The Consequences of Internet Dependency
How is technology changing the world? While there a million possible answers, we focused on four narratives that tell the stories of some of the most controversial and troubling aspects of the internet.

It has become one of the most essential aspects of our modern day society.
In this section of our site you will find investigations grappling with the complexities of the four narratives:
- internet privacy
- confirmation bias on the internet
- internet fraud/crimes
- empathy loss due to abuse of technology.
Technology and the internet have become a gigantic part of day to day human life. This drastic change in habit and development between this generation and the last is rarely covered in mainstream news because large monopolies have hidden interest in preventing the public from knowing what the internet is doing to our society. Therefore we have done our best to compile and analyze the information we found to present the topic in a way that demonstrates how the internet can be a useful tool which benefits our society while displaying information which contradicts, and shows some not so positive effects of internet use.
