The Internet and the Modem Society
Recently the influence of Internet has attracted much public attention. People worry about the time wasted on it, the damage caused by virus spread on it, and most of all, some violent crimes committed due to the violent games played on it. All these concerns nay be reasonable. / But if we take a broader perspective, we may find that the Internet has had many positive impacts on the modem society.
First of all, Internet has made the access to information more convenient. In the past, people could get information they wanted through only limited channels, such as newspaper, radio, and television. This means that only a certain amount of people could get the information at certain time and in certain place. / But now with the help of Internet, people can get information no matter when and where they want. As a researcher has pointed out, information explosion means that people live in the ocean of information, and Internet has been essential to make that true.
Besides, Internet has also made communication more convenient. Sociologists agree that communication is vital to maintain harmonious human relation, but this communication was rather inconvenient in the past despite the continuous improvement of technology. Letters have been so slow as to be nicknamed "snail mail", telegraph and telephone may be quicker, but they have been very costly. / But now many new communication tools developed on the basis of the Internet, such as e-mail, MSN and QQ, have made talking to a person extremely quick, convenient, and virtually free. This will undoubtedly improve the human relations in the modern world.
The most important impact, however, is that Internet has make social interaction more convenient. Before the era, various social institutes had only limited options to choose from if they wanted to reach the public, and naturally the result was usually unsatisfactory. / But now in the Internet era, all these institutes can set up their own websites, which c7n not only tell the public information but also collect reaction from the public. / For example, the government can collect people's opinion about certain project through the Internet, producers can promote products through Internet and universities can clarify admission policies through Internet. The result is that Internet can help to bring about a more open, fair and interactive society.
In a word, more convenient social interaction, personal communication and access to information are the three major changes the Internet has made in the modern society. Although there do exist some problems with the Internet, these positive influences certainly are more important. What we should do is find measures to solve the problems rather than just talking about them. Just as the proverb says, we should not stop eating for fear of being choked.
