The Internet has become increasingly prevalent in the recent years. As is subtly illustrated in the picture above, there is a keyboard of a computer and a mouse which is connected with our beautiful blue planet.
Like TV, the Internet benefits people hugely. With the Internet, the home will become a library, a school, an office and an entertainment center. All transactions, from banking to shopping, will be performed electronically and all information, from train schedules to discount-price goods, will be as close as the press of a key. In addition to providing us a great many of the facilities and services we now must travelto obtain, with the Internet, the computer will even let us communicate directly with people all over the world and with information sources world wide. Despite the increase in efficiency and convenience generated by the Internet, the changes it brings could very well lead to potentially adverse consequences. For instance, as nearly all activities could be conducted in the comfort of our homes, we could all become hermit-like, never feeling any need to leave the house. This would be unfortunate because our children especially will become so addicted to the Internetthat they might never be exposed to social interaction.
Unquestionably, the challenge of the Internet means we all should consider how we can control it, so that it won’t control us.
