THE INTERNET: FOR BETTER OR FOR WORSE?
Nowadays, at work or at home, a large number of people use the Internet. It is clear that the Internet is hugely popular, but has it really improved our lives?
In my opinion, it has, and will continue to improve our lives as more and more people become connected around the world.
First of all, the Internet has increased our ability to communicate. We no longer need to use letters (or 'snail-mail') to contact people. On the Internet, you can send an email to a person on the other side of the world, and they will receive it immediately.
Furthermore, the Net gives us instant access to information and knowledge. If you want to know something you no longer need to go to the library or ask a teacher. For example, you can type a question in an Internet search engine and it will look for a site that will help you answer it. Anyone with Internet access has information that can help them improve their knowledge of the world at their fingertips.
On the other hand, some people believe that the Internet is anti-social and has actually worsened our lives. They complain about sites on the Internet that cause anti-social behaviour. For example, they say some sites encourage violent behaviour.
In conclusion, it is clear that the Internet has changed our lives forever. I believe that it has greatly improved our lives by allowing us to communicate faster and giving us access to information. However, we should not forget that the Internet is a powerful tool, and like any powerful tool it can be used for good as well as bad. It is up to us to choose.
