I know the internet is used by millions of people on a day to day basis but I wonder what it would be like without the internet. Would people feel socially outcast? Would people feel as self conscious? Would there be as many medical/scientific advances? Would people be more sociable?
Without the internet the world would be a completely different place.
For me the internet is a vital part of every day life; after all I am a student studying a media degree…making the internet important for my studies. The internet enables people, who in the “real world” may never meet, to speak…converse…get to know one another. The internet can create relationships, partnerships, careers.
On the other hand the internet can break relationships, it can destroy someone’s career…I believe the internet is what you make of it. If you put information, pictures etc. you aren’t proud of on the internet then, at the end of the day, you’ve only got yourself to blame if that information, or a certain image, comes round to bite you.
