First of all, one must ask. What is the internet? Simply
put, the internet an international network that allows its users to connect and
have access any data available on it. Since its creation, the internet has been
expanding rapidly. And today we use it for almost everything. From chatting,
reading, ordering food, to booking tickets and all kinds of online purchases. In
fact, today the internet is used so much that one may not be able to imagine
life without it.

 

 

               1   Introduction

The
internet has become the most important source through which someone can obtain
or send information and many of other activities. However, the internet has
both a good side and a bad one. For example one of the core advantages the
great use of the internet on almost every field is that it gives loads of data
to us and users like students could utilize the internet for many things, like for
finding materials and also submitting them to their teachers of friends. This
use of the internet I very suitable for students, especially ones that are
involved in IT fields. But there are other fields like the banking world, which
the internet has helped grow by providing new services and ways of transactions
like ”e-Banking” and has also affected negatively because all those transactions
that are now being don through the internet can never be entirely secure.

 

 

1.2   The impact
of internet

Now
days even children use internet for games, videos, cartoons etc., it’s kind of
learning by doing because a 2 or 3 year old child is able to learn how to use
internet, computer, touch screen devices etc. Also if someone interacts with a
computer for the first time he/she will notice that the mouse is to help us to
select what we want, the keyboard helps us to write and through the monitor we
can see what we’re doing so one may be able to navigate, open and close programs,
save data… within hours. So in other words it’s not 1989, so the excuse” I’m
not good with computers” is no longer acceptable.

 

1.3
   Online assignment help

The
other benefit of internet for students is that it can help them with their
assignments. For example if   they find
difficult to write essay or to do homework etc. they have just too surf the net
and it’s done.  So now it’s kind of
unbelievable to work in a project without searching a feedback for that
subject, it helps a lot and makes education easier.

 

  
1.4 Advantages and disadvantages of online education

Online education today is widely spread because of its
convenience. Because in today’s busy life time is of the essence, and online
education makes learning possible at any time in any place, offering us any
information that we might need, which has made it almost necessary for
students. It is also very helpful for students who are physically not capable
of attending lectures. Through it they can learn from anywhere in the world and
it especially benefits those students who want to study in abroad. They can
learn different cultures and gain knowledge of different countries.

According to many studies of Internet users especially
youth have concluded that spending too much time online can adversely affect
their psychological well-being.
Consequently, new technology bring the new lifestyle to people, at the same
time how to take most use of the Internet becomes an urgent issue.
Which, if misused, might undermine the quality of our life and even threaten
the mental health of teenage students.

 

1.5   Transportation

Based on articles, AT&T just this
year has added more than 2 million wireless lines, but just about 1 million
were for humans, the other lines were installed in vehicles. GM, BMW, AUDI, FORD
etc., have teamed up with AT&T to enable LTE in their vehicles.

Everyone thinks that technology has
gone so far but in reality this is just the beginning of LTE-enabled cars, in
the near future they will be able to offer real time information of traffic and
for everything in the vehicle.

 

 

1.6
  Solving
problems of others by the use of internet

With internet now u can help everyone
to solve their problems, there are hundreds of online platforms where you can
post your problem and someone from that field will answer, for example Quora is
one of them where you can ask anything and anyone can answer or give a solution
for your problem. But this method has both a good side and a bad one, the good
one is that there you can learn a lot and businesses can find their target
clients or readers through it, but in other side we will never know if the
answers are correct because everyone can answer and there are many cases when the
answers are not serious or they come from people who do not have the appropriate
qualification.

 

2   E-health

Technology and the internet have also
affected our health in both good and bad ways. The good thing is that it’s
easier to diagnose the disease, to find best hospitals for you and to be cured
in the best way. For example people with heart diseases, diabetes, lung
diseases, liver diseases etc., are now better informed about their condition
and through many new devices that are connected to the internet, their health
can be monitored in real time without the need of staying at a hospital.

There are many more examples of how
the internet has helped our society health wise, but there   are also side effects of the extensive use of
it. The problem is that the devices that we use every day are harming our eyes
and slowly but surely our bad posture during the use of those devices is
heavily harming our spine, because according to a 2012 study from the National
Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys as many as 70% of people spend six or
more hours each day sitting down.

The future of social communications, innovation, mobile technologies, and total
connectivity in our lives

Innovation if forming the future of
communication, based on some researches of a network operator in 2013, 94% of
their users own a mobile, 84% of them use internet on their mobile and 74% of
them use internet every day. Only a low percentage said that they don’t use
their mobile to connect to internet and that percentage is decreasing while the
time passes.

Smartphones are the most used devices
today and through them most people are now able to be on the internet 24/7.
Thus smartphones are now replacing most of our other electronic devices like: MP3s,
alarm clocks, cameras, watches, etc. Smartphones are being used at least three
hours per day, 38% chatting, 35% checking social media, 24% listening to music
and 20% surfing the net. Daily activities are taking up the least time, maximum
ten minutes per day and those statistics are changing every day. The future is
brimming with opportunities, and the future of the Internet has only just
begun.

 

 

 

   4   Privacy
and technology will never be in the same place.

Internet is free, but how are these
sites getting paid? The truth is that we are paying with our identity, for
example when we use Facebook they log everything we do, the pages we like, the
people we interact with, even the words in our status updates, then they take
that information analyze it and assemble a detailed profile of who you are.
They know your habits, your preferences, they can even determine risk tolerance
or sexual orientation, and they sell that information to advertisers. That’s
not a hypothesis. That actually happened to a woman in Tampa. They actually
record which ads we see then partner with firms that monitor what we do in the
real world, and then they just pump us full of ads. This has got to be one of
the most invasive advertising systems ever devised. Facebook can actually
determine who’s the most vulnerable to an ad campaign then up their dosage
until they buy even more. Sure, you can quit Facebook. But good luck escaping
Google. Google doesn’t just track you when you search, their tracking software
is also installed on more than ten million websites, even medical sites, so the
health info you think you’re looking up in private Google’s got a front-row
seat. Every time you write a Gmail, watch a YouTube video, or use Google Maps,
Google collects data about you. We don’t even know the full extent of what Facebook
and Google store, or what they do with that. All we know is that they’re
collecting our data on an unprecedented scale and making billions off of it.
That’s their real business model. When we use these sites, we’re not the
customer, we’re the product. The fact that the sites are free is the problem.
When the web was created, we decided, we would rather have free stuff then pay
for the services we used, as a result, the websites have had to sell ads to make
money. They target ads to us based on our preferences and our behavior online.
And that means we’re under constant surveillance in exchange for these services
that we get “for free”. One in six people on Earth now has a Facebook account,
and they make up twenty percent of all time spent online. That’s 1.6 billion
people whose every move is being tracked by an online big brother that they
chose to live under. For every user they surveil they make just twelve dollars.
Your interests, your personality, your relationships, your privacy, those
things are priceless, but you gave them all away just to avoid paying twelve
dollars. So think about it before you click, like, or visit a page on internet.
