  • Yes, Internet has brought people together.

    The internet has brought people closer together in many ways. Of course, we are now able to chat or make friends with people from different parts of the world, but it's also used in a larger aspect. With the development of the new Ford plant in Chongqing, Ford employees rely on internet everyday to submit floor plans, weekly updates, financial profit and many more things to supervisors back home. Also, instead of the supervisors flying thousands of miles to visit, they simply click the call button on Skype of FaceTime and they can personally sit in on important meetings. In this way, the new Ford plant and the employees that work their are brought closer together with the headquarters and supervisors in America. Also, locally, though Internet does have downfalls such as cyber bullying, I do agree that the bullying would have happened either way. However, many high school kids are involved in online gaming groups such as League of Legends, where they can all play together online. This brings groups of kids closer together as friends since they share the common interest. Also, with the development of social media and instant messaging, we can just send a quick message to a friend and ask if they want to go shopping or get ice cream. We don't have to get out our pens and write letters, so they communication becomes easier and quicker and so people can more easily make plans and talk.
    Having this form of communication definitely brings us together as local communities and on a global basis.

  • Yes the internet brings the global community together OS

    Looking specifically at the global community, the internet makes a huge difference in the way that the global community connects. It allows for the sharing of ideas, experiences, cultures, and backgrounds in a way that nothing else can. This allows people from all over the world to understand others around them and pull the global community together. The internet makes the world a smaller place, therefore, bringing it closer.

  • Yes, the Internet brings us closer

    The Internet plays a major role in bringing people closer together, even writing on this website, I would need the Internet to not only allow me to express my opinion but also look at what other people thinks about this topic. The Internet brings people closer together in various ways. Take a recent event for example, the outbreak and spread of Ebola has shocked the world and has raised a lot of awareness on preventing the spread of this disease. Through the Internet, people can go and search about the spreading trend of Ebola or any news related to the disease and gain some knowledge of the prevention of Ebola. The Internet also brings people closer by spreading out information on how to prevent or what are the symptoms of getting Ebola, therefore allow people to work together to try and contain the spread of Ebola. In addition, information about volunteer opportunities or aids that are needed are posted online for anyone to access, people can donate money to purchase medical equipment or invest into researching and developing cure or vaccine or needed resources through the Internet and people could get first hand information.
    Some people argue that the Internet has worsen gossiping, however, agreeing to Valencia's point of view, gossiping has been there since the invention of Internet, the Internet is just another way of spreading gossip and rumours, but there is no prove to say that the Internet makes gossiping worse. In fact, gossiping happens even without the Internet. Through the Internet, people are allowed to freely express their values and thoughts or communicate with your friends and family even if you are far apart from them. People tend to find where they belong in the community through sharing interests or values on the Internet which ultimately brings people closer together

  • Yes, the Internet Brings People Closer VJ

    To determine my answer, I looked at the negative and positive effects of the Internet as a math problem. In the end, when everything is factored in, the Internet bring more people together on a bigger scale.
    Globally, there is no doubt that people are brought together on the Internet. I can connect with friends in different cities, countries, and continents. The Internet removes the obligation to be friends based on geography or lack of options. On the Internet, you choose to talk to people that share interests, which in turn grows many international sub-communities.
    On a more local level, it enables people to connect with friends and family, and in that way, brings the community closer. In regards to online gossip and slander, in any community (especially a small town) there is a rumor mill. Before the adoption of Internet, there was gossip, and gossip will always exist. The Internet just provides another means of spreading such information. Also, gossip is not necessarily worse on the Internet, and even if it is in some cases, it is just as easy for people to say these things without a computer.
    Overall, the Internet is an overwhelmingly positive invention, and people have been brought closer together because of it. For every one negative attribute, the Internet boasts two positive ones.

  • Yes, the Internet brings us closer together

    The Internet bring us together globally and locally. The Internet lets us talk with our friends and family from across the world and see what is going on in their lives. The gossip is still going to be there if the Internet is being used or not. In the article 'In Small Towns, Gossip Moves to the Web, and Turns Vicious' they say " everybody knows everybody's business - and if they do not, they feel free to offer an educated guess." The point is the Internet lets us Facetime, Skype, iMessage, WeChat, and more if we use it appropriately. Yes, the Internet can spread drama but that is not the Internet that is pulling us apart it is the person behind the screen that is doing that job. -J.J.

    In local communities, there are more negative effects of the Internet, like the spread of gossip. However, it is pertinent to realize that gossip has and will spread with or without the help of Wi-fi connection. Furthermore, said gossip is not necessarily "worse" on the Internet. Even if it was, the amount of people brought together by the Internet far outweighs the people that are pulled apart because of it.

  • Yes yes it does

    We have so many options. We have skype through which we can talk to people face to face. We have email through which we can do chit chat. I completely agree that internet brings people together. But if we misuse it it will surely not. So try to use it properly.

  • Yes, the internet brings people together.

    With the invention of the Internet people can come together like never before. Previously it was unfathomable for you to be able to talk to people from multiple countries around the world for essentially free. Now this occurs every single day. The Internet has in turn made people much more accessible.

  • Yes, The Internet Brings People Closer

    Although there have been many technological advances in communication in the past 100 years, the internet has brought people together like never before by allowing each individual to communicate instantly with anyone else in the world and post their thoughts and feelings so anyone can see them and respond. TV and radio are restricted access so anyone cannot just share their opinion, and in order to send a letter or make a phone call, you have to know someone in advance. Only with the internet can someone reach out to anyone willing to listen to them and share anything they choose to share.

  • No, the internet allows deception and miscommunication to proliferate (SY)

    The internet is a wonderful tool in society, speeding up communication of information. However, it also leads to more gossip spreading, more incorrect information transferred, and more deception.
    Posts on the internet seem to have a more permanent presence as they are there for everyone to see, like a giant bulletin on a tack board that everyone sees. Cyber bullying has used this presence as a weapon, as mocking posts can be seen by anyone and stay on the website for quite a while. Through the creation of fake accounts, one can commit such terrible actions anomyously. This makes cyber bullying easier to commit and harder to fight, as it is easier to be anonymous on the internet that anywhere else. And don't think this is confined only to schools; it happens in adult communities too, especially in smaller towns where communities are more tightly knit and gossip runs rampant. Some will argue that gossip and the like happen even without the internet. However, the internet augments its effect by making it spread faster than ever before, like a pouring gasoline on a fire. As my english teacher loves to say, "Pick you poison."
    As for expressing ideas freely on the internet, this is not always a good thing. ISIS had recruited many foreign fighters over social networks such as Facebook or Twitter. They has either pulled in their fellow radicals or tricked others into believing in their cause. Thanks to the "free idea" spreading, ISIS can recruit those who really never wanted to join their cause. Faking or changing information is easy on the internet. Take Wikipedia for instance. For one hour, Wikipedia said the Holocaust was a lie made up by Jews so Germans would be scorned world-wide. Like a knife, the internet has many uses, some productive and some destructive. Clearly, the internet helped tear society apart much more than it has brought it together.
