Internet. It can be such a wonderful place,right? You can search for information,video’s on how to ace that recipe,funny videos, educational videos (yeah,I’m not gonna list all the kinds of videos you can watch😅). You can even go online shopping or do online schooling. You can also search for different locations or Skype with that family member or friend that you haven’t seen in a while. So the internet can be a good thing. A helpful thing too.


But there is a dark side to the web. A dark side that is messing with peoples lives. It is because of this dark side that many parents do not let their kids have phones. The web is as big and deep as the ocean and if you fully utilize it,you’ll find out more things that you usually wouldn’t. It ranges from bad to worse to anything worse than worse.


Sure, the internet is a good thing. But once you learn about all the disgusting things happening,you might just get goosebumps.


The dark side of the web ranges from hacking, trolling, spamming,porn,human trafficking and all that urghh stuff. But I’m not gonna get into that right now. Today,we are only going to cover two things that happen on the internet,in the open. Trolling and spamming.


Trolling

To me,it is really disgusting how someone can hide behind their device and make others feel bad – just for the fun of it. Like that is cowardness (is that a word?) on another level. I can’t say I know how people who have experienced this feel cause I’ve never experienced this before. But it is happening and it is getting really serious. It is really sad cause some people are killing themselves because of these trolls😒. Trolls that make people feel like they’re not good enough. What’s worse is that most of these trolls look so pathetic (no that’s rude😅)weak? Timid? (What’s the right word to use that doesn’t make me look rude😅🤷‍♀️?). They don’t look like the tuffest person around, yet they wanna harass people😒.


Spamming

🙆‍♀️🙆‍♀️🙆‍♀️Have we not all experienced this? Maybe you’ve experienced it but you don’t even know it. There are different types of spam,but I’ll be mentioning two.


1.Email spam


I have not experienced this before but I’m sure there are people who have. A series of different emails are sent from unknown sources and it is difficult to trace the sender. How did you get my email address though🤔? These people use some really strong magic😅🙆‍♀️(kidding). But if they can get our email addresses then technology is bad!


2.Instant messaging spam


There we go. This is the one nearly everyone is a victim of. I’m on the list this time😅. What is all this you could be a winner too nonsense? Please,did I ask to be a winner? Those messages are so irritating but please,PLEASE don’t fall for them. These scammers use the information you give them to “win” to scam you. I’ve studied this phishing thing so you’re getting good advice here,don’t fall for it,please. These people are not even ashamed of what they’re doing.


In conclusion,the internet is a nice place but it can be dangerous. Very dangerous. So be smart and be safe❤.
