How does The Internet influence life in today’s world?

How does The Internet influence life in today’s world?

The widespread use of the Internet has given people access to information in a level never experienced before. How does this increase in availability of information influence life in today’s world?

The Internet is one of the most important technological breakthroughs of the 20th century. I wouldn't be wrong if I told that it almost changed the life of our generation at all. Although some people say that the Internet is always beneficial, I personally not agree with them. It provides us with different and freshest information for studying, communicating or just developing ourselves. However, there are also several drawbacks.

On the one hand, the Internet changed our way of finding new information and even friends. Firstly, the most important thing is the amount and diversity of information. Spending hours in libraries is no more necessary. I have everything I need for my university research paper at home. Secondly, this information could be taken as fast as never before. I just go to Google and type what I want to read about; then it shows me a thousand of links about it. Finally, I can find the most interesting people from all over the world using the Internet. We can discuss films, science or even help each other in solving different problems. For example, Internet helps me in studying English because I can communicate with native and advanced speakers using the e-mail, forums and Skype. And all this things I can do sitting at home.

On the other hand, the amount of information is not usually means its quality. If I can find several valuable sources among the hundred, it is actually success, because 90 percents contains quite weak information or even advertising posts, erotic images and computer viruses. I cannot imagine how to show the Internet to my children in the future. I suppose the Internet should be moderated more carefully and maybe there should be separated locations for this sort of materials. Moreover, working as a teacher, I see how much time modern children spend on the Internet just playing or chatting about nothing instead of going for a walk and have a good time with their real friends and parents. 

In conclusion, the Internet means, in my opinion, the International revolution. It is very useful for studying and friendship; however, because of the low quality and some uncensored sources sometimes I think that its influence on our society and, especially on our children, is terrible.
