The computer has many positive sides - it is a valuable source of information. Since the internet took off it has provided us with the ability to instantly access all sorts of information that is vital for our everyday lives, from the news and sport to weather and bus timetables. We can find countless bits of information on all sorts of subjects and material regarding our own lives and careers and even interact with people via social media like Facebook and Twitter. These networking websites are an amazing way to keeping in touch and stay connected with friends and family.

On the other hand there are bad things about the computer. Things such as paedophilia and the distribution of indecent material and images pose a lot of security risks to users. The threat of viruses which infect your system and steal your personal data is also dangerous. This could lead to things such as theft of your bank details and other personal information that you might have saved on your computer. The dangers posed by those who write viruses  steal personal details or hack into your wireless networks are a real cause for concern in today's society, where almost everything is integrated with the internet in some way or another.

The good effects brought about by the technological enhancements of computer is that it helps you minimize your time in research. However, there are sites that are unreliable. So, better consult the library. Another thing is that it expands our horizon in socializing. It makes the world smaller and just within reach... Although computers are quiet useful, they still employ bad effects such as they promote violence among children who are hooked in playing online games. They also widen the array of possibilities of scams and others.

Computer is a device of new technology. Technology can be used both for good or bad. If you use computer for your studies or making applications in your office. You are doing a productive work. If you use the computer to see prone websites and to make fraud with the people, you are using it for bad. On the other hand the bad effects of computer is that your eyes can be effected if you see the monitor for longer period of time.

The bad things about computers are that it can lead to wearing glasses and it can also be really  and you will hardly ever move from the computer. It can also lead to being obese because you will be sitting around all day on the computer and not outside in the fresh air.

But the good things are it is good experience and can learn you loads, such as computer studies, and even if you just look something up rather than read a book you still learn something.

To a great extent I think the computers have negatively affected our social life. We have become more busy with the incorporation of computer technology in our lives. For example, a child prefers to spend five to six hours on computer but he may not want to give much time to his family. Computers can also badly affect our health. Computers can also badly affect our vision because eyes are directly exposed to the computer radiations. It can cause repetitive strain injuries and it can also create many other psychological problems. People who excessively use computers are usually lazy people because they are not involved in active physical activities. In this way computers have a great impact on our social life and psychological behavior.

Computer is a technology without which one cannot imagine to live without in today's world may it be easy data storage or simply online chatting and blogging.
This 21st century wonder box can be very disadvantageous in several aspects. The main one being that it worsens ones eyesight, it can result in blurred vision, cause excessive strain on the eyes, make refocusing slow, result in color distortion and double vision.
Other than this too much use of the computer can make your back muscles sore and give you neck and/or backaches. People who are frequent users of the computer can also suffer from migraine.
Excessive computer usage can make you gain weight and make you obese as when one keeps on sitting in front of the computer he/she gets no exercise, people also have their food in front of the computer hence getting up of their seat very less.
Therefore even in today's highly technological world one should be careful while using gadgets such as the computer for its negative effects.
