In the world we live in today, we rely a lot on the Internet to dictate the way we relate to others, without even realizing that the Internet is becoming an integral part, of the way we communicate with our relatives and friends.
So we have to be very careful, not to only use a computer to say hello to our family members, friends, and the world.
In today’s article, we will be looking at the Internet and how it has shape, our perception of the world,
The way we consume information today is very different, from the way we use to consume information, many years ago.
Due to the fact, that information today has shifted, from being consumed on a new paper, or a television set, to the Internet.
People find it more convenient to use the Internet for all of their needs, including communicating with other people and paying for things they need online.
One thing that the internet has changed for us, is the fact that we don’t consider important news, important anymore.
Instead, we are always trying to pay attention, to what is not important in life, most of us humans are stuck following the lives of many so-called stars, who are the worst people of the planet.
What if the government sends us a letter in the mail that was titled “Are we missing it? Kids are getting Stupid.
The role The Internet plays, in our relationships with each other and the world.
” In today’s society, it is more important for kids to know who Lady Gaga is, then to know, the name of the first president, of the United States of America.
Many people are not after real information today anymore, and due to that fact, many people don’t seek to have a real relationship anymore.
It might be a concern to some to see that many people and kids in particular, who live their lives involved with technology, for most of the day are missing old-fashioned pleasures of life.
When you don’t enjoy the old fashioned way of life, there is something in you that dies, because whatever you may think is old and not necessary anymore in life, is the very thing that keeps life going, and from being chaotic.
The Dangers and Benefits of Social Networking Sites
Today kids, teenagers, and most adults are spending more time watching movies and updating their Twitter account every 10 seconds and doing things online which are not important at all.
People should instead read a good book or real information that would aid their life, and give them a purpose.
You have to be careful with the things, that you are consuming online, and the way that you interact with the world online.
If you don’t carefully, watch what you do online, then one day the cyber world, will without a doubt take over your life, and you won’t know what to do, or how to deal with the reality that you have to now face.
Technology is taking not only the alone time we ought to have to ourselves but also the rewards that come with it.
It is like getting to know our souls, an orientation to the unknown, and to know how to meditate.
However, we spend all this time in front of a computer, looking to satisfy our curiosity, hunger and often times, our pleasures in life.
Many of us go online, to satisfy our lust, or to simply watch porn because porn online is very accessible to anyone who wants to view.
We must, however, control our impulses, because viewing certain things and doing certain things, in the cyber world, can prove to be a mistake, and can definitely ruin your life.
So open your eyes wide open, when you are searching for things online, and don’t you think that you can relax and be on the Internet.
The Internet is the last place you want to use, to entertain yourselves or relax
Be very cautious, of the things you find interesting online.
We are experiencing one of the widest gaps of social interaction among humans today, and we owe that disconnection among humans to the INTERNET.
The true purpose of communication is being lost because of social networks, and also because people don’t find it important to talk on the phone or see family members face to face.
Networking sites today grow exponentially daily and therefore, people become attached to these website.
Many of us are so attached to social networking sites, that it is important for some of us, that our social live online is being monitored and updated every day.
We can’t go a day, without checking who is online, who posted what online, and post what we do every day online.
It is becoming insane, to think that social networking sites are not part of our everyday routine
Without a social media website, we wouldn’t be able to function as a society.
How insane we can be, how stupid are we becoming, are we becoming smarter or dumber, closer or further from the truth?
It is all up to you though, you are the person with the mouse, and the one who is in front of that monitor.
If you decide to spend all day, on a website, which is not benefiting you anything, and not be online trying to monetize on some idea you previously had, then don’t complain later in life, when things become really difficult for you and your family members.
We are now satisfied with getting a fast overview of an individual’s life, by reading a person’s character status update or by watching a video or a picture online.
We believe that online communication is the new way of communicating with each other, when this is not the case.
Back in the day, it was long letters, a telephone call, and visits that were the way of communicating with other people.
In many cases, people were able to paint pictures of their lives and experiences, due to the fact that they were communicating face to face.
People were able to express more emotions with each other, and their unique personalities would be reflected in the correspondence, by phone or due to face to face conversation.
Expressing our emotions and letting our unique personalities shine and be seen by others are all health benefits, which we can get, from personal interaction with others.
However, most of us rather push people out and don’t interact with anyone, who is important in our lives.
We must stop pushing people away from us
People who we deem important, and those who we consider valuable to our lives. We must keep close to us.
Do all this technology makes our lives more meaningful, are we being disconnected from each other and life itself? Seeing a post from a childhood friend or being their friend in one of those social networking sites; give some people the illusion that they are already connected with old friends.
Therefore, there is no point in meeting with that friend face-to-face anymore.
The essential part of the relationship therefore, deteriorates and there is no real connection between people anymore.
Some people’s friendships are falling into the online world.
People are unable to find a way to change their friendships anymore, some people are not able to bring relationships back into the real world.
Instead, due to the distance, or circumstances, some people prefer to maintain an online relationship, with family members and old friends.
Friendships are being lost into the personal messages we send to each other online, conversations may last days, months or years but eventually, someone stops replying and the other side forgets to check their messages.
Also, people become disinterested in talking to the other person, because the online connection is not a real connection, because it doesn’t bring the special things, which can be felt only, when we are in a relationship, where we see each other face to face.
Whether the parties involved in an online communication know it or not, their friendship has ended and has been replaced, by a network website, which must be checked on every day.
It is sometimes a good thing and sometimes it is a bad thing, to only talk to each other online; because families and their relationships are becoming shortened, or diminished, this is when social networking websites become our most important part of our lives, because they change the dynamics of our relationship.
Networking websites, change the way we interact with each other on a daily basis.
Endless of scams and crooks are on the move today, to find ways to catch their next victims.
Socialization is one of the ways that they are able to find those people, which they believe would fall for a well put together plan, which would take a lot of money away from their victims.
The way the online world works today, is giving scams and crooks a different platform, to execute their plans to rob their victims.
Fraud and Identity Theft are among the biggest dangers that the online world has offer to crooks and thieves.
One areas of the INTERNET where scams are happening a lot more often, is where people spend time online socializing.
Such places are social networking sites, where people are taking their social lives to the next level these days.
More and more people are worried and have to be concerned about their social accounts.
Crazy things can’t be posted online anymore from our accounts, because they tend to follow us for the rest of our lives, and our reputation is very much at stake.
There are many inherent dangers of social networking sites, because of the way that websites work today.
One of the biggest dangers is fraud, sometimes having to do with identity theft, which happens daily online.
Because these sites are based on friends and the passing along of bits of personal information, thieves realized the potential of stealing information instantly.
There are endless social networking scams that crooks can try to pull off, with this medium and we have only seen the “tip of the iceberg” so far.
The newest mainstream social network is Twitter.
It’s based on people following others and getting to read their tweets of 140 characters or less.
This is one of the dangers of social networking sites because many people want as many followers as possible and they aren’t shy about what they say in their tweets.
This highlights the trouble with Twitter and many other social networking sites.
Many people’s goals on these sites are to have as many friends as possible and they just don’t think before they message or add friends.
Unfortunately, this sets them up to be victimized by one scam or the next, because you never know who you are adding to your friend list.
The biggest social network in the world is Facebook.
Started in 2004 by a Harvard student, this site has had a meteoric rise.
Facebook has become a huge software platform that houses every application imaginable and millions of games and groups.
This brings me to another one of the dangers of social networking sites.
With the goal of becoming bigger than big, can these sites really protect the average Jane or Joe while on their site? Yes, this should be up to the individual user, but certain things cannot be controlled by the user and when the site has 200 million users (100 million log in everyday!), how much resource can be used for protecting clients of the site? With so many people logged in everyday that contribute personal information constantly, the crooks have followed and committed Facebook identity theft to get what they need.
There are truly endless scams they have tried and will try to pull off on the social networks.
There are thousands and thousands of Facebook impostors out there looking to make an easy buck or harass people they know.
Be careful! The social network that was dominating until recently is MySpace.
MySpace identity theft like any other online identity theft, can be extremely dangerous for teenagers.
With their brain still developing, it is very easy to take advantage of them by pretending to be someone else (usually a crush).
There have been many cases like this and it devastates the teen when the criminal reveals that it was a hoax.
Many teens have fallen into deep depression or even lost their life, an enormous tragedy and one of the biggest dangers of social networking sites, bullying.
