The Internet has become one of the greatest tools of mankind. It allows us to access so much information, learn about so many things, and do so many things just with a couple of clicks of the mouse. One aspect of the Internet that has become a huge part of society today is online shopping. Shopping online has become so established that there’s is even a day dedicated to online shopping: cyber Monday. The convenience of being able to shop online is hugely convenient, but can be extremely damaging. The convenience is so great, people are willing to avoid social interaction all together. One of my friends would rather order food, clothes, books, and many other things from home rather than interacting in stores in public. Going out in public can be frustrating, however giving into online shopping all of the time can impair ones ability to meet new people and overall to communicate throughout society efficiently.
