Modern life cannot be imagined without the Internet. So, lots of people do appreciate it, while others think that it is the biggest evil of the time. Anyway, in the essay I would like to look upon this issue.
In my opinion, the Internet is of high importance and can be very useful. Firstly, it gives people an access to various kinds of information from everywhere. As the result, you do not have to go to a library to read a book or watch a film at the cinema. It is even possible to travel through the world using panoramic view on Google Maps. Secondly, the World Wide Web unites people all over the world. You can meet a person from the UK or Spain online, for example, and such social interactions can greatly improve your speaking skills if you are fond of learning foreign languages.
However, some people criticize the Internet a lot. They claim that people often come across fake news and see large amount of disturbing advertisements visiting different sites.
Nevertheless, I cannot agree with the opponents’ opinion. The point is that it is your responsibility to avoid fake news. It means that you should get information about different events and accidents from popular and reliable sources like BBC news or CNN sites. Moreover, there are useful utilities such as Ad Blocker which can ban online advertisement, especially the ones which contain offensive content.
To sum up, though the theme of using the Internet is still rather controversial, I strongly believe that it greatly helps us in our everyday life, that is why we like spending time online.
