will talk about the notion of progress.

The idea of ​​progress can be defined as an improvement, a development or a change, a technical, scientific or social progress that contributes to making the world a better place.

Today, we can not imagine without technological advances such as cars, microwaves, cell phones, computers and televisions. Especially in the field of computing, the Internet has revolutionized our means of communication.

However, what effect do these "advances" have on our society? Does it have a positive effect on the way we live?

the idea of ​​progress is still a debate between those who consider that it is beneficial and those for whom it is harmful.

So, I suggest thinking about the following question: should we be afraid of progress?

And does the internet bring people closer or does it alienate us?

Technology has made a lot of things possible, especially in communication.

To explain, I will present an article entitled « Facebook reaches has now reached more than one billion users »

Facebook is a social network used all over the world. Facebook announced that it has now reached more than one billion users,

One of the reasons for such success is that Facebook allows you to connect to different people from all over the world. This gives you the opportunity to learn about the culture of other countries.

Talking with people becomes extremely simple thanks to blogs, forums, social networks and software like Skype ...

In countries without freedom or in conflict zones, it is a way for people to stay in touch with the rest of the world. It helps to keep freedom of expression.

Nevertheless, an article entitled "The dangers of the Internet" studied in class, explains the various dangers of the Internet.

First of all, the internet is addictive for some people,

Internet is a useful tool, but it becomes dangerous if you start to waste your precious time.

With social networks, you can talk with a lot of people. But some people use fake profiles.

It may be to insult or harass someone they do not like. Many people, especially teenagers, have become depressed or suicidal after being harassed on Facebook.

Or people can get your personal information. It is strongly recommended that you do not publicly share your personal information. Many people tell their life on the internet without precaution

another, you have a lot of friends you do not really know in real life. It isolates you from reality. It reduces or eliminates the face-to-face relationship.

Finally, on Wikipedia, which seems a serious site, you will sometimes find false information. For example, another website says that Michael Jackson is still alive!

With social networks, false information can also circulate very quickly.

Not to mention large commercial companies that use the Internet to influence their customers.
