There is a big influence of technique on our daily life. Electronic devices, multimedia and computers are things we have to deal with every day.
The Internet changed our life enormously; there is no doubt about that. There are many advantages of the Internet that show you the importance of this new medium. What I want to say is that Internet changed our life in a positive way but technology can also backfire.
There are many misuses of internet faced by us in our daily life. Some of them are most common amongst school children include:
