Please feel free to advise. Thank you!

KNOWLEDGE FROM A WEBSITE?



It is generally believed that the Internet is an excellent means of communication but some people suggest that it may not be the best place to find information. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.

Using the Internet to connect with each other has brought a new aspect to the world, comparing to the main communication method 100 years ago. Although the Internet has its advantages, people still have doubts on whether the information provided is trustworthy. The essay is going to discuss how the Internet has shaped our lives.

With the Internet attached closely to our daily lives, people are able to expand their social circle and broaden the horizon. Nowadays, reaching out to others is simply a click on the phone to make it happen. Moreover, people who share common interests can find their ways to bond even they are thousand miles apart from each other. From reasons listed above, I think the Internet has brought a positive influence to the world.

On the contrary, exploding information comes along with the growth of the Internet usage, people tend to hold a conservative attitude towards the reliability. Take the US election for example, people with intention spread fake news all over the Internet to manipulate the public, which can be extremely wrong but neither precautions were executed in advance nor any regulations are established afterwards.

The evolution of the Internet somehow has brought the world together in a way. Despite having a more convenient life today, there are two sides of the same coin and it is important that people keep this in mind. To keep up with the ever-changing nature of technology, it requires people to think ahead of the future challenges and take appropriate actions.

hi,
personally, I think your essay is off topic. The task asks you to discuss the statement : ... the Internet is an excellent means of communication but ..., not how the Internet has shaped our lives. Also, you didn't give your opinion about the statement.
