Thoughts On The Internet
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

If you are like many people, you spend part of each day online. You check your email, read the headlines, and perhaps check to see what is happening on your favorite social networks. There would be no email or social networks if the Internet did not exist. It is not evil. It is good, and it is making us better.

One reason why it is good is because it can be a valuable resource. People who need information can turn to the Internet. Students might go online to find sources for a research paper or a science project, for example. However, in doing research, it is important to be sure that the information you find is accurate. Many people post information that is not accurate, which can cause problems. If a student uses inaccurate information, it can result in a bad grade. On the other hand, accurate information can help a student get a good grade.

Another reason that the Internet is good is because it helps us stay connected with one another. We can chat on social networks such as Facebook and be connected, even when we are miles apart. Connecting with other people helps us to grow. We can share news with those who are close to us, such as news that we recently published an article online. We can even share the link to the article, allowing others to read it.

Finally, the Internet is good because it gives us a purpose. Those of us who have not succeeded in traditional employment can succeed with a blog. We can succeed and earn some money. Online publishing may even help us to pursue our dreams.

However, though the Internet is not evil, it can cause people to waste time. It is very easy to go online to do a search for something, such as Homer's The Iliad, and then to go from that to searching for recipes, celebrity news, and new television shows on the fall lineup. You may spend an hour or more online, when your single initial search would have taken just minutes. Instead of allowing yourself to give in to the temptation to do other things online, do only what you need to do. If you are checking your email, for example, check it. If you need information, do research, find what you need, and then get busy on what you need to do. Get the business out of the way. Then you will have time for the fun stuff.
