1) If the Internet stopped tomorrow, I wouldn't live daily life. Because, I use Internet every day to search for things I want to know and check recently news and watch YouTube, so I use Internet many time in a day. It is not too much to say Internet is the most important tool for me. We can check Internet's information anywhere even if we don't have much time. So I think Internet is indispensable for my daily life. And now all over the world is growing globalization, therefore information oriented society is making steady progress. So,I think we have to check Internet information every day.
I agree with you. the internet made our living so useful. If the Internet stopped tomorrow, I would confuse.
I agree your opinion. I use Internet everyday too.
I think so too. The Internet important for me.
I sympathize with you. I use internet many time in a day too.
2)I think the Internet has been bad for society. There are two reasons.
Firstly, the Internet has changed our lives because some people are hurt by using it. For example, we can evaluate the meal on the Internet after we went to the restaurant. Of course, it is glad for restaurant's owner to be written good things, for example," Very delicious." But people who weren't satisfied with the meal, they may complain " It was very bad." It is important to be honest but people who read this comment are offended. The Internet can expand not only good information but also bad one rapidly.
Secondly, those who often use an e-mail have less an opportunity to write a letter. Because we can communicate with many people to send an e-mail easily. It is useful when we are busy but I think an e-mail doesn't have warmth because of fixed words. In contrast to this, a letter has warm-hearted things to be written by person's hand. I think if we use only an e-mail, we forget human's warmth.
So I think the Internet has been bad for society.
Great oppinion, Momoko. I agree with that. We have less oppotunity to talk face to face. In addition, some young people wast much time to use the Internet. However, I think the Internet has also good sides.
I think so too. I think an e-mail is essential function for us.
2) I think the Internet has been good for society. There are three reasons. First, the Internet allowed us to get information easily. Because of that we can find information which we need quickly by using search engines. If we couldn’t use the internet, we’ll waste much time to get information. Second, we can communicate with people easily by using SNS such as Twitter, Face Book and Instagram. One of good example is Jasmin Revolution. It’s a democratic movement which occurred in Tunisia. This country was a dictatorship about 6 years ago. However people was against the government and fought for liberty. Then, they used Facebook to share information. When I heard this news, I thought the internet has an influence on society. Finally, many fantastic innovations were created by the Internet. If there were no the Internet, innovations like smartphones, SNS and websites wouldn’t are created. That’s so I think the Internet has been good for society.
I agree your opinion. I was surprised that SNS power when happened Jasmine Revolution.
I agree with Risa's opinion. I use the Internet everyday. So if the Internet stopped tomorrow, I would confuse and sad.
I agree with Yuki's opinion. I like to check twitter and instagram because they make me happy. It's good for me to get new information.
I think the Internet has good for society. I have two reasons. First, it's useful to get new information. And it's amuse to know new information. I check twitter and instagram every day. For example, when I found a shop where I want to go, I check twitter and instagram. They provide me with very clear information because they have many photos and videos, sentences. Second, the Internet makes our lives convenient. I can't speak Chinese. But if you have the Internet you can speak Chinese with translation function. That's wonderful! That's why, I think the Internet has been good for society.
Hello, Aya. I realized that we have to make use of convenience of the Internet. If we understand good and bad points of the Internet, we can change our lives into better one.
I think that your view point about amusement information is good. Do you have experience feel you happy through the internet information?
I check twitter and instagram every day too! I get news by using it .
I check Twitter and Instagram every day too! .I think these are good internet that naturally show my recent situation to my friends.
I use Internet to get new information too. What kind of Internet site do you like?
I think Internet is useful to get new information,too!!
I think I can probably live without the Internet. Because when all Internet stop, nobody can’t connect by the Internet. I think it would be better to use letters or public phone.
But, we don’t get used to connect people in such a way. I think people feel embarrassment. I can’t imagine society no Internet.
If the Internet stopped tomorrow, I think we can’t work, can’t study and can’t shopping as before.
Nowadays the Internet is an essential in all situations and our lives.
As a result, we can live without Internet. But, it is too difficult for modern people like us to live without Internet.
Internet has both a good and bad side. so, I decided to use Internet while thinking well.
Hello, Yuri. I think I'm confused if the Internet stopped. But If it hadn't been created, we would have taken it for granted without the Internet.
I think Internet is important for my life.
1) If the internet stopped tomorrow, I’d it affects to me two points. First, I can’t do net surfing. Every day I’m using internet for net surfing, so my getting way what is information will be changed. Second, I can’t submit homework through use internet. Some teachers told students to submit on websites, like using upshowa. Second affect to me is changing submit way homework.
My idea that in society affect is occur disturb in short time, after people adapt not use the internet life. It seems that life is decline, but happen new culture around teenager. Finally, changing style to gain information way on society.
That’s all my idea if the internet stopped tomorrow, how would it affect me and society.
2） l think that the lnternet has been good for society. Because, we can communicate with people all over the world. When I was high school student, I went to Australia on a school trip. I did a homestay for two days. It was shot time, but it was very fun. And now, I can communicate with that hostfamily. The reason is because there is Internet. When I was going to Australia, I searched for there on the Web. If I didn't have the Internet, I couldn't search for there. The Internet has bad points, but it has more good points.
Have you ever contacted the homestay family on the Internet?
I think the Internet can communicate. Especially, Twitter is easy to connect all over the world/
2) I think Internet is bad for social. But we can’t get any information if the Internet runs out. We usually use the internet. For example, there are means to connect with people such as SNS and mail. Also, the Internet is indispensable for grasping the weather and the situation today. Thanks to the Internet, we can live conveniently. However, this is convenient, but there are also bad points. The information on the Internet is not necessarily the fact. In the Kumamoto Earthquake that happened last year, information on the "Lion escaped" immediately after the earthquake appeared on Twitter. This information is lie. With this lie information, many people got confused. I learned that information on the Internet should not be believed easily. Also, when obtaining the information, I felt it necessary to confirm the information source in order to reveal the fact
1. If the Internet stopped tomorrow, how would it affect you? How would it affect society?
I think I don't spend everyday life.
First of all,I don't know train to going to school. I search for train every day.If I can arrive Showa woman's university ,I couldn't locate classroom. And in lunch time I can't meet my friends . We contact on the phone always.
Again I think that, I notice I can't everything. My life is supported by phone.
And society too. Now trains route is managed internet. Not to moment ,many work can't do whiteout internet. Society doesn't work.I think our life return 1970years life. Can we patience? I don't think so.
1) If the Internet stopped tomorrow, I will be confused. Because I use internet in lots of places every day.
For example, I use Internet to find out timetable of train. If it become unable to recognize, I can find out immediately in train. It's not necessary to find out rail road.
Next, I use Internet to watch drama on YouTube. I watch drama, movie, music video and comedy on YouTube. If I can’t use there, my life is boring.
I think that Internet is very convenient and easy to use. Maybe, everyone used in the world. If the Internet stopped in the world, People all over the world may be confused.
I use You Tube too. Do you have some recommendations?
1)If the internet stopped tomorrow, I can't live without it. I gather information by the internet every day. I can get the results quickly. When I can't use it, I would go to the library. I would take a long time to search something. And,I ask someone else for example my family and friends. I use SNS every day too. I won't be able to communicate with friend frequently. I would write a letter or call on the fixed-line phone.
In society, I can't use online shopping so some company of mail order site bankruptcy or decrease in income.
