The Internet is becoming more and more important for nearly everybody as it is one of the newest and most forward-looking media.

Therefore we can wonder how this medium influences us, what impacts it has on our life.

Good sides

First able Life has become drastically smooth and easy over the internet.

the biggest advantage of the internet is the easy access to information. You can get a lot of information on a single topic with the help of a single click. just type in Google what your are looking for

Online reference books and dictionaries replace the way to the bookshop or to the library. In the internet a lot of information is renewed and up to date, unlike more traditional sources.

Moreover you can read the daily newspapers from all over the world, often for free. You do not have to buy them anymore.

Whatever you are looking for, you will find it. Even if you want to have very specific information, you will find it in a short time . traveling information, cooking recipes, all sort of tips, it is all there ready for you on the internet.

Another advantage of the internet is that you can join a community.

You can create new social contacts all over the world, which you could not do so easily without the internet.

There are no time and place limitations and there are no boundaries. You can chat with people in Australia, in Colombia, In germany, or in Canada all the same.

For example social networking sites, such as Twitter or Facebook currently connect more than 7 million people.

Additionally in my opinion the e-mail has replaced the traditional letter. You do not have to buy stamps anymore and it is much faster and also for free.

This advantage also applies to other things. For example while in the previous years seeking for a job required several visits to the offices and companies and interviews, these days all what is required is an email.

The most interesting aspect of the internet influencing our daily lives is the factor of entertainment. Entertainment no longer demands your money or expense, today you can just log on the internet in your free time and get involved talking to people of similar interests, or watch videos on youtube or daily motion, movies or even play online games.

However internet also influences our life in a bad way.

Because of the so many opportunities on the internet It has become an addiction for some people.

the Internet does present the danger of personal isolation. Spending time on the Internet, exacerbates loneliness, although it does seem to alleviate it at first. We cannot forget the importance of in-person human relationships.

Futrthermore, While chatting in the internet you are frequently using abbreviations, uncompleted sentences and so on. This leads to speaking and writing disabilities in everyday life.

So while The internet has a huge positive influence in our life we still have to be careful.
