First of all, I think that the Internet brings us many benefits. People can have access to the latest news, weather, traffic, bid-and-asked quotations, etc.
Another important benefit is that the Internet is a great means of communication. A few years ago it was rather difficult to imagine that it would be possible to communicate with people from all around the world. People have the opportunity to communicate with the people from other countries, find out their customs, traditions and even visit each other.
The Internet is like the «knowledge» center of the world. We can find information on almost anything in a number of languages quickly and efficiently. We don’t need to really go to a physical library anymore because everything is online. The Internet is great for learning in the form of e-learning and distance education. This is great not only for children but also for adults.
From the other hand, many questions and difficulties arose with the appearance of the Internet. For example, children got the easy access to the information they are not supposed to read. Also, people’s security and privacy are often violated through steeling and gathering information about people and then selling it. Many banks had to increase their Internet security because of hacking. Children and adults both tend to spend too much time online. Some adults, for example and this leads to a communication breakdown and problems interacting with others (social skills).
