One press of a button on your laptop can show you another world. Internet makes many of changes at several of scopes, such as obtainig credible sourses and developing huge range of commissinons (Wellman, 2002). For example, the high commission of developing the transportation, education, tourism, and presenting the civilization from country to another country (Wellman, 2002). Nowadays, the internet is already a part of our society (Wellman, 2002). In the 1970s, an international network of networks had been created and then computers, telephone lines, and radio networks had finally started working (Poole, & Schuyler, & Senft, 1999). After these developments, would human’s life be completely transformed? Even though there are different levels of technology around the world, Wellman mentions the levels do not matter about the Internet’s impact on both societies and individuals today (Wellman, 2002). The Internet will make the world closer in business, communication and education.
First of all, there are many ways that will improve business by Internet and the technology. Internet can lead businessman or businesswomen to communicate with their workers easily. As well as it can help people to find a great business. Internet in these days is very important for many people, notably businessman or businesswoman. However, that is significant for a lot of other, such as people who do not have enough money to travel to find new businesses and featured for many of them. What has the Internet developed in our business? Is not too hard to answer this question if we look at the development of ordering, accounting, selling, advertising, and managing (Michal, 1997). Businessman or businesswomen can easily see themselves only as consumers whose participation is limited to purchasing decision that together add up to a market force pushing one way or another to develop their business (Zittrain, 2008). In short, the Internet has encouraged people to develop their businesses in easy way.
Second, people who usually using the Internet are more likely to use the Internet in a variety of social activities and to communicate with friends and family members (Wellman, 2002). The presence of the Internet is important in many things, such as access to resources, social interaction, and communication to local community and outside community (Wellman, 2002). People these days are traveling and mostly of people are studying outside of their own countries in order to achieving at least one of their dreams. At the same time, they always like to have a connection with their friends and families. They are lucky because they are in the era of globalization, developed Internet and the evolution in this world of technology day by day. Now, everyday we hear about a new device of specializing in telecommunications, such as iPhones, Galaxy, etc and it is clearly connected to the Internet server. Most people who use the internet say that the Internet has increase their communication between family members and friends as well as it has a unique quality as a communication channel and the ability to easily connect with others who has similar interest, values, and beliefs. (John, & Katelyn, & McKenna, 2004).
Third, there are many reasons that help to say online education is great in someway, such as accessible 24 hours and student-centered teaching. The Internet leads students to study whenever and wherever they want (Online Education Database, 2012). For example, they can travel for their pleasures or businesses and they do not need to focus on their fixed schedules like they should attend their classes on time. Student-centered teaching means everyone has his or her own way to study (Alan, 2009). For instance, some people are more likely to learn online and everyone has his or her owns reasons. Moreover, children can no longer lie to their parents about their home works and grades because their schools post those in their web pages and the parents are able to figure out those through the Internet (Michal, 1997). Many students find that they have learned about each other by the Internet also they can reach each other by, emailing and chatting (Wellman, 2002). Students now have great opportunities to study easier more than students before but students in future will have more opportunities to study more easily.
Some people might say that the Internet will not make the world closer. It is not closely with each other. For example, when they speak to each other on Skype or chat on Facebook they are not close enough to each other. Also, It might have high possible to increase social and psychological problems (Kimberly, 1999). As well as the Internet can affect decline of ethical people. It is showing many negative subjects. For example, porno websites, which are showing naked bodies, are becoming normal to see by many people (Muhammad, 1999). Of course misinformation is developed a lot on Internet (Anne, 2002). Therefore, some people use the Internet as a force to falsify many topics. For example, some websites are present that shows false information about religions, culture and medicine (Anne, 2002). Using Internet incorrectly causes some disadvantages to people such as losing time or having social and psychological problems (Kimberly, 1999). Spending a huge time by using Internet means exactly people waste their time. For instance, many people are using their much time for watching YouTube and looking at Facebook constantly (CNN, 2009) Lots of people especially in Canada check their Facebook every hour (Education, 2009). Also, Internet can cause people to have social serious issues. For example, many people around the world get isolation by people who can use Internet a lot and the isolated people eventually lose their social abilities. For example, they spend much time connecting with each other by texting instead of connecting face to face. Therefore, isolation might cause a psychological problem like depression.
However, it is not close to each other but at least they have a way to talk freely and with out pay any money. People should control and solve these problems especially for our new upcoming generations. Also, people who writing false information on the Internet about culture and religious need to solve their problems because that means the exactly meaning of psychological problems (Anne, 2002). Isolation problems are not coming from the Internet only. Many people have those problems with out any effect of Internet. The development of business, education, communication, and civilization are explaining the huge of range benefits we got of the Internet. People spend too much time on the Internet should reschedule their times to avoid social and psychological problems (Kimberly, 1999).
To sum up, the Internet had improved our lives in businesses, communication with others, and education. Nowadays, we live with huge growth of technology and anything people want can get it easily by Internet. When we think about how much has the Internet changed in our society, we can look closely at the development for lots of things, such as business, education, communication, civilization, and commission. This shows that the Internet helps to develop our globalization more and more. Also, it explains how the Internet can be one of the biggest helpful services we have in our civilizations. Internet is a helpful and powerful force for doing our work but it can be detrimental, such as a decrease of ethics, an increase of misinformation and sometimes a waste of time. The Internet might be caused some problems, such as social, psychological, and isolation. However, to avoid those problems people should reschedule their times and think about it more seriously before their problems evolve.
