True Colour Of Internet & Right Judgment Of Government.
The Internet is a worldwide system of computer networks - a network of networks in which users at any one computer can, if they have permission, get information from any other computer. It has its origins in military and academic projects, but began to be more widely available from the end of the 1980s. The creation of the World Wide Web and web browsers gave ordinary people easy ways of getting around the internet. Over the past fifteen years, millions of different websites have set up, giving people the chance to shop, do business, play, learn and communicate online. Over the same period it has become much easier, cheaper and faster to get online in order to do these things.
In the world today, more than 26.7% of people have access to the internet. These figures are growing rapidly, especially with the arrival of powerful new mobile phones that can access the internet.
The internet has brought greater prosperity, allowing lots of different businesses to set up online. This has brought a lot more choice to ordinary people, and also driven down prices as people find it easier to compare different companies’ products. Small businesses can cheaply set up online and find a market for their goods and services. And by making it easier to work anywhere with an internet connection, it has allowed many more people to work from home and to share out projects with co-workers over the whole world The arrival of internet has greatly changed the way in which people search and have access to information. News travels faster than ever, and current affairs can be discussed on online forums with people from all over the world. Search machines like Google and Wikipedia are a commonly used starting point for researching essays and other school tasks. Many people maintain social contacts through sites like Facebook, MSN and MySpace. We can talk to each other via chat rooms, and look at each other’s pictures, while we listen to an artist’s latest song in the background. Some research estimates that adults in the US spend about 13 hours and teens about 31 hours online each week. Other research shows that most of that time is used for social contacts. Some have argued that all this time spend online cannot be healthy, whereas other have cheered the increased possibilities for research, meeting new people and keeping in contact with each other.
On the other hand, it has also created many detriments. For instance, there is a higher risk that some of the facts or quotations in an article written in a particular website are false. Whereas newspapers might lose customers if people find out they gave been ‘selling lies’ so, news and views shown in the net may not be more reliable than in any other sources like newspapers. Counterfeit is a serious and subsisting problem that the whole world including our country is facing today due to internet. Similarly, pornography is a very serious issue concerning the internet, especially when it comes to young children.
There are thousands of pornographic sites on the internet that can be easily found and can be a detriment to letting children use the internet .Likewise there is another problem spamming which means sending unsolicited e-mails in bulk, which serve no purpose and unnecessarily clog up the entire system. These have made every nation failure to develop.
That’s why; the government of our country is in the process of reducing the usage of internet. It is obviously good to control such illegal activities happening but it is also the fact that inaccessibility to it can be a great cause of backwardness and it will hamper the progress of every citizen. So, the authorized persons should block the unnecessary sites and find out the main leaders behind the spamming and disposing ones right.
Cut in short, the government should afford to control the disadvantages of usage of net with keeping the benefits of it in their mind. Also the every local person who uses it should know its correct use and never go against the rule while using it. This effort made by both side the users and the service provider will surely wipe out the current problems regarding net.
