1 Corinthians 13: 1 & 13

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Letter to the Editor about the overuse of online social networking site (Choi On Kiu Liana 5B)

Dear Editor,


I am writing to express my point of view of the overuse of online social networking site.


Nowadays, having Internet access at home is a very common thing. Many people can own a computer at home. Also, because of the improvement in technology, it brings a lot of convenience and efficiency to users. For example, we can find a lot of different information around the world by searching the Internet. We can find news that happened in different countries. Also, we can talk and share new things to our family member who live in another country by using Skype.

 Because of this, people spend more time on using computer. Some of us will also spend a whole day on using computer without taking a rest. It leads to a problem of the overuse in society. And the number of overuse in network sites is increasing.

In addition, overusing the networking site will waste our time because we spend most of the time on it. On the other hand, we will only have less time on our parents to figure out our problem on study or social life. It will cause direct arguments.

I think parents should have more outdoor activities with their children, to sidetrack their mind.

Finally, school will be a better place to teach students to stop overusing computer, because student learn things there, so I think teachers should ogranise some activities or talks on telling the disadvantages of the overuse of doing other things like homework or projects, etc. So I think we should have a time management to balance the time on using computer and daily work. Having a timetable, we can manage your time on using computer in a more specific way, so that we will not spend too much time on using the network in an uncontrolled way.

In addition, overusing the Internet will destroy your relationship with friends and family members. It is because we spend most of the time using the net, we will have no time on building relationship with them.

In short, we should stop students on overusing networking site, because it will lead a big problem in our society. It is education that we need to foster this belief within our society.

Yours faithfully,

Chris Wong
