The Negative Impact Of The Internet On People

The good thing about social networking nowadays is that it makes it easier and faster for people to get information, but the bad thing is that – to a certain extent – it forces people’s minds to be stuffed with all kinds of superfluous content. Whether you want to know or not, whether you can accept it or not, and whether you develop fatigue or not, big data is bound to push you all sorts of diverse content based on your preferences or your interests. For instance, if you are interested in online gaming, the content will navigate your interests and send materials to you like casino gambling, pussy888 apk download. It’s not just that it’s a lot of stuff, it’s that we can’t resist it.

To be fair, these things have brought people negative effects. 

The first is that when you read too much of this confrontational stuff on the internet, your mind is loaded with so much spam that you find it very easy to get irritated when you need to sink your teeth into writing, or reading.

The second is that emotions are stirred up so much that your tolerance for negativity is reduced. For example, if you receive one hundred misogynistic messages a day, the next time a slight injustice occurs in your life, you will feel very intolerant, this is what I have learned from observing most of the more bigoted feminist netizens, but I personally have not yet reached this level, or I have reached this level without realising it. 

The third point is that as far I’m concerned, the internet is very one-sided and not representative of society as a whole. And if one is too glued to the internet, it can cause a cut-off from reality – not a disconnect from reality, but a cut-off. For example, if you grew up in the sunshine and grew up in the spring, and you don’t know what the poor countryside is like, the internet will one-sidedly push you rural-related, or even push you what you want to see based on your personal preferences – yes, it doesn’t matter if what you see is true, but it must be what you subconsciously want to see. So this creates a kind of fragmentation, where you are increasingly adhering to your original preconceptions about what you know, and you are increasingly being misled into forming prejudices about what you don’t know.

However, because of the rapid development of the Internet and the advent of the traffic era, big data has pushed too much curious and exciting content to us, and at the same time, everyone has paid an invisible price.
