How dangerous is the Internet



The title of this article is to be understood in the context of relevance. For instance searching for information concerning places to eat or museums to visit in New York, London or Paris the internet answers immediate questions. Communication is perhaps the best medium through the internet – emails, VoIP (voice over internet protocol) IM (instant messaging) and social media tools are the best technological development in the 21st Century. The world and people are connected instantly; with 5 g networks in the offing the future looks promising. 



However that being said there is a dark side to the internet. As powerful as the instant forms of communication the internet also allows unfiltered and unchecked information to flow. At first glance because of the information overload some register in our minds and some do not. In fact a majority of the news feed do not register for more than a few seconds. The problem arises when the threshold of a few seconds grows into double digit and more so when the same information is repeated.

Example of Robert Sussman’s journey on the Internet

An example of this unchecked material is the Robert Sussman Telemarketing scam. Very few people are aware of who Robert Sussman is? Unless you are contemplating to utilize your timeshare ownership and have a listing with Robert Sussman Rent or Sell Company. 

Robert Sussman Vacation Tree is a company promoted by Robert.  Robert’s telemarketers help timeshare owners to list their property while also facilitating buyers to get in touch. The internet is a great enabler for such businesses. 

So coming back to the title of the article you can say that the Internet is dangerous. Based on the information provided Robert Sussman should have closed shop and gone to pasture. That he lives, breathes and is fighting fit and successful informs that all of the above allegations are baseless and unfounded. The lesson here is not to treat the Internet as the Holy Grail. It is not the be all and end all of information.
