What do you like about the internet?
The best things about the Internet to me are: easy access to any kind of information, convenient and fast ways to communicate and online shopping. What about you?
I like the Internet because it helps people to communicate through big distances
However, it seems many people are losing their ability to communicate with others face by face. Do you think some of the features I mentioned above have their dark side?
I think the easy access to the internet allows people not to remember an important information,and because of that people know less than they would know without the access. What do you think about it?

I think the easy access to the internet allows people not to remember important information,and because of that people know less than they would know without the access. What do you think about it?
That's true, especially for pupils and students who can get any formula, date, etc., from the Web now. On the other hand, this feature helps us avoid overloading our memory with information whose importance is just temporary.
I quite often buy things through the Internet at a more affordable price, and I've never met problems. Do you see any cons of that?
Internet shops shouldn't pay a rent for space and because of that often prices in the shops are low,but often people are get fooled there.Sometimes criminals make fake internet shops to steal customer payment information.Has it ever happened with you?
It hasn't, fortunately. But such dangers cause us to be less naive and keeps us on our toes. Do you take any security measures on the internet?
Yes, I always try to follow basic rules of internet safety.I don't connect to sites I don't trust. How do you keep yourself save in the Internet?
I do the same thing as you do. One more advantage of the Internet to me is its great file storage capacity. So now I don't have to worry about the lack of my hard disk space. Do you use this feature?
I don't really use it, because I don't have much files to storage.But I agree with you that the feature is very usefull. Do you have any social network? What social network do you like the most?
I'm on Facebook and VK. VK is more convenient for me to use. However, about a year ago I was blocked for suspicious activity, which I was not actually involved in. So, social networks have their weaknesses too. What is your experience with social networks?
I use social networks but I'm not a fan of them because they make me spend my time uselessly.What do you do to not waste your time in social networks?
I do not do anything special as I am not addicted to social networks. I believe that access to education is one of the main advantages of the Internet. But the problem here is a large number of low-quality sources of information. Do you know any tips on how to find quality sources?
I agree that it's a big problem of the Internet. I believe that you can find high-quality sources of information by using recommendations from forums of the topic you interested in. What is your way of finding good sources of information?
Using forum recommendations is a good idea. I do it a lot, but Internet surfing is still the primary means of searching for information for me. What do you think about dating apps? Do they do more good or harm?
I don't know whether they do harm or not but I think that the apps are not so effective as they are described because people there have high demands to other people who use the apps and because of that they don't find anyone. What is your opinion about the apps?
I've never used them, but I believe such apps are the best choice for many people, especially for those who feel too much anxiety about dating in real life. Have you heard of the Internet of things? It's a new rapidly developing tech trend when more and more objects around us are hooking up to the Internet forming a single network. Do you think it'll make our lives more pleasant and convenient? Or maybe there are hidden dangers lurking in this trend?
I haven't heard about it. Of course it will make our lives more convenient, but it also dangerous because anything that is connected to the Internet can be hacked. It's hard to say what criminals can do with the hacked objects because I don't know exactly what objects we're talking about. What do you think about the trend? Do you have positive or negative opinion on this?
This process seems to be inevitable and will affect everyone. I hope experts will be able to patch security holes to prevent cyber attacks by criminals. To summarize, I think the pros of the Internet outweigh its cons. What would you say?
I agree with you. I think almost all people agree to cope with the cons because of the pros.
