Knowledge is power.
Now people are so much attached to the internet that no one knows what will we do if we can't use it anymore.
It connected people from anywhere in the world, using emailing and instant messaging services we can talk to anyone that we and even with strangers.
Banking and shopping online have made our life easy, and online payment options made ease of transaction.
We can get any information on the internet enhanced, which increases our research power.
Also, there are some bad effects like, easy availability of illegal or inappropriate materials online that isn't age-suitable.
We are addicted to the internet, and social media affecting our real life.
Your privacy isn't safe, if you go into some unsafe pages on the internet it will steal your data.
Misuse of the internet can lead us to danger.
Still, the internet is good for us. We just have to be aware of hackers and any unsafe activities that are going on the internet.
According to me the two most prominent effect of the internet on society is:
Information overload: Information overload is associated with loss of control, feelings of being overwhelmed, reduced intellectual performance, and diminished job satisfaction.
Damage to social relationships: Extensive use of social media, in particular, is correlated with loneliness and social isolation.
In order to live a happy life, we need to make a good balance between real life and digital life.
