The Internet’s Effect on Today’s Modern Society


”We all know that the Internet has been perhaps the most outstanding innovation in the field of communication in the history of mankind. But Internet has its own advantages and disadvantages. But usually, greater magnitude of advantages outweighs its disadvantages.”
For me, the Internet has revolutionized the world, but it brings with it both good and bad things to people.
We can connect and interact with others quickly and cheaply. We are “closer” to others because of this connectivity. We can use Skype, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoomail etc.
The Internet is like the “knowledge” center of the world. We can find information on almost anything in a number of languages quickly and efficiently. We don’t need to really go to a physical library anymore because everything is online.
The Internet is great for learning in the form of e-learning and distance education. This is useful not only for children but also for adults.
The Internet has given rise to new businesses and new ways of earning money. Look at Ebay, Amazon, and all  other e-commerce websites. People can just work from home and make tons of money if they have the knowledge, ability and luck.
DISADVANTAGES

There are new types of crime and security threats. It’s not 100% safe due to hackers and people who steal sensitive information and other people’s identities. For children, there is a threat of pornography and pedophiles. Many children want to grow up too quickly and meet strangers which may lead them to rape and child abuse.  Some adults and this leads to a communication breakdown and problems interacting with other social skills. Children and adults both tend to spend too much time online.
