The Internet allowed the individual unprecedented freedom to search for anything it wanted to know, this was a noteworthy accomplishment. Along with good stuff there is always a negative outcome. Within the last two decades, every year an array of countries were rapidly connected to the Internet. It quickly became a major demographic phenomenon as more and more people became accessible to the Internet. It gave birth to a new kind of problem, a cyber one. All sorts of viruses were spread in the cyber world by computer frats and geeks whom called themselves hackers. Also, many people launched porn sites and blind date sites where strangers met online and hook-up. Since the creation of the Internet, our generation has been living in a rapidly changing world.
