I am going to talk about the idea of progress.

First of all I would like to give a definition of this notion: The idea of progress can be defined as an improvement, a development or a change – a technical, scientific or social advance which contributes to making the world a better place.

This year in class we studied several documents about the idea of progress. I will talk about :

• the web hotest platform

• working from home

• thinks before you click

Regarding this theme, the main question can be the following : How has the internet changed today’s world?

The first document I have chosen is a article who talk about Facebook. FB was created by Mark Zuckimberg in 2004. FB is usefull for people because thanks to it we can keep on touch with friend or family, we can share video, picture, learn more about someone we meet, to have fun ... it’s also usefull for companies because they are able to get information about someone they want to hire or promote and they can also know what people like or dislike that is to say adapt them products and services to the demand. We can say that social network, more in particular Facebook has change our life. It’s a better way of communication.

The second document is a tesmoty of Marianne Power. She stresses the fact that people are doing whatever with the internet. Nowadays adult are reacting like children they spend more time in game than doing more adult things. They are buying someting they don’t really need. People are anonymous so they think that what they say has no consequenses. One exemple of ridiculous things they do is bulling. One other thing she say is that people throwing up serious and real relationship just because they can log on on a site of dating online. Because of the wrong use of the internet, people are become child-like, uninhibited,impulsive and narcistic.

To conclude we can say thay internet changed our life. It’s more eseaer to communicate with people whether it is far or near to us. It allow people to work in there house. But internet have also changed our personality. We become more bad, more evil than before.
