Practical Internet building more powerful societies around the world. And this is biggest positive. But in the same time, the power of the internet is misused by the people, companies. And the privacy of internet users is the biggest negative for society.
Globally connected people are now more than a society. I call it robotic society. Internet affects society as soon as it tries to meet the personal and business desires. Internet is impacting society in between personal, social, economic and political development activities.
Society is influenced by educational resources, social media websites, web application, shopping sites, online business, internet marketing, research and automation of social skills positively and negatively. We can’t imagine a happier day without using the internet in our daily life. Why, because there are so many uses of the internet in our daily life.
That’s why the excessive use without the basic knowledge of computer and internet will make us physically and mentally unfit.
That’s the biggest negative impact of the internet on our society and especially in a new generation. They say that WhatsApp and Facebook are the best places to connect with friends. In our time 15 to 20 years ago it was not the case. Technically they mean the love robots more than people. And you know robots are still experimenting to get some feeling. But that’s the challenge for human intelligence from the artificial algorithm.
Yes, you can do various productive things on the internet. I always say that the Internet is a boon for us, if we use it with good intentions then it will be very beneficial for each other.

Negative impact of internet on society
The Internet is very important for this new generation in the society. Internet-connected societies growing faster than offline groups of people. One people don’t know what problems his neighbors are facing but he/she is providing a solution to overseas. That’s the negative impact of the internet on society. In which we don’t care about the environment, physically activates, family and relations. We know how to communicate with robots such as Google search engine, but don’t know how to communicate with parents and kids.
The Internet is creating robotic societies. A society with hybrid skills doing like, comments but doesn’t have feelings and own impact on his/her social shares. This can be the negative impact of the internet on society. The negative use of internet in society only possible, because the lack of knowledge, how to use? When to use? It’s really important to guide kids, students, and teens from childhood.
The Internet is a network of online connected servers, desktop computers, laptop and mobile phones. And societies are now inside this internet network. We all want to get out from the internet but we can’t able to take some time out to our families.
Without internet and computer knowledge it’s tough to get even a computer operator job after a degree. That’s why schools around the world teaching students computer and internet skills. Even they are using the computer and the internet to teach.
The Internet is transforming the social transactions by the use of the internet. Best wishes, happy birthday wishes or happy marriage anniversary to gift cards such things are now sent by the use of the internet.
Impact of internet politics on the society
The Internet is also helping the politicians to infect the society by dividing the unity of people by producing communalism and casteism material on the internet. Producers of communalism and casteism in the society never develop the society. But they use it to get votes and favor of people in the election.
Societies are also affected around the globe by such kind of group of people on the internet. The new words of such people are “fan”. This is called “Bhakt” in the society. You can find 2-3 Bhakts always in a group of the meeting where social development meeting is happening. You can’t talk about negatively about their GOD’s on the internet. Society is bound to support Individualism. Society is in the trap of dilemma on the internet. Societies will be becoming handicapped very soon if such political practices not ignored by people.
Society is where everyone feels safe from child to girls and women’s. But our society is living a digital life. Internet dazzled the eyes of society and it’s very tough to decide right and wrong on the internet.
Social and personal safety on the internet
There are so many inappropriate materials on social media sites and internet. Such material I don’t think will be good for children, teenagers. There are so many hacking information and data on the internet. Even children’s are hacking the websites today.
Privacy and internet security of the society are the biggest concern for people very soon.
There is nothing about privacy on the internet. It’s very tough even for the government of various countries to protect user’s privacy.
We’re using various apps in mobile and you know that 90% of apps ask your permission or give access to use your photos, contacts and other data. You don’t have other option to install the apps on the phone if you don’t want to do that.
This is the biggest challenge for the society to do mobile banking and cashless transactions. Because the data is compromised by such company and there is no guarantee that you’re safe or not. When government websites are hacked, when big companies websites are hacked then installing small money apps on the mobile by reading fake reviews cannot possible to be hacked?
It’s very easy for hackers to hack mobile, internet banking and money wallets. Because you don’t have options, you see various eye-catching links on the internet Facebook and Whatsapp etc. Not all links you click and access the applications on the internet are safe. When accounts of political parties are hacked then what you think about common people in the society.
So it’s very tough to be safe on the internet. But who care? No one has time, society is busy in the religion controversies and superstition activities.
Human intelligence versus Artificial Intelligence
Intelligent people of the society sitting at homes and fools are showing the society that they are intelligent and getting the votes. Ministers are busy in stakes in speeches.
Experts are busy in the debates on news channel. Completed degree students are busy in finding jobs.
Professionals are always near to deadlines. People like you and me working on daily wages and living a city life far away from village and parents. We’re busy in earning money to able to pay rent to house owner each month. Then who think about the society. Senior citizen?
We are showing our DESH BAHKTI on the internet. In the public view on the internet we’re ultimate with our professional profiles but in real life. You know that. Sharing Desh Bhakti and inspiring other people is good, but we can plant some new trees, or clean water sources too.
Everything is controlled by the internet in the society. And who have control have more power and money to change the lives of people in the society. Such as social media network almost deleted the offline social activities.
The Internet makes up the societies and after that, it’s looking modern. But at the end of the day when internet makeup on the society is clear then everyone come back to his family and friends. And try to live a life of a human in which he/she got a piece of mind and happiness.
Internet impact on society is like an environmental change for people. Everyone read and talk about but who care?
The Internet is a loop in which people are doing things that matter the soul most.
Internet impacted everything in the society from students to teachers, Entrepreneurs to clients, sellers to buyers and human to robots. Now one is remained untouched without a technology. Even when a 3-month child cries his/her mother play songs or videos in the mobile, kids stop crying and start smiling. This is amazing. You can say it’s positive or negative. But I have to say that it’s necessity in this time. And I consider only productive uses of the internet. And I am more in the favor of environmental and nature development. But we all need to think seriously about our nature in which we can plant a new tree, improve water sources etc.

So, it’s true that internet affected the society negatively by the use internet.
Bright side of internet in such negative social impact
But this is not the case with the all the people on the internet. Some society’s developed new uses of the internet in daily life for human desires. There are so many websites, blogs, search engines where people help each other in career and business development. Communities, forums, freebies and open source are live on the internet for people to the people.
Solutions to protect society from negative impact of internet
Society is not that much internet and computer literate. They need to learn to get the benefits of internet safely. The common people of society don’t take too much burden to think about it. They are influenced and hypnotize by the community of Bhakts on the internet.
But what are the solutions that help society to live again? How we can redirect the society on correct domains. What things if we do each other can make a change, a change that is innovative, environment-friendly and based on trust.

People like you and me and our family friends, relatives, neighbors and their friends etc. each of us is connected with each other for something that I call society. We all are society and we have to think about it. You can be disagreeing and it’s your right.

Maybe we all are robots but we’re capable of doing the things that can help the society, people in their business and career development. No matter how bad society is influenced by the internet, but people like you and me can play our role. The role is not defined by algorithms, it is defined by our parents, teachers and after self-analysis.
Believe in God and keep growing on the natural foundation.
