To me, using the internet is so interesting, much more than fun, entertainment and experience. You may also have wondered about how the internet has gone a long way to provide so many intriguing benefits to you, myself and the rest of the human family; talking about research, exploring, connecting, just to mention but few.
There are times when you come across so many things and I mean everything springing from what you need and those you don’t, some of the worse being so abhorring. Can we, I mean you and me plus the entire ‘cyber-related’ people overlook the fact that the internet as it is can be a ‘wave of disaster’ to humanity?
I’m not alone when it comes to the fact that some internet related stuffs can be so disgusting. There are times when you are busy browsing for priceless information, then suddenly here it comes! Of course you know what I am saying? Nudity, explicit image files, pornography and the likes. The annoying stuff you don’t want to see! Then quickly you have to turn that internet page off.
It is indeed as they say, true that ‘formerly, dogs hunted for bones but these days, bones avail themselves for dogs with limited efforts of hunting or none at all’.
The Internet has also in recent times been a bridge of transport that transfers rumors to the most distant part of the world.
With social networks and Apps such as Facebook, WhatsApp and the others, listing but few, the rate of transporting false information and rumors some of which tarnishes the image of honest famous people and big companies can never be underestimated.
What about the cases of connecting with friends over the internet across countries and other borders? Connecting with friends over the internet, some of those we know little or nothing at all about (them) can be dangerous. Why? Some friends can be imposters and can harm us, running into our privacy and releasing a good factor of our online information.
In view of these, I made a bunch of important research to publish a document of some important ways to be smart on the internet and how to protect ourselves; you and me, plus the rest of the internet related folks.
