The Internet World (Positive or Negative Effects?)

The internet, media and the expanding world of social networking has both advantages and disadvantages. There has been so much technological growth and expansion, since the days of the VHS (video machine), black and white television, manual typewriter etc.

Is it a toxic digital world?

In this modern times, information is spread around the world by the touch of a few buttons. Long lost friends, acquaintances and families have been reunited, friendships and relationships have been made and broken, many crimes committed and many solved via social media forums.
There have been plenty of positive effects brought about by this trend of interacting via social mediums so I wonder why there is so much negativity, internet rage, malicious and spiteful blogs, articles and websites which thrive and encourage hate and negativity.
Some of us are getting caught up in this unconsciously and the vicious circle could affect our mind set, attitude and perception of social networking in general.
A colleague gave me details of some websites which focus and highlight only positive and inspirational news. I have been spending time reading articles and generally being inspired by the uplifting words and experiences of other people.
People who have chosen to explore, appreciate and share good messages which give hope and not dwell on hate and limitations of ourselves and others.
The writings are mostly real life stories and have given me more strength and motivation to continue to be true to myself and my values and believing that which each new day I am privileged to see, I can make good thing happen for myself and those around me.
For any of us who realise we may be caught up in the negativity and bitterness the of internet world, stop accessing such sites, do a search and discover a few websites which focus on and celebrate the good things within each one of us and around us.

I quite agree with wonder. It all depends how we use things. Thanks to the Internet, I was able to check if my tenants had paid the rent punctually as agreed and while I was away. One thing I´ll never do on the Internet is shopping on-line. I still like going to shops when the need be.

The internet does have its advantages, I wish more users would focus on this.

The net for sure has its share of night and day as all things do have angelic and satanic uses. Guidance from the Lord through our senses will not fail us which road to tread.
