The advantages and disadvantages of internet


The Internet can be defined as a network of computers, designed to receive and send data in the form of e-mails, media, blogs and webcasts, etc. The Internet has tremendous potential and a lot to offer in terms of services. However, like every single innovation in science and technology, the Internet has its own advantages and disadvantages.

Some of advantages of internet that I research are : “Faster Communication”. The foremost target of Internet has always been speedy communication and it has excelled way beyond the expectations. Now, you can communicate in a fraction of second with a person who is sitting in the other part of the world. For more personal and interactive communication, you can avail the facilities of chat services, video conferencing and so on. Secondly : “Information Resources Information” is probably the biggest advantage that Internet offers. Students and children are among the top users who surf the Internet for research. Today, it is almost required that students should use it for research or the purpose of gathering resources. Even teachers have started giving assignments that require extensive research on the Internet. Lastly : “The Entertainment”. Entertainment is another popular reason why many people prefer to surf the Internet. In fact, the Internet has become quite successful in trapping the multifaceted entertainment industry. Downloading games or just surfing the celebrity websites are some of the uses people have discovered. Even celebrities are using the Internet effectively for promotional campaigns

Some of the disadvantages of internet that I research are : “Spamming”. Spamming refers to sending unwanted e-mails in bulk, which provide no purpose and needlessly obstruct the entire system. Such illegal activities can be very frustrating for you as it makes your Internet slower and less reliable. Secondly : “Virus Threat”. Internet users are often plagued by virus attacks on their systems. Virus programs are inconspicuous and may get activated if you click a seemingly harmless link. Computers connected to the Internet are very prone to targeted virus attacks and may end up crashing.

Lastly : “Pornography”. Pornography is perhaps the biggest disadvantage of the Internet. Internet allows you to access and download millions of pornographic photos, videos and other X-rated stuff. Such unrestricted access to porn can be detrimental for children and teenagers. It can even play a havoc in marital and social lives of adults.

For the conclusion, I hope that everyone who is using internet must control their management. Do not use the internet for a bad reason. In other words, with all its falls the internet has the potential to make your life simple and convenient, as well as wreak havoc in your life, its influence is mostly dictated by the choices you make while you are online. With clever use, you can manage to harness its unlimited potential.
