    Technology has changed the way we communicate in so many ways. It has also changed the way people conduct business, and the manner we conduct our personal and social lives. We can easily text, talk and email through a link to anyone all over the world. In fact, it is now possible to visit any part of the world virtually. On the other hand, internet communication has created numerous problems that appear to increase as the technology advances. The list of advantages and disadvantages of internet communication can be endless, it all depends on the track you choose to it.
    So what are the advantages and disadvantages of internet communication? Advantages include time and money savings, This is because it is much cheaper and quicker to transfer information around. It also becomes faster and efficient to contact a business partner or a relative. We can now communicate with anyone around the world through emails and text messages instantly. Another advantage is the creation of new and exciting jobs. Take a look at system analysts, computer programmers, web designers, etc. Internet has also created more business opportunities allowing customers to contact them 24/7. While internet communication poses great advantages, it also has it's own drawbacks. One major disadvantage that we are facing right now is about privacy. From email hacking to phone signal interceptions, more and more people are now troubled about their private information. Even though the internet has improved many sectors, it has resulted in job unemployment through outsourcing, downsizing, and redundancies. For example, a factory can replace skilled personnel with robots which can work faster and for longer hours. These are just some advantages and disadvantages. Overall, although the internet has definitely made our lives better, it also has the power to cause chaos. Its impact on a society or a company is mostly felt by the choices we make while using it. But with wise use, we can be able to reap the benefits, and avoid many of its disadvantages.
     
  3. We're in 20th century, I believe that internet has so much help. We must be responsible on using it. It i very useful, time saver and easier to use. Internet and gadgets are not only for the millennial but our elders are still coping up. It's a friend tool for communication with our loved ones. But of course we have to be responsible, learn to limit it and don't forget to go back to traditional. ;););)

    Internet is the global computer network consisting of other interconnected networks that provides communication facilities as well as information to the users making use of certain protocols. We live in a century where the influence of the internet has spread to each and every country. The internet is easily accessible to people of all ages and that comes with advantages as well as disadvantages.

    The internet is very helpful since it helps people from all over the world to easily communicate to one another. It has now been made possible for you to communicate with people from different continents while seeing them during the whole conversation. Information has also been passed from different parts of the world to others using media platforms such as social media sites. This has made the world a global village making it easy to pass information within a very short span of time.

    Internet also comes with disadvantages that make various people in the society strongly oppose it. To begin with, it comes with a lot of moral degradation if not handled in the right way. It is easily accessed by people of all ages and if parents do not follow up on their children, they might end up getting involved in criminal activities through the internet. The internet also comes along with some laziness where some people stay glued to their laptops for the whole day keeping in touch with friends and looking for updates in the entertainment industry.

    The internet thus has both advantages and disadvantages and the nature of the effects depends on how you decide to use it and how you monitor its use in your house especially by those who are underage.

    In today's advancement of modern technology, Internet is almost available anywhere and anytime. Most of the cellular subscribers nowadays offers free limited MB of Internet capacity for you to browse and check any contents in the Internet. Internet (with capital I) means network of computers around the world publicly. When you internet (small i) it means that network of computers inside a private network only, so don't confuse between the two. :)

    Internet may have several advantages and disadvantages. It depends upon how you use it and how you are careful enough in accessing different site. Be very cautious in accessing sites because some are very dangerous in your computer that might access your personal and sensitive about yourself.

    One advantage is you can search related topics and information in your research and in your study. There are so much information out there that might be very helpful in your studies.

    I think using internet has more advantages then disadvantages. First of all, Internet provides access to a lot of information. Some of them are very useful in your job other helps in your hobby. Searching the net with Google, you can find everything you want. You can also do shopping using Internet. Of course it has no sense to buying a roll, but if you need something inaccessible, you will be able to buy it in Internet shop. You need only to select what you want, fill in some forms and click ok. In a few days you will get what you have ordered directly to your home, without going anywhere. You can pay with your credit card, pay postman when you get the package, or transfer money from your bank account. Nowadays almost every bigger bank offers transferring money with Internet.

You cant use internet using a computer/desktop, Laptop or even a smart phone that you can use every where.

    Disadvantage - Internet can be source of cyber crime by putting a personal information on the internet you can be a victim of identity theft, fraud , hacking and you can be a victim of cyber bullying. And internet has a lot of adult content that inappropriate to access by minor using their mobile phones and can't monitor by their parents and also there are many online/offline games that is addictive that will affect your health and social life.

    By using internet you need to be aware and cautious on putting any personal information on any website that you are not familiar , you need to be aware what link you will click. You can install an application that will block a website that has an adult content. Be wise while using the internet.

    The Internet is both good and bad and like any source of information, entertainment or services must be understood and used responsibly.

    The Internet is good in that it is a readily available source of information, news, resources and material for an endless variety of topics, subjects and interests. You can find television shows and movies to view, educational programs for children, and video tutorials or written “how-to” guides to provide instructions on how to start, complete or trouble-shoot any task you may need assistance with. If you need recipes, dictionaries, a thesaurus, translator or currency converter, the Internet has you covered. You can even buy or sell your own new or second-hand goods using various Internet sites and services.

    If you are immobile or infirm the Internet is a resource that can help you to remain independent by giving you the ability to order and have delivered directly to your home just about anything you may need. The Internet even serves as a directory of service providers so that hair dressers, pet groomers, grocery stores and restaurants can come directly to you. For those who are not immobile or infirm, but simply short on time and energy, these same resources and services can be helpful and provide considerable relief from the pressure and stress of a busy life with a full schedule.

    The bad side of the Internet is as readily available as the good and not always easy to identify. Information and content can be populated by anyone and is not always accurate or factual. It is important that news, historical facts, statistics and any information you find on the Internet is only believed and trusted if you have verified that it comes from a reputable source. You must also take care not to share your personal information on sites that do not have appropriate levels of security and protection for consumers.

    Parental controls and restrictions are also important if you’d prefer that your children or other household members not have access to pornography, specific sites or movies and games with content you have not approved.

    Social Media applications and sites are wonderful tools for keeping in touch with friends and family, dating, posting reviews and receiving recommendations. Those same applications and sites can also be used for criminal activity such as stalking, unpleasant exchanges such as bullying or shaming and for trolling by those who may take pleasure from inciting arguments and debate.

    The Internet is a truly amazing tool and resource when used responsibly and with integrity. Understanding the many ways the Internet can be used for both good and bad is your best protection and defense as you access all of the options available to you on the information superhighway.
