Well, Just to compare the usage of the Internet... For Majority's responses would you think that the internet, its introduction to us is helpful, useful or more on the "destructive" side? For me, i really appreciate the internet. its got a lot of purpose, a lot of good things along with if than bad things of course. There are just those that would really try to destroy our trusts in some sites, causing us to lose data, have stolen information but if you are careful... Internet is really one of the best inventions ever... right?

The internet is a revolution - The internet is a revolution that was achieved in the last century.
With the introduction of online banking,internet telephony and online instant shopping,I wonder what comes next! I love the internet and also know how to handle it judiciously. It has brought on a whole new dimension to my life. It has made life easier for me and given me access to the world at my fingertips. Of course the internet has positive as well as negative aspects. One has to be careful and at the same time enjoy the benefits of one of the most revolutionary inventions of the last century!

For me I would definately say that the Internet is very helpful and a Great way for people who want to earn some extra $$ being online network with others. It is also a Great way to meet many wonderful people from all over the world, and to give them a way to learn about so many different things. People also just need to learn to be cautious from the Scammers, etc. out there and have fun. To me being online is one of the Best things I have ever done.

I am into academic research in the field of artificial intelligence and internet is one of my major source of research material provider.TBH it depends from person to person some believe internet is evil and think those people belong to the generation of the 60s/70s who don't want the traditional methods to dry up b'cause they cant handle a mouse/keyboard so they criticize without even experiencing it first hand.I have been using Internet since I was 10 years old and went a lot pass by from windows 95,98,Me and XP to now working on windows vista .I have been attacked several times by malware and went through multiple disk formatting sessions but in the end I would say I love the internet and cant get enough of it.

It can be use a communication to connect peoples idea. With or without the internet, i think people can steal or do bad things. That is the nature of man.

Internet makes the sharing of information possible for people from all walks of life. Anyway, internet contains also a lot of deceptive information that are untrue and is created for publicity. There, whether Internet is helpful or destructive depends on how you use it. Anyway, you will need to do some study and make sure that the source of information is from a reputable/trusted site before taking them as real.

I think internet is great. Of course there are the viruses that can destroy all your work on the computer, but if you have a good internet service provider, and a good anti-virus you can forget about this problem. There is another problem on the internet, the people who want to scam us, the false buying sites that take our credit cards data and then steal our money. But over the internet you can meet new people, nice people, you can learn lots of stuff and can do almost all your work from home, pay taxes, buy things, watch movies, television, and so on. So i think i made my point, internet is a great invention, as long as we are careful with some security problems.

That is absolutely depends on the person who use the internet. Everything has the same part of goodness and badness, and so is the internet. It has it's goodness, and has the badness either. What will you get from the internet, the bad or the good is depends on your manner when using it, on how wise or how reckless you treat it. If you use it wisely, then you will gain it's goodness, it's benefit, and you will find internet as a helpful and useful inventions. At the other side, if you use it recklessly, then sooner or later, you will gain it's badness, it's danger, and you will meet the internet as a destructive inventions. So, as I said earlier, it depends on the person who use it.

For me the Internet is been beneficial in innumerable ways. I've learned so much on it, got my job thanks to it. Learned new skills and talked to people I could never talk to before. Plus I get my news on it too.

There's always two sides to everything---good and bad. Same for the internet. To me, it's good and bad and it's equal in the quantity. For the good side, the internet provides a lot of information and we can access almost everything from there. For the bad, it relates more to students and time management. The internet is a nightmare to parents, if you know what I mean. If you don't, let me explain. Nowadays, because of the advancement in everything especially since the development of the internet, children have since become more aware of everything and there are online games and social networking sites like Facebook for them to access and entertain themselves, which, all of these will contribute to their bad performance in school. Children and students don't manage their time well and therefore, all the internet activities have harmed them. In this case, it's destructive.

I agree, internet is one of the great inventions ever made.For me.... i think its how you use it.......if you are in too good hobbies,browsing or your using it for research,and work related internet is good.....but since there are lots of websites...there are sites that are harmful to us especially to kids .. it is really at the users how we control, and not use the internet to bad motives.....conscience, conscience ,conscience!

Anything has its pros and cons, Internet is not an exception, it is created by human, and used by human, it is both helpful and harmful, it all depends on people, don't just blame on the technique human create. If we do good things on it and know how to control ourselves using it, it will help you much on information, entertainment, etc. But if we use it for bad purposes, or can not manage ourselves and let internet affect you in the negative ways, it will be bad in the users' opinion. I myself think Internet is great as it does aid me a lot in my life. It gives me information, show me updates, keep me nearer to the world, enhance my knowledge, entertain me, support my business, etc. Tons of things Internet did help me and I really feel grateful to the creation of this advanced technique! Have a great day!

You're adsolutely right chiyosan. Making time faster and work shorter from home to school or office so it gives a lot of good things. Furthermore, almost all have two-ways, the pros and cons or the advantages or disadvantages so its depend upon the user if she/he do this helpful or destructive. We only take extra care on what were ours not to destroy others.

I think internet can be either good or destructive tool. It depends on how we use it, just like a knife or fire. As for me, internet is, of course, very useful. As a journalist internet helps me a lot, providing me with fast and up to date information. I can also get music or buy stuff without needing to go outside. And, can you imagine sending physical letters that takes one or two weeks to arrive? E-mail helps!
