The Internet: Good or Bad

The internet have evolved so much over the years and now nearly everyone is on it one way or the other. You do anything and access almost with just a simple click. But many people think that internet is bad because everything is right there for all to see (especially the children) and is not being controlled well enough (especially with all the hackers out there putting viruses on our computers and stealing our identity). Also, people practically live on the internet 24/7 and lose interest in other activities. What do you think?

I think the Internet is a good thing. But as with all good things, moderation is the key.

I can see both points of view. In one way the internet is good...because you can access almost anything yo uwant using the internet. It helps millions of people earn money every single day. Plus it helps people meet other people that could turn out to be the best friend you have ever had....but for that same reason the internet can be harmful. People are not always who they say they are. People can steal your identity and all sorts of other things. I think as long as you watch your children while they are using the internet, the internet can be a safe and fun place for children. If you don't watch your children on the internet it could turn into a dangerous place....so in my personal opinion I think the internet can be a safe and unsafe place....it is all accourding as to how the internet is used...

There are always two sides of the coin and the internet is one of those who have two sides. The internet is full of ideas, stuff and information. Some are real while other are not. The internet was created not only for us to use but also to watch. There are a lot of wrong-doers that wreck the whole online haven and make our stay here a nightmare. We cannot be inflicted by harm if we also watch our own backs while we use the internet. We also have to be responsible in using it so we do not encounter problems such as what you have mentioned, all the hackers and stuff. As they say, "With great power come great responsibility." It's either we use it for the right reasons or simply abuse it to our end. The internet boasts great stuff that sometimes are too good to be true and that's for us to find out and avoid.
