Over two hundred fifty million people go on Facebook and YouTube daily. Is it because they want to stay in touch with distant friends or due to pure boredom? Does the public want to share their opinions or find something to waste time on? I believe that the Internet and other communication devises airing bringing people together with proper usage.
When I use the Internet it is solely for connecting with relatives and friends or for homework. The Internet is used so often and by so many people that it can effect their social behavior however if used correctly, it can people together and make the public more informed.
