The internet has revolutionized the way people lead their lives. When it was developed back in the 80s, not even its creators probably could have identified the impact that this invention would have on the world and on the people who live in it. Today, the internet has become so influential and so widespread and ingrained in people’s lives that the time we live in has been named after it ‘the digital age’.

The benefits
The internet has its own benefits and its own follies of course, just like anything else. One would have to be blind to not see the immense benefits and positive impact that the internet has had on the lives of people around the world. It is now possible to never lose touch with friends and family even if they live thousands of miles away, it is possible to get live update of news events happening on the other side of the world in the matter of seconds and it is possible to get any task done with a few swipes of the finger without ever having to leave the comfort of our homes, all thanks to the glorious invention called the internet.

The pitfalls
Of course, with all its glory, one has to be aware about the pitfalls of this ever powerful invention too. The fact that the internet has such a deep reach in the world now can cause all sorts of problems. From criminals being able to track your movements to fake news that can create civil unrest, the internet has been known to be the cause of as many ills as good as well. All one has to do is use this responsibility wisely as the famous Spiderman quote goes “with great power comes great responsibility”.
