Since we were all about 10 we have been exposed to the internet. We face both positive and negative social effects. Some negative effects internet addiction, loss of formal writing skills. I think that we are not aware of the safety aspect of getting on the internet. We are exposed to chat rooms, Facebook, and twitter. Some don’t realize that putting your information on social websites can be dangerous. Socially I think that internet addiction is a really big problem. I remember that my mom was always on the computer playing games, getting on Facebook etc. The first thing she would do when she got home was get on the computer, and that was were she stayed for the rest of the day. It ran her life. This was also before we had smartphones. So I think internet addiction is a big a negative social effect. I also think that we begin to loose writing skills. Everything we do now is on the computer, we don’t write our own papers anymore. Some positive social effects on the internet include being accessible to all kinds if information around the world, also sources for teaching and learning, and we can also learn about cultural background of different countries. I think the internet has very many positive effects as it does negative.
