Today the internet has make life easier.We have to admit that the Internet is the greatest invention in the 20th century. In fact, today our global communication is functioning based on the Internet as it transmits all kinds of information. Certainly, teenagers compose a major group of the Internet users as they research for papers, chat with friends, read e-mails, and so on. Obviously, we use the Internet because we need it. We need the quick access to information and knowledge. We need the convenience that the cyberspace offers. We can use email, Skype, and MSN to communicate with friends for free. Of course there are much more thing that we can do through the Internet. . All what we got from the Internet can be conclude in a word, convenience. And the convenience is stronger enough to surpass all the cons .

Yes, the Internet is very convenient. But this doesn't even answer the question of whether it has a good influence on teenagers or not. Convenience means access to much more messy stuff, like porn and online gambling to name a couple. The amount of this within the internet is enormous, and CONVENIENT enough to find. The objectification of women and poor responsibility with money in the teenager's life are the direct problems to the CONVENIENCE of finding this on the web. All what we got from the Internet can be concluded in a word, convenience. And the convenience is stronger enough to surpass all the pros.

Internet is not only about downloading blue films. I strongly disagree with you or you do not the other advantages of the internet .It has not only rendered the world as a global village but it has also help a lot in educating the poor population of the planet at cheaper rate .One must be be pessimistic like you.I agree to disagree with you.

With the way you've approached this argument, I feel you might have accidentally put teenagers. The internet has good uses, but because the title is if it has a good influence on teenagers, I advance my previous argument. So I agree to the disagreement.

I think when you say influence, Internet has a bad influence on teenagers nowadays. teenagers nowadays, tend to misuse the Internet to watch pornography,and surf the web many other purposes to fulfil their inquisitive minds.
