I searched the google and found this link of positive of the internet. On this discussion websit many people talk about “how does the Internet help people to communicate?” There are many people made examples of their lifes to explain how the internet help them to solve the problems.
One of them name Pohnpei396 said “Before the internet, I lost track of people I had gone to school with and I lost track of people who had been my students. Now, because of Facebook, I am in contact with people that I have not actually seen in 25 years. I also know much more about former students. This really improves my life because I can have some idea about what has happened to be people who were a major part of my life ” I think this is the most important thing of positive of the internet. When we left school, many classmates and friends we would lost. We can use facebook or twitter to track our friends.
Other people said “Also, most of us now have websites on which we post homework assignments, webquests, notes that you can download if you miss class, pdf files of tests you can take at home, etc. And don’t forget YouTube and Skype. My son is a pilot in the Navy and he is stationed in Japan. Once a week, we can talk with him face-to-face on Skype. I cannot imagine how hard it was for families during prior conflicts to only be able to communicate with their military sons and daughters via letters. And speaking of that, webcams allow students to communicate with one another live – all the way across the globe. Students can even take classes via web cams. This is great for missionary kids or American kids who are stationed with their families in other countries where they do not speak the language. Don’t forget online education. There are many, many online programs where you don’t even have to set foot in a classroom – with live chats with the teachers, professors, etc.” We can use internet to find everything which we want. Also YouTube could help us to get information of the other countries.
On the orther side, the Facebook in China has been blocked, because goverment don’t want to people get too much information of other countries. They want to control their people. http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlines/2009/07/chinas-facebook-status-blocked/ This link is talk about how the China blocked the website of other countries. Is that really meaning of freedom? They only can get information what the goverment want to them know.
And Hillary Rodham Clinton said “There are many other networks in the world. Some aid in the movement of people or resources, and some facilitate exchanges between individuals with the same work or interests. But the internet is a network that magnifies the power and potential of all others. And that’s why we believe it’s critical that its users are assured certain basic freedoms. Freedom of expression is first among them. This freedom is no longer defined solely by whether citizens can go into the town square and criticize their government without fear of retribution. Blogs, emails, social networks, and text messages have opened up new forums for exchanging ideas, and created new targets for censorship. ” According to her speeches, we can search everything on the website and communicate everything that we want to talk. It’s truly freedom.
