In my opinion the Internet is a great invention that brings far more benefit than evil. First of all, one can be constantly in touch with their friends no matter where they are. For example, a person can call their friends who are in Australia, using iP connection, and talk as if they were near. Secondly, it allows a person to share not only texts but pictures, songs and videos. For instance, one takes a lot of photos and videos and just shares the access to their friends who can use everything without the photos or videos being sent.

At the same time there are people who claim that the Internet has bad influence on people. People almost stopped communicating with each other, spending hours in their gadgets.

I do not agree with the opinion mentioned above. A lot of good things can be turned into bad ones, if they are misused and the Internet is not an acceptation. It is up to a person if he or she gets overdosed with surfing in the net. In reasonable amount communicating through the Internet only makes relationship better.

In conclusion, I would like to say there are opposing views on this issue. At first sight the Internet seems evil and harmful, but in actual fact, it is really beneficial. Thus, I strongly believe that the Internet is not the biggest evil of our time.
