How Internet has changed our Life
For the past few days I have been thinking about all the ways in which internet has influenced our lives , the ways in which it has made our lives better and more efficient .It has greatly influenced our present lives . There is no doubt about it .
Communication : It has done wonders to reduce the communication barrier between the world . I can imagine the time , around 7 years ago , when I shifted to Lucknow from Jamshedpur , I used to write letters to my friend then wait for more than 2 weeks to get a reply . Today Sending emails is the fastest and most efficient way of communication . No matter how far your friend or relative may be living , it takes just seconds to send an email and the response is quite fast . The instant messenger thing has made it a lot better . Now you can even talk to your friends or relatives , can even see them through a webcam when they are online . It is good way of making friends also . I myself have made a lot of friends all round the country on the net .
Information : Another good feature is the amount of information available on the net . It is like an electronic library at your disposal , just type in Google what your are looking for and …voila…. You have the result . You can get a lot of information on a single topic with the help of a single click . Even virtual teaching and learning is also possible now . What can be better than that .
Reservation , banking : Now Internet can be also used for banking , reservation purposes . You can transfer money from your account , view the balance report etc by just sitting at your home . Even Railway and Airline reservation can be done with the help of a click . Now no need to stand in queues and wait for your turn . Just open the site , click and book and your work is done . Even shopping can be done by sitting at a desktop . Even though it may be unsafe to use credit cards on the net , but it is also one of the most popular feature of the net .
Business : Internet is also used for expanding your business by the help of a website . Now you can target a large variety of consumers from around the world for your business if you have a properly maintained website . Blogging is the trend of the new generation and with the help of your blog , you can share your likes and dislikes with the world .
Misc : Now internet can also be used as a TV , you can watch web cast of Live matches or even various events . Videos , music etc what ever you want it is all here . Now you can even find your Life Partner on the net .
But in spite of this , it has also got some bad effects . also probably made a few of us suffer a sort of addiction. Syndrome is indeed a matter of concern, with symptoms of “distraction”, “withdrawal from surroundings” and “prevailing in a world of no where”. But it also depends on us , how we spend our time on the net .
If you people have any more suggestions , do post them ..
