As many new technological inventions and modern innovations The Internet has many advantages and disadvantages. I would agree with those who consider that the Internet provides people with a lot of valuable information. On the other hand, I would not argue with the rest who think that access to so much information may create problems.
It is a fact that the Internet has changed our lives tremendously. It is a whole miracle how people have access to the global world twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, three hundred sixty-five days a year. We can find and learn almost everything with only one click of the mouse on the screen.
Thanks to the Internet, nowadays, people are not only better informed but also their abilities to communicate with the entire world become unlimited. It is truly hard for me to imagine how the mankind would advance without these uncountable bits of information.
Unfortunately, people who think that access to so much information creates problems are generally correct. Since we live in the Information Age many people have access provided by the Internet to our personal deals. What is more, the Internet brought to life a new kind of criminals called hackers. We all well know how many problems such people can create only within a day to the world communications. Furthermore, any computer program can protect our private life completely, as we are already a part of the global virtual world.
There are many other examples in favor or against both points of view. I cannot generally agree or disagree with any of them because I am thoroughly aware that as the Internet provides people a lot of valuable information and allows them to communicate freely with each other as such free access often creates problems to all of us.
As many things in life the Internet can be either harmful or beneficial. I hope that its advantages will outweigh its disadvantages in the forthcoming future.
