In my opinion, a person it's internet's addicted when he/she can't spends all the day on the internet for listen music, view films ,etc, you're an addict. But if you need to use the internet all the day for
do a work, you aren't an addicted.
I agree with Alvaro. One thing to be on the internet all the time DOING NOTHING, listening to music, playing online games, watching films ... And another thing to do a work take you a long time. For example, I'm 1-2 hours with the computer, but also, many teens are with the phone all day, does not mean you are addicted.
Hello, in my opinion you can be all the day on the computer and dont be an adict, if you are in your home a wednesday without homework and you are bored there isn´t a problem, the problem starts when you can´t control yourself and you doný go with your friend for be better in a game or for have a better life in your habbo´s room. I´am 3-4 hours at day in the pc, and i think i´am not an adict , i´m just bored in my home, so I try to don´t be bored playing videogames in m free time
I've confused the previous comment, this is the correct:
I believe that a person is addicted to internet when you spend more than 2 hours connected to the internet through: Mobile, online games, chat rooms...
It forces you to separerte of: the family, friends, society
Internet is an instrument where you can learn new things and search information. On the other hand, on the Internet there are a lot of ways of entertainment, for example, social networks, videogames online and they could be one of the causes of addiction. From my point of view the social networks and videogames online are the addiction on the Internet, although if you use it on the right way it could be an useful tool.
For my point of vew internet is a good way for comunicate with other people, search information,.. but only if you do of that a good use.
You can be all day conecting to internet with whatsapp or some instant messaging like that and you don't need to be an internet adict but if you spend all day non stop in a virtual life you may become an adict.
For exaple if you are in a social meeting and you are all time looking at your mobile it could be rude.
I think Internet addiction is a problem for the person who suffers and your family and friends.
Internet addiction takes time to be with family, and for sports in general for other activities.
I don´t spend any time with the computer except to do some school work or to find information so I'll never be addicted to internet.
If you ask me about the internet addiction I think that some people use it in the wrong way, maybe they spend many hours on the web doing nothing, but on the other hand there are people who use internet well; learning new things, speaking wiht their family, looking for information...
Internet is a good tool to study, to work, to share information or to communicate.
However internet can be an addiction if we don't use it correctly. Nowdays, some people have the need of being online and answer the messages at the moment but actually, they don't realise that they have an addiction to internet.
What I think about "The correct use of internet" topic is that we can use internet in a correct way, but we normally don't.
We really spend much time in front of our computer doing nothing, many hours from our free time doing useless things... instead of reading or walking with our friends feeling they exist even out of our cell phone screens...
Maybe we could use it in proper way, chatting with our friends about interesting things, but often, the chats are like: -heeeeeeeelloooooo -jajajaja -jajajaaaaajaja -jajaja ja ja ja ja ja. WHAT A HELL ARE WE DOING WITH OUR LIFES? Sometimes I think that monkeys can be really smarter than human beings, but then I say, no, it's impossible... anyway, they are animals, they can't think like us, or invent the things we invent... But then, I see the things we do with our world, the way we use the things, and I think again... No, I was wrong, monkeys aren't smarter than us, full of the animal species are even more clever than us. Isn´t it a shame???
What I want to say after all these explanations is that I love internet, and I think it is great, but we don't use in the way we should. Maybe I am saying a nonsense, but in my opinion, we should be at least during a week without internet so we could really miss it and realise how important it is. Specially if we know the clever way to use it.
I think Internet adiction is a big problem, especially if a person can't live without his/her computer or mobile phone, or if they need to see all the time the messages which their friends have sent to them, so they need help.
But Internet it's also good. For example, it's good to use it for doing your homework if you don't understand something or if you want to talk with your friends but no more than six hours in one day because it could create adiction.
So Internet it's good if you use it in the right way.
Hello, in my opinion the internet adiction is a very imprtant problem for old people but i think that this diction affect principally about the teenagers. I think this because the teenagers are the people that use more the internet. Really affect in the comunication with their families, because they prefer talk with virtual people, and affect to the comunication with friends or people in general. It influence on the way to meet new people and on the shyness of each person. Other problem very big is the way of write in messages and chats, it harm the vocabulary and create errors when we are writing in exams and more serious moments. But sometimes no old is bad, the internet help to all because it has got resources that can get us out of trouble. Thank you.
On my opinion the excesive use of the internet is adicttive , the "extra" time that you take on the internet you can used doing something healthy like playing football ,studyng...
It affect to the young people influecing in their daily lives.
But at the end of the day ,Internet still tool to make homeworks, or eaven play some games with your friends and have a great time .
From my point of view it´s a very big problem.It´s bad for you are all day in front of a computer.This can cause you problems of the view.As well as you don't spend time with your friends and family.A problem of that is that you don´t want meetting with you friend because you preffer play video games in the computer and in my opinion it´s very boring.I think that internet is good for works,homework...
I'm sure that a lot of people spend to much time on the computer or with their mobile phones but it doesen't mean that they have a really addiction, so I think that it isn't a problem if you can control.
In my opinion, people is addicted when he/she spend time with the laptop and they dont play with their friends. They spend all time of the day in their home. these people play online games with other person of the world. I am not addicted because i dont like online games and others things
I think that internet isn´t an addiction ,is a way of comunication where you can chat,search information,play games...
But sometimes can be an addiction for persons that they don´t face the reality,their problems and they use the internet as their addiction .
A problem? ¿What is the problem? I think that internet is the best way to share information. The possibilities are endless. Sometimes the connection time is excessive.
I think it's not addiction spend a lot of time online. Some people like players of Leagueof Leyends or Call of Duty play online is him job like the graphics designer, spend a lot of time on the PC or online is him job.
I think that internet is not a adicction because you can use it for do a lot of things (search information, play online games, do a job...) but some people can´t live if the don't use intenet because they are nervous and rares but when they are on internet they are fine. This the adicction internet is not a adidction.
I think you there are persons who are addicted to the computer. The computer is very useful today, for it works, as way of communication. The problem is when you cannot pass without.There are people who prefers chatear that to be speaking in person with his friends.
From my point of view, internet is a good way to share information, to communicate with your friends, listening to music...But we have to control the time which we spend on it, if we don't do it, it could be a big problem, we can become addicted! We can use the internet for studying, for example, but we can't be connected all day, because it isn't good and we have a real life where we can play football, go shopping, meet friends..Trust me, it's more interesting!!
In my opinion internet is a very good tool to know what is happening around the world, but also you can create an addiction in which you need to connect to the network that makes you forget the rest of your life for example your family or your friends.
Hello, I think that use the internet in a good way isn´t bad and the internet have many good things. But when you use internet for many hours a day and you can´t leave it for go to have lunch or something like that, you have a problem. If you feel the need to be always connected in a social network or playing online games, you are addicted.
In my opinion internet its very usefull for search news,sports,games,places,buy online and more.But has dangerous things like spys,hackers and much more things.
Im agree with Luis because internet is very usefull and is very addictive because it has many interesting things like the videogames,news,information and other thinks but you can have serious problems and i think that the online games is it the she most addictive.
I think internet is a good tool, but have their good things and bad things.
Also for me it is a tool that you can use it to play online...
And I agree with Luis and Víctor.
