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.

Nowadays the use of internet has become a broad range and as a result, it has both positive and negative consequences on people's life. I, personally, think the positive effects of the internet weigh more than the negative ones for the following reasons. To begin with, the advanced innovation of internet obviously improves communication faster than ever. Communication becomes so smooth that everyone can text, send messages, video call,and even share their live location via internet. Consequently, it is really helpful in an emergency. My personal experience is a compelling illustration of this. When I was going back home alone, I dealt with a suspicious taxi driver who verbally assaulted me and was likely to harass me. Thanks to the internet, I shared my location with my family and I called them on the video call. Thus, I felt so safe letting them know where exactly I was and it was totally a relief for me that the driver could not do anything harmful. Next, in the past years, people faced a lot of difficulties due to the delay of information such as the weather notice and the updated news. However, today, we can fetch important news just in seconds by surfing the internet. It has brought so many benefits to our lives, I believe. When my family was on a trip to the beach, I did not go together because I had a final exam. While I was watching the newsfeed on Facebook, I saw urgent news of a tsunami notice. Then, I immediately called my family to remind them of the news. Because of the faster communication, they could escape from the big diaster on the beach. All in all, internet is the biggest innovation of the twentieth century which turns the world into modern technology. It would be better if we could use it in the right place.
