In the past, people don"t use the internet but now we people are living in the modern days. We are so dependent on the internet that we didn"t know that internet is harmful and we spend more time on the internet than our family. We spend so much time on social media example like Facebook, Instagram etc. But do you know that the internet brings so much harm that it could cause deaths through the social media? Like cyberbullying?

Internet does not bring harm to people if they use it wisely and responsibly.People spend most of their time surfing the Internet and does not manage their time properly.Internet can give informations to people who read online news or for their preferences and and also there are educational games rather than watching the television for the whole day.

Internet is able to cause cyber bullying especially on the Facebook or other social medias. Have you heard of Amanda Todd?
She had committed suicide on the October 10, 2012. Yes, she is a victim of cyber bullying. she is only 15 years old that period of time and another victim of cyber bullying is Ryan Halligan. He committed suicide at the age of 13. Ryan got bullied just because of his learning disorder. He got bullied mostly through the social media, Facebook. So, the internet cause more harm than good as it cause deaths of many people.

Some Internet users use Internet the wrong way.Some of them are irresponsible and use Internet to bully people.By doing that,it gives Internet a bad name.Cyberbullying can be avoided if the Internet users use it properly and in a good way.Therefore Internet does not bring more harm than good.

People have created online shop on the internet. Which is capable of scamming people. Yes, some online shops doesn't scam. But do you think is safe to give yours personal details to online shops? By giving personal details online, the owners of the shops is capable of threatening you or blackmailing. As giving personal details, can cause a risk to you or others. this bring harms to people as they might get scammed and lose money.

Con

Online shop is useful for the Internet users who wants to shop online.It can help them to buy their things online rather than going to the shop itself.However, there are laws protecting you from websites that just sell on your information, but if you give personal information out without being sure that it will be properly used you only have yourself to blame.
