How Internet Influences People In Real Life

The Internet is the most powerful source to influence people these days. If you want to cast an impression of someone it is the most efficient and effective way, the internet is going to help you with it. The best part about it is that it does not take any time. If you have been using the internet yourself and most importantly the social media sites, it might be very clear to you that new spread even faster than a wildfire. As per everything, this quality of internet is also misused. Almost half of the times the news spread on social media sites are not even true. There are thousands of people whose lives were ruined because of it. The list of people who suffered from mental health issues and even some of them committed suicide.

There are many companies that have settled their business, just by becoming viral on social media. The saddest part is that you do not need any extraordinary qualities to become viral on such sites. All you need to do is pay some famous blogger and boost your post and It will definitely catch the public eye.

The best part is that people are globally connected over the internet. Means that you can launch a product over one end of the world and news will spread to the other end. 90% of the people who own cell phones cannot imagine their lives without using the internet. Half of the industries that have made gold out of internet are just overrated names that know how to make their products viral. The Internet was no longer concerned with information exchange alone: it was a sophisticated multidisciplinary tool enabling individuals to create content, communicate with one another, and even escape reality.

The impact of the internet works in both ways, both positive and negative.

The Positive Impact Of The Internet

If we look at the positive side, you can see that there are people that are connected globally and the information is traveling in a matter of seconds. It has help in boosting up old businesses and some new ones have also been established. There are many self-made people that are making thousands of dollars every day just by posting about their daily routines. What they have so special? There is nothing extraordinary about them, just that they are good at making inspiring sentences and people are loving them for it. by looking at the inspiring stories, some people actually pick up at good habits. When a person is going through a hard time, you never know what is going to hurt them. These are turning points, you will be bent towards whatever inspires you the most.

Influencing People

The people who actually have a positive change in life are few, but we cannot run out the total positivity of it. As the information is running at such a higher pace, the information that keeps storing in our minds also keeps on changing.

Constant Availability

The other positive aspect is the constant availability, you can be anywhere, around the globe and you can respond within seconds. No long hours of waiting and paying high dues to be in contact with people. People no longer spend hours gazing at a computer screen after work or class; instead, they use their mobile devices to stay online everywhere, all the time.

New Opportunities

We cannot deny the fact that the internet has created a lot of opportunities for people around the globe. But the problem is that you need to have know-how about the internet and the right usage. If you are one of those people who have no idea about it, you are lacking behind and probably cannot work over it. We all are well aware of the fact that internet is creating opportunities but only for those who are into in making new businesses and are self-made, common people who rely on small jobs, they cannot take full advantage of it.

Educating People

Educating people over the internet is far easier as compared to making them sit in the class and asking them to memorize books. For what I have observed in the past years, people learn more by looking at things and making their own perception, rather than reading academic books. Whenever an issue is raised, the internet is flooded with memes, new articles, tweets. Most people who are professionals try to give their opinions, due to which the common people get the better know how.

Effect Of The Internet Of Relationships

On one hand, the internet is trying to bring people closer, and in some way, we can say that the world has become a global village. But on the other hand, people are getting busier in scrolling their news feed and would rather sit alone in a room with their phone than to be with their family. For those who are trying to work out their long-distance relationships, cannot deny the significance of the internet. People have been away for years and they still manage to be in contact and see each other.

Wastage Of Time

Internet was created to save time and spread the news over the matter of seconds, but people save time from the internet and waste it on the internet as well. You cannot feel the time passing when you are sitting with the mobile phone in your hand. The before and after effects of internet usage are well known to almost every person. Everybody knows how It occupies your mind, even when you are not using it.90 percent of the time when you are not feeling like doing anything, that is because you want to sit and sweep through your phone or put on a Netflix show. Life is a lot better when you are in a comfortable position and all you have got to do is stare at the screen.

Internet influences people in a lot of ways, your thought, habits, a way of thinking, everything is affected by its usage. The effect can be both positive and negative, you have to choose which one it is going to be.
