We are going to point out these issuesIn most recent time we cannot deny the importance of internet to learn and to know the things from all around the world. . should come forward to avail the service at every youth’s home.

You can pay your bills by the click of a button or even buy almost anything without even leaving the house. The Internet enables one to find information any time of day. On the other hand. the accessibility of pornography and false information serve as negative effects. the advertising on the Internet can become annoying. For Instance pop-ups delay what you are doing and most of the times are about information that does not even apply to you.Conclusion The Internet has forever changed the world in both positive and negative ways. Young children also benefit from the Internet because there are so many websites geared to learning for them. With the invention of the Internet the world was forever changed in both good a bad ways. The Internet today is in many ways seen as an essential to life. . One positive that has resulted from the Internet is the fact that you are always able to access research information anytime of the day or night. Besides research information there also is daily local and world news information. including young children. some negative things have also come along with it. inappropriate content such as pornography is available to anyone. One of the worst results from the Internet is. as well as provides convenience with regard to such activities as paying bills. school and home. Many positive results have come from the invention of the Internet. Frustration from advertising has also increased with the Internet. and also weather. which can lead to lots of confusion. The Internet has every kind of information that you could possibly want. Convenience has also been another benefit from the Internet. there is everything from how-to be to high level medical research information. Another negative effect of the Internet is that false information can also be found. Not everything that has resulted from the Internet has been positive. It is used in the workplace. Today the internet is part of our daily life and we must learn to ovoid the negatives so we can enjoy the positives to their full extent. And it’s our responsibility to make sure that internet stays for good purpose rather than hampering our youth or our moral values.
