This technology also allows people to communicate with one another either through email, instant messaging, or verbal chat.Telephone lines and coaxial cable make these connections possible.The area of Internet has changed this dramatically.Email and social networking such as Facebook, Twitter and MSN to name a few have created online communities which are global in scale and they have fostered the communication between people and countries that we would not have thought possible in the not too distant past.I believe that the internet operates fairly well depending on the type of connection you chose to have.For instance a dial up connection isn't as reliable as say a cable or a T1 or T3 connection.Before the invention of the internet, not too many years ago, communication was possible only by phone or mail, which entailed time and expenses.
In recent decades the rapid advance of the technology has made the communication between people much easier and faster.
It also provides me with education through sites that have been developed either by companies or people such as college professors that provide you with the information you wish to gain. I believe it is good if you use the internet I ways which I have previously stated.
I believe it is bad for reasons such as hackers breaking in to people's personal information and corrupting computers with tools such as viruses.
In addition to this, if people spend most of their leisure time online and not mixing with their neighbourhoods, this would not only have negative effects on local communities, but also would lead to feeling of isolation for the individuals who do not have a real person to turn to in times of need.
To sum up, it can be said that the Internet has without no doubt been beneficial to communication, but we should not underestimate its potential negative effects on social interaction in our societies.
