not use it properly, or who do not know how to evade people with malicious intentions, thus falling into their trap.
