What are the disadvantages of the Internet?

Disadvantages of the Internet

Every invention has two aspects, good and bad. However, for all its advantages and positive perspectives, every technology has its obscure and nasty side.  Similarly, the Internet too has its perks and demerits. No doubt, the Internet has given a different direction to the entire world and has made people's lives better and easier in many ways. But we cannot deny that the age of the Internet has an uglier side to its existence and has thrown up several problems thrown for its users and society. We all have witnessed several incidents and news where the Internet had made its users' lives unhealthy.

In the below tutorials, let’s briefly discuss the disadvantages of the Internet: 

1.  Breaches the Content Piracy

With the bulk of data available freely on the Internet, we have witnessed the misuse of this information. Time and again, we experience theft robbery cases where people steal the ideas and concept of the information available and make them their own. Thus, it breaches the unique and genuine content. Apart from these, people can post anything on the Internet, which sometimes is total garbage and useless. 

2.   Depriving of social communication

The negative impacts of the Internet are most evident in children. They have become so addicted to online videos and cartoons that they have started losing their ability to communicate with others. They can easily communicate over chat and messaging but have started developing an introvert personality. Thus, they feel inferior while communicating with others face to face fluently. That’s the reason most of the children today are not amicable and find it challenging to merge with new group of people.

3.  Internet and the anonymity

One of the biggest problems of the Internet is that it has permitted an inordinate pact of anonymity. People use these anonymous identities and fake around people using forged websites, forums and chat platforms. It has enabled perverted personalities to gain the benefit of innocent people by manipulating and abusing their trust. We can always overhear Internet fraud and crime news possessed by cheaters.  Unlike single ladies, teenage students, or vulnerable people, the cheater locates gullible victim and cheats on them by borrowing money from them or sometimes blackmail them.

4.  Addiction, time waster and causes distractions

There are excellent online video games with the Internet that have blocked and shut all the outdoor games and activity. Children or even youngsters are so addicted to them that they have become couch potatoes. They tend to spend ample time on the Internet. Instead of utilizing it with productive work, as per research, sitting perpetually in front of mobile or laptop screens puts a strain on eyes, neck and shoulder. Thus, damaging their eye sights, spine, and eventually, the body gets weaker and out of shape. Many games contain stressful content. Those are so stressful that they have compelled the teenagers to go to the extent of suicide. On the same note, the Internet obstructs office productivity.

5.  Spamming

Spamming is the term given to send voluntary messages using some messaging systems over the Internet. It is usually done for the advertising purpose by sending repetitive messages repeatedly over the same mail id. It piles up your mail with unwanted emails and among which your essential and official emails get ignored. Sometimes, due to the spam mails you bypass credit card bills or bank notifications which could be problematic. 

6.   Hacking and Tracking

There is a lot of cyberbullying and fraud that you have to be aware of, and in that way, the Internet could be quite dangerous as a result. Hackers develop and program viruses that can run through your PC and ruin its data and dysfunction its configuration. Through these malicious programs, they steal your data, documents and password. Thus, resulting in enormous economic loss.

7.  Social Alienation

It’s not the Internet but rather one form of the Internet, which is visual-based entertainment because it compels the user to neglect physical movement. You can get distracted from browsing the Internet and waste your precious time. Once you surf one video or music clip, you will get trapped by the tempting videos provided by the Internet. In the absence of physical moment, children can easily fall prey to eating disorders, diseases unlike obesity, and surpass interpersonal skills development. In today’s world, we all sit with our loved ones but still spend less time with people in real life. Less communication and face-to-face interaction may result in a decline in social attitude. Thus, fall prey to depression.

8.   Pornographic and inappropriate content

Today, students are exposed to the Internet at a very tender age, and with time they are used to it as their routine habit. The Internet is an accessible and approachable medium to access pornography. Thus, it possesses the most significant threat by deviating teenagers sexually and making them sexually addictive. Not only is this, as per the latest survey and reports, there a steady rise of STD (sexually transmitted disease) among teenagers. It is said that every year one out of four teenagers are getting septic with STD, and it all because of the adultery content available on the Internet.

9.  Intimidation, trolls, stalkers,

The Internet has indeed made our lives artificial and full of show offs. But with this all glittery and boastful, their lies a negative aspect as well. Intimidations, trolling, and staling becomes irritating and sometimes paves the way for depression and suicide. Celebrities and recognized personalities often face these trolling even for a simple post. 

10. Money Frauds

Today net banking and e-commerce have made our lives easy and convenient. Online shopping, online business, credit card, debit card and virtual shops are so approachable to use as you need not go into the market. Though the legitimate sites are highly secured, the fraudulent websites and advertisements still prevail. Their main aim is to fetch your data, credit card information and pin code data, which they further use to withdraw money from your bank unethically.
