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 answer.
The internet has changed society a lot. People can easily use many resources, and get informed about important news around the world, just by a simple search in a Web search box. Some people believe that individuals can get a lot of valuable information via the Internet, others say that having access to this much information is problematic. I agree with the first group, two reasons for my view are explored in the next paragraphs. To begin with, people can get valuable information with a little price from their homes. In the past, one needed to pay a high price to learn subjects from tutors, or to buy printed books. For example, I remember when I was 17, I wanted to learn computer programming. But, the high price of the classes and also books were not affordable for my family, so I gave off my interest. On the other hand, last year I learned Python programming just through free online courses. Hence, the Internet let us easily learn. Second, I think people can manage the information they get from Web pages. It is true that encountering a myriad of resources would be confusing for one, people can choose their resources, and choose what topic from each resource is useful for them. For instance, I subscribed to a science magazine, which many famous scientists endorsed , and chose that I just need articles about multiple sclerosis in the field of neuroscience. As a result, when I open the magazine, I first see the multiple sclerosis-related articles written by neuroscientists. Therefore, people can easily manage and decide the piece of information they need. In summary, I believe that the Internet offers people highly valuable information at a cheap price, and thanks to good programmers, people can manage the information they encounter , with a simple search strategy.
