What would the world be like without the Internet?

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

It’s been reported that the majority of people in this world are on social media 40% of their day! So what would we do without the Internet?

Most of the time the Internet is very helpful, no argument there but, on the other hand, it’s quite nice to zone out and be without the Internet and actually interact with the world!

In 2000, Harvard Law School professor Lawrence Lessig predicted ‘the Internet would become an apparatus that tracks our every move, erasing important aspects of privacy and free speech in our lives’. Many will now agree with this!

In our opinion, we think that the Internet is a great place to learn and find out things, but it can also lead to people getting upset about what they have seen.

To find out what people would do without it, we interviewed some fellow pupils. Here’s what they said:

    Great article! I hope they don’t get rid of the internet. I don’t think I’ll be able to cope but if they do get rid of the internet, people wouldn’t know what’s out there!
