The internet is replacing the book as a source of information

Over the last few decades, the expansion of the internet has caused an utter revolution in the way people learn about things, replacing books as a source of information. In my view, there are both advantages and drawbacks to this fact.

On the one hand, the amount of data that users can find on the internet is massive, much bigger than in books. Furthermore, a great deal of this information is free, whereas you need to buy books.

On the other hand, the quick extension of the internet has led to the problem that non-professional people are able to give their opinion about anything. As a result, users can´t tell whether what they´re reading has been written by a journalist or an expert on the topic, or by a mere blogger.

Personally, I believe that we need to be really careful with what we read online, and that we must contrast every piece of information. As I see it, books will be always the most reliable source of information.
