Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? “Overall, the widespread use of the internet has a mostly positive effect on life in today’s world.” Use reasons and details to support your opinion.
Nowadays, the internet is the most important way to receive information and knowledge about what is happening around the world. But everything that glitters is not gold and the widespread use of this technology giant is an example. I totally disagree with the idea of how the massive use of the network has a positive effect on life. In this essay, I am going to expose the reasons why I feel this way. First, the internet is an enormous "place" full of things. The problem is that not every single upload on the internet is done in a correct way. In addition, you must know how to search in the network to escape from the dark web and all the online robberies. For example, when you are going to buy something online you must analyze if the website is reliable because you are going to put all of your data there and if the web is a fraud, you will pay the consequences. Second, the widespread use of the internet affects our children. Their minds are not prepared for this type of information and it is really important that their parents control the use of technological devices in order to avoid the children's exposition to a lot of 18+services. Furthermore, the development of their personality may be influenced by the use of the internet at an early age. For instance, I see a huge difference between my childhood and the one that is having my brother. Nowadays, toddlers do not know how to play with toys because they play with consoles. All in all, I truly believe that the massive use of the internet in our society is creating and will create several problems in the future. It is true that the internet has brought a lot of important progress but it has also taken out of our history parts that we will regret.
