In the last few years the Internet has become more and more embedded in our daily life. The tradition of the Internet started in the early nineties. Beginning with some poorly styled websites with no real information for the mainstream people, new services like web-based mail clients, namely web.de, gmx.de etc., dictionaries, tools like Wikipedia and digital newspapers made the internet to a common source of many useful tools and information. In fact the conquest of the internet does not stop yet. Every day new techniques like TV through the Internet are developed to make life easier.
Therefore the Internet has many advantages. The Internet is not only an useful instrument to gather the latest news very efficient, you can also communicate through the internet very easy. Not only via e-mails, but also chats allow us to twitter with friends and family. As already said, you can use it as a source of knowledge to inform you about a certain topic, too. In online-forums you can even ask other people, how the solution of a specific problem might be.
These arguments show only one part of the functionalities and usefulness of the internet. On the contrary the Internet has many disadvantages, too. Firstly it is an anonymous. This means that everyone can publish news, knowledge and other information, even though it is completely wrong. In fact you probably need much time to clarify the¬ information you gather in the World Wide Web. Another dangerous point that is often criticized is that especially the youth become often hooked on the internet. If this is the case, they have to be supervised properly.
All in all, it should be obvious that the Internet can be a useful and nearly unlimited tool, but the user has to notice the possibility of manipulations and other disadvantages.
