Nowadays, in this globalization era, internet becomes a most important things to all people in this world because more simple to find information with friend know about news and easy to tell everything only through their fingers so it easier for using all time. Mostly in the world are using the internet but some people is not use properly. Everything in this world almost use internet, but certain people in this world abuse of the facility and sometimes a certain people become addicted to internet. if you use internet correctly you will get a benefits of using internet. Other than that, the teenagers usually use the internet for unuseful act like watching pornographic, video games and social media by using their phone, computer or laptop. This is one of the reason why people always using internet by searching and watching unuseful video. Therefore three causes of internet addiction will be explain in this essay which is, social causes, variety activities on the internet, and depression
Firstly, causes of internet addiction is, social causes certain people become addicted to the internet because of social connections, people nowadays almost have a relationship and always contact each other by using internet through online chat, or anything convenience have in this world because of that, some people has been addicted to the internet, many people have relationship but certain people become addicted to the internet. The long distance relationship usually they use internet for contact each other, this is one of easy way to keep in touch and that why they has been addicted to the internet. Sometimes internet is good for them when they use wisely. Some people receive advice from internet or some applications for relax their mind. But when a person has many close online friends and no one to count on in the real world, problems can develop. The effect of social causes is when someone addicted to the internet they will lack of sleep caused they just use internet by phone or computer all the time, this effect will affected to our health and will get eye damage.
Secondly, causes of internet addiction is, variety activities on internet many useful things to use in the internet but not at all is beneficial in internet. Many causes that people today become addicted to the internet as an example of addicted to pornographic, online games, gambling, shopping or anything else. As a result they will waste their time because they always spend their time with internet. For example Michigan State University’s Olin Health Centre reported in 2006 that 18.5 percent of students admitted their academic performance suffered because of excessive Internet use. Because of addicted to the internet students will not pay attention to their studies. Furthermore the students will ignore their studies and keep playing games or so on till they lack of sleep, when they lack of sleep that is not good for brain. They will sleepy in class.
Last but not least, causes of internet addiction is depression in some cases people become addicted to the internet because of depression, just a certain people depressed turn to drug or alcohol, a lot of fun experiences that help someone in depression become happy they will use internet to their self to be happy they will search anything what can give happiness to them. When a depressed person turns to the Internet to socialize, I am not at all surprised that they use it for social interaction in chat rooms and on social network websites. People who are depressed do not want to socialize, but the Internet makes it so much easier to do it. It may make a depressed individual feel more “connected” and help them make it happy through every day with their depression. For example, a child has a problem and her parents cannot give attention to her and she will find friends via the internet. Actually this is not a great way to use the internet if not using the internet properly it will give worse effect to internet users. People in depression must be guide. We should not to ignore them because they need a listener to listen about the problem or the stories.
The conclusion of all this topic, we as a user internet in this world should know how to use internet correctly because if use internet wrongly it will give a worse effect to user. Other than drug or alcohol addiction, internet addiction is also danger to those who are addicted, as a user we must avoid the causes that will give someone addicted to internet such as, social causes, variety activities in the internet and depression this causes also make someone has been addicted, internet addiction also can give effect to human health like eye damage, obesity, body fitness or anything else because when someone who are addicted will spend their time with internet than spend their time with family or exercise. If use internet correctly you will get a benefits of using internet
