Computers surround our world and they are an inseparable part of our lives. Today, every home usually has more than one computer, and that’s without considering tablets. We are available at all times and a world of information is laid out before us with a simple push of a button. Information prevented from publication on television channels or in newspaper articles easily finds its way to the internet.

Like everything in life, the internet also has its many positive sides, but also its negative sides that can hurt the people around us without us noticing.
