TOEFL Essay Topic 84 - Some people say that the Internet provides people with a lot of valuable information. Others think access to so much information creates problems. Which view do you agree with? Use specific reasons and examples to support your opinion.
In my opinion, I agree with the statement that the Internet provides people with a lot of valuable information. This is for the following reasons. First, the latest news is available on the Internet. Second, products and services from all over the world are on the Internet. Third, people can make a more informed choice or decision after reading the information on the Internet.
To begin with, the latest news is available on the Internet. This makes the Internet a valuable source, for breaking information about what is going on around the world. An example of this was the recent death of Steve Irwin. I had watched the morning news on television, but there had been no mention of his death. However, when I went on the Internet the front page story was about his death. This illustrates why the Internet is such a valuable source, as it provides the latest breaking news.
Next, products and services from all over the world are on the Internet. This means that everyone can know what is available in other locations within their country and also outside their country. If thay cannot get the service or product locally. For instance, my friend wanted to purchase a reversible wrist splint, this product she could not find anywhere locally. She researched it up on the internet, and actually it was not available anywhere in the United Kingdom. This product was only available in the United States or Canada, so she ordered online from a company in the USA. In this way, it shows how the Internet provides crucial information to people at a touch of a button.
Finally, people can make a more informed choice or decision after reading the information on the Internet. Such a situation happened to my next door neighbour. She had recently been diagnosed with diabetes. She got all worried thinking that this was the end of her life. However, her doctor told her to read up about diabetes and what she could do to help herself on the Internet. So she did this and now she feels much better about the situation. This an example of how the Internet is very important for information.
In conclusion, I agree with the statement that the Internet provides people with a lot of valuable information. This is because of the reasons mentioned above.
