Internet Advantages and Disadvantages
affecting mostly everyone
Many of us are clinging to the Internet than ever before. "Millions of Americans are now a click of the "mouse" away from instantly joining a worldwide computer communication network." (http://library.cqpress.com.ez.lib.jjay.cuny.edu). Some people weren't aware of what the Internet was; so they end up figuring it out by other people. Throughout the years the internet has became popular in many ways. Since the Internet started it has brought more knowledge to people, business opportunities and a numerous amount of entertainment. Its known to be the most powerful tool that most people use.
With a click of a button we can now chat with people that we know or may not know. This has helped some people develop a type of skill that they haven't had before. Some may identify themselves as something they're not. They can always lie about who they are so that the person can't tell of their real personality. Many are afraid of what people may think of them so they want to try and spicing up their identities by being a whole new person. They just want the person to accept them. Well for those that know the person may want to talk about random things and gossip to their friends. With having a chat room you can invite some your friends so that you can talk about mostly anything. At least you wouldn't feel left out.
The advantages of using the Internet communication are that people have the ability to link to others and places in a fast speed. Its not that hard to click a button to access the Internet. Some people may find it hard if it's their first time hearing about it and someone would have to show them the ropes of how its used. You can join groups and meet new associates as well.

The person who has created the Internet was a genius. They was very creative; knowing that everyone would be able to use it and for multiple reasons. The expansion of the Internet has had an enormous impact all over the world. The Internet will never go out of style because we, including me use it all the time for anything. It allows us to have information available, pictures, and products among other things. "Every day the internet continues to provide a new facility, something new that is immensely convenient and that makes life easier for many people."(http://www.articleswave.com) With the Internet I don't know how this world would be; guess back to the stone ages.
The questions that are being asked from many people are, "Can the Internet be regulated?"(http://library.cqpress.com.ez.lib.jjay.cuny.edu), What are the advantages and disadvantages?, Is the Internet useful?, Who developed the Internet?, and there are are many others. To answer the first question, the answer is yes but to a limited extent. Advantages for using the Internet are; you can shop online, chat with people you know, look at information about celebrities, find a job, research and the list goes on. The disadvantages are that there can be risks with talking to random people you don't know, sharing your information with others, theft and the list goes on. The Internet is useful because it helps you to find information about things you need to know for school or a business.
