IELTS Writing Task 2: Internet Communication and Information

Internet-Sign

It is generally believed that the internet is an excellent means of communication but some people suggest that it may not be the best place to find information.

Discuss both views and give your own opinion.

The Internet has been a powerful product of Information Technology arena. This can be seen as significant breakthrough in enhancing our virtual communication. While this development led to many benefits, unfortunately, these days, there is a growing reliability-threat on its content.  In the course of this essay, I will discuss both viewpoints and give my opinion.

The Internet has opened a new world for many people around the world. Information Superhighway knows no boundary and brings countless advantages to people. Communication, for instance, emails are delivered extremely fast when compared to traditional post. At present, online shopping and online banking practically the norm, rather than drive to the mall or wait in line at the bank. Moreover, video chat helped overseas workers worldwide in communicating their families from distant places. Technology has changed the way people communicate in so many ways and it helps simplifies the aspects of everyday life.

However, many people doubted the Internet reliability, one of which being the fact that no regulating body monitored the content on the website. For example, the spreading of fake news over social media. The false information deliberately initiated by the creator to fool the masses to advance political causes and gained income from politicians behind. Similarly, students who are performing research in libraries face issues in diverse information from different source. Before books appear in libraries has gone through a series of reviews prior publication. In contrast, on Internet, you give some thought of the reliability of the person who uploaded it.

In conclusion, internet communication enhanced the way we convey information in a very fast manner but information posted from unreliable source deserves a glaring look. In my opinion, though there are several concerns on information uploaded on the internet, yet, the benefits people get from Internet undoubtedly outweigh the negative impact it has had on some individuals.

  1. Your views were absolutely correct like in communication favorably to OFWs and their families (extended family, secret family, unknown family hehehe). In doing research that you don’t have to go to libraries if you are a student, or to buy books and even for references, it’s so easy today by internet. It helps a lot for online businesses, online transaction for payments. It’s a tool also for those looking for someone special. Even for investigation can be a help. Sana nga benefits na lang, but as we can see it is being abuse by those insensitive users, posting double meaning words, catchy sentences, availability of pornography, human trafficking, humiliating pictures of girls / boys, a chance to scammers, of group / individual chatting resulting to illicit affairs or having multiple relationships. Technology makes us wiser or idiots by using it incorrectly.
