The internet has been a blessing to people. It has made life easy and helped technology improve. We cannot imagine how good it is for us. It’s really amazing how much we rely on Google to search information. School work, research, study material and etc. Unfortunately, our majority youngsters are using it in a very bad way by wasting their precious time with using Face book, Skype, WhatsApp and many more. No doubt, because of misusing internet the students are reducing their interest in their studies.
Nonetheless, another misuse of the internet is cyber bullying. People make fake profiles on social networking sites and email ids so that they can anonymously threaten a person. Victims of cyber bullying face psychological issues that interfere with their daily routine and work. It is also one of very bad habit for us, which we are doing. Hence, in modern time, this technology is the most important thing for us, which has many positive aspects so it should not be used in a negative way.
