Final Blog Post: Internet

Internet is one of the most important things in our life, it has become an indispensable tool for us in almost everything we do, we need it at work, school, research, basically it is our encyclopedia to the world and it makes everything so easy and we can reach to almost anything we can imagine on the internet, things we couldnt read, search, watch before now can be found on the internet. Of course as everything else in this world internet has its goods and its bads for example, surfing on the internet for hours is for sure a bad thing. In this blog I want to talk about the good aspects and bad aspects of the internet.

I'm sure I would have a very long list if I mention everything that is good about the internet on this blog, so I will only mention a few things that I think are the most important and good aspects of the internet. In my opinion, the best thing about the internet is that it connects us to the entire world just by sitting on a computer, for example, before if we wanted to know about something specific about a different country we ahd to travel all the way there and research by ourselves but now with the internet we could just do the research while sitting at home. Another good aspect of the internet is that we can reach to our relatives, friends all over the world not just by emailing but actually being able to talk to them face to face with programs such as MSN messenger, Skype or Yahoo. Good aspects of the internet.

Internet saves so much time and can do so much good to us if we know how to use it wisely and responsibly, but when we start using it too much or abusing it, that is when the bad aspects of the internet begin. One of the worst aspects of the internet is its addiction. It is so easy to get addicted to the internet without even noticing that we are getting addicted specially when it comes to online games. This website shows internet addiction statistics in the past few years. We should be aware of getting addicted to the internet and take precautions so we won't get to the bad aspects of the internet.
There is one more bad aspect about the internet which is the hacking, hackers abuse the internet and try to make money by stealing credit card information, valuable company information and others. These hackers have to be stopped in order to have a safer internet service and in order to reduce the bad aspects of the internet. This website shows how to prevent hackers and gives a lot of good information about being safe from getting you information hacked.

We should be more careful when we use the internet so we can use it in its best and not get the to the bad aspects of the internet, we should be careful not to get addicted to it and we should not do bad things with it such as hacking.
