Is Being Able to Find Information Quickly Online a Good or a Bad Thing?
Have you ever pondered over the above question? What do you think? I give my opinion in this article. So read on.
Here are a few pointers on why I think it is a good idea:
- Say, you want to look up the meaning of a word or its synonyms. Instead of the old-fashioned way of looking it up in a physical dictionary, you can look it up online and quickly use it in the creative document you are preparing. It has saved you minutes, and you can use those free minutes the obsolete dictionary would have taken up to do something else more significant.
- There is infinite information you can look up online this way. For instance, your little sick child needs to be taken to the hospital. You can find the right hospital in your area by a quick search.
- You need some information in coding your current project. You can look it up online and integrate it in your coding to solve the issue easily.
- Your laptop has got locked up after you have forgotten its password. You can look up online after reformatting your laptop on how to set it up to unlock your laptop even if you have forgotten its password. Similarly, with a modern smart phone, you can get locked out because you have forgotten its password. You have done the settings already inside the phone by looking up online; so you can easily unlock it.
- If you are going to have a new child in the family, you can easily look up girls’ or boys’ modern names and select one together with your spouse and have a fun time while you do it.
- If you want to purchase something big at Wall Mart, you may want to know its price before you can go there and order it. The information is more-or-less handy online and you can easily look at its varieties and their prices and finally select one.
- You can shop online from the comfort of your home be it a book, dress, shoe, kitchen utensil or laptop. You just have to choose among the widely available ones, order and have them delivered at your doorstep.
Summing up, looking up information quickly online has been a life saver for all of us globally. Especially, in moments of the ongoing pandemic, we have started to rely more on online information, ordering amenities, looking up words to write creative books, coding for projects while working from home, which are just a few to name among hundreds of benefits. Gotcha?
