The Internet… There are different points of view on this matter. Some people say it provides access to the most relevant information whereas others believe it is quite a controversial invention.
As far as I am concerned, the Internet has proven itself a useful thing. To start with, some research-based Internet projects — Wikipedia, for example — can be of great help for a student making a presentation. Moreover, one can use the Internet to stay in touch with people all over the world for free, with the help of text messages and videocalls. In addition, almost all important official documents and queries can now be sent via e-mail, which offers high speed of sending and receiving and, most importantly, an opportunity to automatise the process.
In contrast, there is an opinion that the Internet can be useless from the scientific point of view, time-wasting because a lot of people perceive the Internet as a platform for entertainment content, which can be quite addictive in a way.
Then, such people also admit that there is quite a concentration of rumours and lies and many people get involved in activities that may seem understandable but actually are harmful.
In fact, I cannot completely agree with them since not everyone in the world likes to be serious all the time — so people, even scientists, use the Internet to relieve stress with the help of social networks, videos and other entertainment content, that may have a scientific orientation. Actually, people are constantly working to make the Internet a better place without lies and bad people — there are officially verified news agencies and bloggers.
In conclusion, I would like to state that the Internet is useful in both scientific and entertaining ways because one can always find information on their query and contribute in making the Internet the greatest encyclopedia.
