hi there everyone,i use internet for a lot of things, expecially to search something interesting and when i need information, in internet we can find everythig we need and much more, the only thing we can do is to choose what are the true things we find on internet. I think that in internet the 90% of things we find are only commercials and false things, or meybe something completly different from what we want to know. The only thing that is required on internet is the ability to find what is true or not. And you? do you use internet when you need informations? And what do you think about informations on internet? Thank you for your responses :)

I use internet everyday.I view news from sina.com every moring and search papers about my reserach.Also i can get movies and musics from internet which are free. When we get the information on internet we should judge wether the information right or not.Through there maybe more unreal things and hypocrisy people i keep my sincere heart towards others on internet.

Hello codris! I frequently use the internet. Yes, I use the internet when looking for information that is not readily available offline. But it is important to be knowledgeable enough to know which information is correct. Going online is not a guarantee that we can get the correct information as there could be millions of matches for our search.

I use the internet when I need some quick information about something or for reference purposes only. I rarely do the copy paste project unless it's necessary

i use it quite a bit for researching. encyclopedias are now online and additional resources like ebooks an emagazines are available as well. I go to the library when needed for citing sources because usually if it's in print then you can cite your sourse and your copy right sources as well. The mla and other sources of writing your sources are different for the internet and most of the time if you just use one or two types of sources it's easier to write them at the end of paper or where you need to put them.

Yes my friend. I use internet when I need any information that is not available from other sources (library, TV/Radio, people etc.). Of course, there are information on the internet are confusing and hard to believe. But my brain is smart enough to sort out the true ones. Though sometimes I fail to get the right information, I can reach closest to the correct ones. So, it doesn't bother me when some sites prove to be baffling. Thank you.

Lots of advantages you guys said, but in some cases you should keep your guard on some bad or treating information. For instance in China there are mass of information which can help you to earn money through investing in stock market, and a lot of people lose their money on these information, another case is some information will help you, especially for younger beautiful girls to find out a ideal husband, there are always two kinds of result, one is the girl is infringed or raped, the other is the lier(the man who pretend being marry with you) will use out your money.

Internet is one of the best place where you can find useful information. There are lots of reliable sources for information. Go to some popular sites, news sites or any sites with reputed name. You will find good information there. Yes there are lots of sites which contains suspicious information. But you can avoid these sites by doing little research on it. Have a great day.

Just as one cannot believe everything one reads in a newspaper or sees on TV news, not all the "facts" on the internet are factual, but with discernment, one can learn an awful lot online. It is my best source of information of all kinds. It is indispensable to modern life. I do not at all understand how some people get by without it.

I often use the internet when I want to find information about a topic. There are many kinds of information on the internet, and sometimes it is difficult to tell the difference between reliable information and false information. I usually try to find more than more than one source in order to find the truth about a topic. In some cases a site like Wikipedia is useful, but I don't like to use it as my only source. I have become used to finding information on the internet, and when my computer or my internet don't work I really miss it.

I use the Internet all the time for many different kinds of information. It is by trial and error I have favorite sites. WEbMD for example for medical information my own doctor has magazines from that site in the waiting room. Other site if it for something important I check the credentials of the site. I know never to use blogs or John Doe's opinion on a subject unless it is linked to a credible source.

I use the internet all the time to gather information in both my professional and personal life. For business I need to do research on companies and individuals to verify there information they provided in a loan application (employment, business and so on.) In my personal life I use to to research various topics I am interested in. For the most part I narrow my searches down to specific key words in the advanced search section of the web search engines to weed out garbage. The internet for me is a valuable tool and much better than the old days when I had to rely on printed publications and take myself down to the library to find out what I needed to know.

I use internet a lot because I need it for my work. Internet is a very useful and rich source of information. It is very true that not all information on the internet is trustful. there is a lot of scrap. I wish this kind of information could be deleted. The only way to make a selection between true and false is to check the site. An institute or a college will always give trustful information. Another condition to find interesting, true, and trustful information is to know how to search. But this is another story.

Hello codris, the great thing about the internet is you can use it for almost everything, including getting information. Unfortunately the downside is that you may end up with false information or things that you don't want like you said. I use the internet for all types of information all the time. Whether it is guides for my games or how to do things or stuff for school.
