Abstract

Research on the impact of the internet on educated users was conducted online survey of 126 respondents who were internet users. Descriptive Statistical Analysis is used to explain the results of this study which are presented in tables, and qualitative discussions. The survey results show that respondents who use the internet correctly have a positive impact on them, but poor internet users have a negative impact on them. Some beneficial effects for the right internet users are as a source of searching for knowledge, communication media, exchanging data, and facilitating business transactions. On the other hand, the internet also has a negative impact if it is not used properly such as being addicted to adult content, affected by cruel and sadistic actions, fraud, stealing credit card codes, gambling and online addiction, and instant work. Growing ethical education when interacting on the internet with religious values can make them use the internet for positive things.Promoting that internet for negative things can be legally punished by the law on information technology and electronic transactions.
