The internet has created distance rather than closeness. People hide behind their devices and peer out at the world with little to no actual involvement. Children are growing up with technology and losing the socialization that used to be prevalent when parents took them to community activities instead of buying them games or tablets. Bullying used to be a face to face torment, but it has escalated to the web which is often much worse because of the lack of repercussions. While it should be seen as a great resource to learn about other cultures, it is often misused by those seeking to be cruel.

I have yet to see much culture from the Internet. I have learned about other cultures, but the anonymity of the Internet has created more and worse bullies.

It’s absolutely right. The Internet has created a modern life and modern life leads us to use more electronic equipment everywhere and it may harm the traditional culture. For example, a country has some traditional dances with slow body movement but the internet can show us break dance. Can you imagine the traditional dances replaced by modern dances?
