I believe it to be both positive & negative. Positive for the fact that we can get to know people halfway around the world. Negative because we tend to not know our own neighbors. People can be anonymous online & be bolder. I know I am! I write better than I talk where the words tend to be jumbled together. The downside with the anonymous though is that there becomes a whole new level of bullying as well as hackers. What do you think of the impact on our lives?
Internet helps me a lot. Especially messenger apps. Otherwise, I will have to commute 20 times more than I do now.
I got friends in almost the other side of the Earth because of the internet. Learned a lot through YouTube etc.
I think the internet is a great tool, I have met hundreds of people on here over the years.
I would like to think that the Internet has mainly been a net positive in my life. There are some negative people on the Internet, but the nice thing is that there are tools to avoid them for the most part. That, of course, becomes a problem when people use different techniques to circumvent bans or blocks; fortunately, I haven't had that problem for quite a while. ^^
