Uses and abuses of Internet
Internet is the way of intercommunication network. It is not only a communication network but also the most widely spread communication technology of the world. It can be termed as Aladin’s magic lamp in the sphere of modern era.
Internet is a tool that can link up all the people around the world. It brings us a lot of convenience. But at the same time it can be described as a weapon to destroy human’s psychology.
The internet has proved itself very helpful tool in many ways. It has opened a gateway for people. It has made impossible task possible for us to communicate with people from the other side of the world. At the same time, it allows us to meet new people. It discovers new places even though we are not there.
While maximum people consider it as a blessing on the other hand nowadays many others regard it as a curse because like everything else in the world the internet has a good and a bad side to it.
One of the main reasons that many people blame it is that everything is very easy here. One can get the information whatever s/he likes. It has no sense to differentiate the good and evil information. In fact it has no censorship sense.
As a result many things spin out of control. People start using the internet as a method of spying rather than a manner of communication. They abuse this blessing by placing information or data that is unacceptable such as pornography. Some others may use it for fraud or theft. When these actions are committed they are considered as a form of crime.
It is more useful and sometime harmful to the rising young generation. Especially a student no longer needs to spend long hours in libraries searching for a desired piece of information.
A web search engine can provide the necessary material just at a click of a button and no matter which remote corner of the world s/he is in. The Internet will keep you side by side of the latest developments and findings that are happening throughout the world.
Books are essential for study and research. But they may not be available every time. Internet can solve this problem.
Internet also helps marking arrangements for air ticket, hotel booking etc. Internet also helps the patients to get prescription and treatment of the famous doctors at a minimum cost.
We can get important news of home and abroad from it. On the other hand, Internet provides us with the opportunities to enjoy music, movie, sports etc.
In a world, it can be said that Internet plays a very important role in different fields of our life including trade and commerce, education and recreation and above all effective communication.
Internet has some harmful aspects beside its great contribution. Some miscreants spread internet virus and destroy computers to fulfill their illegal ends.
Some computer hackers use internet to hack into other's computer system and cause them harm. The Internet system is, in no way, responsible for these problems.
Everything in this world has both bright and dark sides. We have both the way is opened. It is we who are to decide which way to travel on this information super path and the right of choice depends totally on us.
The information and technology controlling authority has also something to do in this regard. Though the flow of information is open to all, the authority can certainly give a barrier against the uncensored websites.
Overall our positive thinking and well developed sense can raise us clearly a step ahead with the blessing of internet.
Information is considered to be power. Information and communication technology represented by Internet is the sole tool to overall development of the present world. Only then we will be able to keep pace with the advanced world.
