How to use the Internet properly

This is a guide on Internets and how to use it properly!

Hansen's insight:

Hello! If you are a beginner to the Internet, this is the blog post for YOU!

 

First of all, you need to know which progammes on your computer can surf the Internet (surfing is another word for using). You can have the Internet Explorer, Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. The Firefox is the MOST commonly used programme to use the Internet.

 

Make sure your Internet connection is on, as you cannot surf the Internet without connection (obviously). You can also use Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, but the Explorer is enough.

 

Then, do you see that box over there? The box on top of the screen, that is.

Click on it. No, it won't kill you, but it will let you choose your website by typing the address, (e.g www.scoop.it).

 

Still with me? Good. Now, you are in a website. There are many buttons on the website, like Log in, or Sign up, or even, See your posts! 

 

Be careful, though, there are some frauds or VERY VICIOUS TRICKS OUT THERE! The Internet has a dark side to it, like the Force in Star Wars (for you Star Wars fans out there :P) You may see an advertistment. But don't be fooled by it. It may contain viruses that can attack your computer and make it spoiled, I guess. Do not trust advertistments that say 'Collect prizes right now!' or anything of the sort.

 

My name is Hansen, this is my Internet guide and I bid you farewell! :D

Hansen's insight:

The Internet. A place of wonder, happiness and of course, gaming. The Internet has MANY things to explore. But, there is a darker side to it. My name is Hansen, and I am going to share with you, the Disadvantages and advantages of the Internet, or the Interwebs, whatever you want to call it.

 

THE ADVANTAGES:

 

1. The Internet is a good source of knowledge (on certain websites only) and, if used properly, it is full of goodies.

 

2. The Internet is a good de-stressor. Under the pressure of examinations or tests of sorts, a website with videos (such as YouTube) can de-stress a person. He or she may search for funny videos to entertain that person.

 

THE DISADVANTAGES:

 

1. The Interwebs can be filled to the brim with frauds and tricks. These people offer you things, such as milk, or even money. See that 'I was paid by Google for $500' advertisments? DO NOT TRUST IT! It may ask you to do a survey and you may think, 'What's a good quiz ever done to me?'. Well, in the survey, they WILL ask you for your addresses, phone numbers, and Full Name. That means, they can track you down and kidnap you, or even worse, murder you.

 

2. 'Download it for free! You need to do a survey to prove that you are actually a human!' THAT IS FAKE! If you actually did the survey and downloaded the file, it may contain a computer virus that will immediately kill all the systems in your computer. Such viruses are the Trojan Horse virus and most commonly, the Search Engine Hijacker. The Search Engine Hijacker changes your Search Engine (Google) to a bad-quality one, such as DeltaSearch or Ask.com.
