The Internet has improved our life.

internet

The internet has improved our life. But is this really an improvement?

There are some arguments both for and against.

One positive aspect of the internet is convenience.

Firstly, you can communicate with people all over the world.

Secondly, you can find any information in the web.

Thirdly, it’s easier to do shopping online because it saves your time, money and energy.

Furthermore, you can watch TV, listen to radio, watch films online.

In addition, you may have fun in social networking.

On the other hand, there are lot’s of people who spend an enormous amount of time in front of their computers and laptops. Doctors and psychologists say it’s a big problem that does harm to people’s health. Internet addiction syndrome is recognized as a new illness.

Moreover, people who spend too much time in virtual reality stop hanging out with their friends.

What is more, being online can be dangerous sometimes. Parents and teachers must warn their children about the dangers of the internet.

In conclusion, I’d like to say that we can’t live without the internet but we have to use the World Wide Web sensibly. 

As far as I am concerned,  I spend much time online surfing the net because it helps me to do my homework. I often download the music I like and play computer games online. I often e-mail and post my English essays on the website to improve my writing skills.
