Nowadays, the Internet has been increasingly more essential to our lives, and information on the Internet has increased dramatically. In this situation, some people might think that the Internet provides a lot of valuable information, whereas others might too much information cause problems. In my view, we can obtain a lot of valuable information on the Internet.
First of all, we can research a lot of things effectively using search sites like Google. The accuracy of the result of search has been increasing these days, so you can get almost all information that you need. For example, I usually use the Internet in order to obtain necessary information at work. I work as a venture capitalist in Japan, and the Internet is extremely useful for my job. When I make a presentation material, when I collect information about a particular company, or when I research about the whole economy, the Internet always provide me necessary information immediately. If there weren't the Internet, the quality of my work would be disastrous. This example evidently illustrates that the Internet provides us a lot of valuable information.
Moreover, the development of technology can prevent us from being confused too much information. It is true that some information might cause problems and make you confused, but we can avoid such false information using modern technology. For instance, Google has developed its page-rank-system, so false or unimportant information is excluded its search result, and we can see only the reliable information. With the development of technology, the information you can get on the Internet will become more and more accurate and valuable in the future. Therefore, there is no doubt that technology could enable us to avoid problems from too much information.
In summary, I agree with the statement that the Internet provides a lot of valuable information. We can not only get a wide variety of valuable information on the Internet but also avoid unnecessary information by utilizing technology.
