The internet has created problems through social networking sites as people tend to spend most of their time in the internet instead of going out with their friends and families. Therefore, their relationship with their friends and families will be affected.
Also these social networking sites have created problem for kids as it gives people another avenue for bullying and harassing.

Con

I disagree as the internet brings more good as the internet lets student go online and do their work online without having to meet.When teacher and student are unable to meet they are able to go online to complete their work and teachers may help students if they require assistance in their revision teacher may send the student the steps to do it in their online and help the students in many ways.Therefore,the internet brings more good then harm instead.

Pro

Many people are just addicted to the internet. They can't stop browsing, they are hooked on gaming. Instead of going out for a walk, they tend to sit behind their computers for hours. A sad consequence of the addiction is that they can no longer appreciate a good book or a nice coversation with a friend. By failing to take exercise, they grow fat and unhealthy. Their family life suffers and their only relationships are online. Hence, they cannot cope in the real world.

Con

People can use the internet to buy things.The people who are using the internet are there and it is useful as they can buy online items without going out making it very useful for people who dislike going out to buy things and may just buy it online.Therefore,the internet is good as it helps people who are lazy to contact the people who are selling the product they need and buy it online.

Pro

The internet has made people lazy. They can pay their pay bills online and and shop online, so they do not have to leave their home. Therefore, people tend to stay at home most of time. Also at the same time, the internet is a threat to the eye. Researcher have proven that many people tend to play their handphone for a long period of time which is very harmful to their eye. Hence, the internet brings more harm than good.
