The internet was intentionally created to connect people with all of human knowledge. Not with other people. This was a side effect. And it has become a major (commercial) aspect of the internet.
How you use those gaps that occur when inventions are used for different things than what they were invented for, is basically up to you, if the options are fully functional opposites.
The internet (or probably is the World Wide Web the better term here) offers you to connect with people and with the endless, lifeless entertainment on unemotional servers. Still, not what you should judge the WWW for. It's just a side effect.
The internet was created to spread knowledge not rumors. The internet was created to share love and make all human beings a whole but instead it shares hate and because of this more and more of us are becoming alone, because we find out things we don't want to find out. People hide behind a computer screen making hate comments and outing people down leaving them to suicide. The internet has brung us together in some aspects but it has also torn us art
