In today’s discussion about the internet, We discussed whether we feel the internet is a gift or a curse. I believe it is both! It is a gift and a Curse. The world wide web is a matrix that bridges the gaps between information and nations. We are able to use it freely but it is also used to manipulate the masses. Unfortunately, there has been many misuses of the internet or apps that use the internet. One example: A 17 year girl live broadcasted her suicide on Periscope to “spread a message”. What was she trying to say .. I have no Idea. Another thing I thought about is how businesses manipulate the internet in the sense of the type of information we can access. For example: Facebook, Google, twitter all tailor their timelines for users to access. So my question is .. Do you truly believe that the internet practices democracy even with the manipulations?
I found an interesting article where they cover religion and how the internet plays apart of the practice. https://jordanfrancispatricksmith.wordpress.com/2015/07/14/internet-gift-curse/
