You can also order different services. If you log on to Internet you can purchase anything you can imagine. Just clicking a right button, you can order term paper or pizza, or tickets to a rock concert.

Thus you can see that people can practically live on-line, because it is possible to work on-line, study on-line, have fun on-line and even date on-line. But is virtual world a good place to spend your time? People can spend up to 18 hours sitting at the computer. No matter how well is screen protection installed, it is still very harmful not only for your eyes, but also for your organism. Can you imagine your body being x-rayed 18 hours in a row? But this is exactly what happens when you spend days in front of your computer. We can’t but mention considerate parents’ worries about what their kids read and see on-line. Except useful information there, children can find different sites that carry not very useful information. That’s why there are some servers that filter out information your computer receives. We can’t but mention the consequences of sitting in front of the computer all the time. It turns people into typical couch potatoes. They don’t care to stand up and go for a walk or to have some physical exercises. This can result into numerous ailments and problems.
Internet is an isolator too. No matter how much you communicate on-line, it doesn’t give you a credit in speaking with live people. You don’t see facial expressions, gestures, don’t hear their voices. That can tell much about your friend. On-line you have no choice but to believe in anything that is said to you. Then don’t be mad if somebody deceives you. You didn’t know the person well; all you knew was his/her e-mail or ICQ number. Using services provided in the Internet one has to be very careful, not to get in trouble. But what can we do without it nowadays? Due to internet a lot of other businesses started to prosper. We are talking about age of information. How can it exist without Internet? Of course, there are some advantages and disadvantages, but we can’t refuse ourselves in pleasure to get into the world of virtual wonders.
