Dangers of the internet

benefits and dangers of the internet

ICTs (Information and Communication Technologies) give the feeling of immediacy and that there are no limits, and communicating through them can sometimes be complex because it does not facilitate the development of empathy. But there are other major dangers in which children and adolescents can be involved: among them, the loss of control over their own privacy, the excessive use of screens, different types of violence on the Internet and addictions to games or online gambling.

For this reason, the guide recommends being aware of the importance of one’s own privacy, taking care of the content that is shared on social networks and reviewing the conditions of applications before using them to be aware of the permissions that are being given.

Any aggression, abuse of power or lack of respect is considered violence, and the networks are not a space free of it. Cyberbullying or bullying through ICTs is a particularly worrying problem because it does not stop at the end of the class but, since it occurs through devices such as cell phones, the victim can suffer it at any time of the day.

Sexting consists of sending insinuating, erotic or pornographic texts or images over the Internet or cell phones. It is a fairly widespread practice among teenagers who, on their own initiative, often send sexting messages to their boyfriends/girlfriends as a proof of affection, to someone they want to flirt with, as a joke, etc. The problem is that this text or image can later be used by the recipient or another stranger to extort or blackmail the victim. This is known as sextortion.
