Effects of Computers and the Internet on Society

(First published date: 2006/2007 )

Before we know it, technology is going to pass us by. With the invention of the computer and the Internet, the possibilities are endless. Society is changing by leaps and bounds, with no chance of a stopping point soon. All this change is dealing with computers and the effects that they will have on the way we live tomorrow. The Internet affects us in every way, most importantly, with our social lives, jobs, and entertainment.

Effects of Computers and the Internet on Society

Our social lives are not just communicating with telephones and mail anymore. Going “online” is the new way we like to communicate with people. Chat rooms on the Internet are open for people to talk and explore with other people who may live on the other side of the world or the other side of the street. E-Mail is also another popular way to correspond with others. Users can electronically send mail to another person with an online mailbox, simply by typing in their message and sending it with the click of a button. Two seconds to send an e-mail to someone on the other side of the world is much quicker than a week or more through ordinary mail. The Internet can also affect our jobs.

Computers can calculate and figure out things much more quicker than the average person. This process can save not only time but money too. Stock trading is now on the Internet, along with banking and any other type of business you could imagine. The world wants things to be quick and easy. The best answer is to have a computer do it for you. In the future, hundreds of millions of jobs will be taken away from honest, hard-working employees and will be given to computers. These outcomes will become real no matter what choices we make or what plans we change. Why would a business pay someone to take phone orders, when a computer can do it in less time and make it both cheaper and more accessible for the business and the buyer?

Computers and the Internet are definitely affecting the way we entertain ourselves. The most basic example is card games. If the computer can deal out cards on a screen with the click of a button, why would anyone want to deal out a deck of cards manually and have to clean them up afterwards? On the Internet, you can gamble with online casinos, place bets on a horse race, or even watch movies. People can do all of these activities in the comfort of their own homes. No gas money is wasted or time spent driving around to find entertainment, so people are happy. The inevitable outcome of this magnificent invention is going to change the world. Society is happy about the way things are changing. Cheaper is better; less time-consuming is better. With the choice of having a computer and being online, there is almost nothing you cannot do. This remarkable idea of the Internet will revolutionise how we live in the future.
