No right? Understanding the importance and value of internet in our lives is very crucial. And to use it in the best way we can, we need to stop misusing it and cease our wrong intentions to it. In these Coronavirus times, the internet has been the beats of our hearts and has given us the ability to continue on with life. It would have been almost impossible to continue our lives without the internet.
Where the internet is very useful for the world it has some misuses as well.
One of the major misuses of the internet is wasting time on applications like Facebook, Instagram, or related items. People have been spending hours without realizing that they have lost so much of their time that they can utilize in useful purposes. Teenagers who get addicted to using Facebook and other social media handles too find it very difficult to spare time for their studies. They also come across some irrelevant material not suitable for their age
The extreme use of the internet causes severe health damage to individuals as well. They cannot eat well, cannot sleep well, and cannot concentrate on their activities.
There have been at least millions and trillions of cybercrime cases that have caused huge amounts of harm to people and society. This is the negative side of internet. We need to be aware of cyber-attacks and keep our data and computers protected.
Knowing that internet has become a vital and indispensable part of our lives, without internet our lives are incomplete, therefore we should not be misusing it for personal reasons or any other use. Always use it effectively for the betterment of yourselves and other people.
The Internet is becoming the town square for the global village of tomorrow. -Bill Gates
