Along the time development, Internet surfing has become a universal matter. Now, no matter where you are, you would see people surfing the net. Is this a good phenomenon? In my point of view, the Internet is important for us, but it has disadvantages as well.
As the proverb goes, every coin has two sides. Network has both advantages and disadvantages. For one thing, our Internet is like a library; you can look up almost anything. It also can help you gather the main information that you want. For the other thing, we can read tons of interesting news online. Whether it is about sports, entertainment, or education, you can read them via the Net. In addition, the Internet network provides us with many good services like Email and instant messengers, which allows us to keep in touch with our close friends. Absolutely, it has many advantages. However, it also has another side.
From personal experience, the network is able to make some people decadent. I know many students who use the Internet to play games and they would easily get addicted to it, which can cause them to neglect school work. Since students are young, most of them lack self-control. I have a friend who was addicted to a popular computer game a few years ago. During that time, he played the game day and night. He completely abandoned his school assignments and at the end, he wasn’t able to get accepted by the colleges that he applied because his grades were too low. As you can see, getting addicted to the Internet or even having Internet can be a very bad thing.
In conclusion, the Internet is good as long as you are able to control yourself. One can find all kinds of entertainments online and you should always try not to get addicted to any of them, because this can cause you to miss many other important things and people in your life.
