While the Internet has helped to shape society in many positive ways it has also been a source of negative influence for many people today. The Internet has provided many outlets for individuals who are no longer able to be involved face to face with others and provided opportunities to stay in contact with others that live long distance and of course the opportunities to meet new people. The Internet is an information highway, it is used to educate people, help businesses thrive and has helped create an entire new marketplace for both businesses and the individual.
While it has had many positive influences it has changed the individual personality. It has made society more impatient and impulsive whether dealing with business, family, or the material, it has given a mind set of "I want it now." The Internet can be an outlet for undesirable behavior such as the creation of false identities and a life of lies, or a life of cheating. Today many use the Internet in means of finding a partner outside of the current relationship. Infidelity by means of the Internet has led to an increase of marital dissolution and other forms of relationships.
