ADDICTED TO INTERNET
In the past several years many people have been getting computer
literate. As time passes by, people also have been getting addicted to their
computers. These people have spent most of their time in front of their
computers. These certain type of people can be categorized as to positive
social reasons, finding information, negative minded, and to playing games.
The first category of being computer addicted is positive social
reasons. People go inside the internet to meet people of the opposite sex.
The reason is to try to meet the perfect person to get involved with or
maybe to get married. Others just chat in the internet to meet friends all
around the world. Maybe that person is feeling lonely and feels that he or
she wants to talk to somebody. Others just chat for the fun of it to mess
around with other people s mind. Probably that person wants to get
somebody angry and wants to have a very great conversation.
The second category is finding information. People who want more
detail information on a specific topic, go inside the internet. Others maybe
have research papers or homework and are having problems doing their
work and want to find more information on what they are working on, they
go inside the internet. Students who do not have the time to drive or can
not get a ride at a certain hour for class session, they sign up to get
class session through the internet and could get lectured right at home.
The third category of being computer addicted is negative social
reasons(perverted minded). Most of the common people who have a
perverted mind are men. Some of the men who do not have nothing to do
at all, they go inside the internet and try to find some pictures or movies
of naked women. Some other men probably have their own web page and
put up all the pictures of naked women in the internet. Sometimes I question
myself does anything in the world functions for positive use only?
The final category of being computer addicted is playing games.
Some people go into the internet to play all the free games available. Some
people spend most of their time playing all of the games that they enjoy
the most. A very good example of a game addict is my girlfriend. When she
starts playing a game called Pinball 3D and I tell her to stop, she refuses to
stop playing the game because she tells me that she has a high score, I mean
it s like a drug, you can not get enough of it.
In the past several years more people around the world are becoming
computer literate. Pretty soon people will not even go out of their homes to
go to a local library or to a mall. With the internet you could browse through
to find any book that you need or find information about. And also with the
internet you could get items that you need straight to your home without
taking a step out of your house. You could do so many things with the
internet, that s why it s probably addicted. As far as I am concern the world
is becoming a spooky place to live on, what will they think of next? You
might never guess.
