We see it everyday. We use it everyday. We interact with it everyday. And some of us just can’t live without it. What am I talking about? Well I am talking about the Internet! It has become the norm in our daily life to be connected to it. Be it for scouring the web on where to take our next date to, reading on our favourite celebrity gossip or just finding relevant sources for our next school blog project, the Internet is our go-to place for sourcing information on just about anything.
However, like the proverbial saying “Too much of a good thing, is a bad thing”, does it apply to the Internet as well? Unfortunately for some individuals, the Internet has brought about the onset of a psychological disorder called Internet Addiction. Despite how useful and positively life changing the introduction of the Internet has brought to us, it has brought certain negative aspects in the modern world. In my subsequent blog postings, I will highlight the main issues of Internet Addiction like types of the addiction, the severity of it, what encompasses internet addiction and my conclusion on how the Internet in general has brought about the negative and positive impact on our society.
In the meantime, do not worry. You can still update your facebook status update or play your favourite online game because I doubt most of you readers are addicts. Or are you? 🙂
