The internet has caused people to become dumber and shallower thinkers. Since the information is already available in front of them, they do not use their mental abilities to dive into the information and reach to conclusions. Psychological effects such as depression, loneliness, and rage can also be observed in individuals who use the internet excessively. Carr (2010) wrote in his article that the less concentrated people in a given task are the ones who were continuously distracted with email and other messages.

“Typically, the concern about our dependence on technology is that it detracts from our time with family and friends in the real world,” (Parker-Pope).

The internet is a great place for social networking and meeting or communicating with people across the world.

Meaning that there is a growing disparity between those that are able to benefit and access computers and the World Wide Web, thus creating an information have and an information have not scenario. These same studies often conclude that it is due to a lack of access to personal computers and the web that this "digital divide" exists. Thus giving way to the argument that if there were someway to provide everyone with access to a personal computer and the web then we can close the digital divide.

As a result, our society will lack empathy, and violence will increase. On the other hand, our creativity is affected because technology has granted us the ability to search up information and facts in just a few clicks. This has made us lazy to come up with our own ideas and
One important thing that he told me is that the Internet connection in many other countries is still very slow and not so accessible as in the US.
