هل تستطيع العيش بدون الانترنت؟

Hello and welcome to BBC Xtra English!

A survey of 16 to 24 year olds by the online youth charity YouthNet has found that 75% of them feel that they "couldn't live" without the internet.

The report also found out that four out of five young people use the internet to look for advice.

About one third added that they felt no need to talk to a person face to face about their problems because of the resources available online.

Despite high-profile examples of internet security breaches, such as email scams, 76% of the survey group thought the internet was a safe place "as long as you know what you're doing".

Open University psychologist Graham Jones said that he thinks "children, teenagers and people under their mid-20s have grown up with technology and they understand it deeply".

We asked students in London if they could survive without the internet.

One of them said that he couldn't survive without the internet at all and without the internet he just wouldn't be himself.

Another said that he could live without the internet, but why would he want to?

The survey, funded by the Nominet Trust - a charity that encourages the safe use of the internet - looked at how the web influences the well-being of people aged between 16 and 24.

The author of the report, Professor Michael Hulme of Lancaster University, said that for young people "the internet is part of the fabric of their world and does not exist in isolation from the physical world."

The internet is non stop of all branches of knowledge; therefore I can't stop using it for my studies or for my work.

Teenager, youth and children survive on the new technology; one of the most important is the internet so it's so hard to live without the new generation of communication and informative era. The youth can found the information very easy by clicking on a button; they can found each other’s and exchange the experience.
The internet not considers only as a new technology but it's the new world for us, every day we explore the new and add more to this world by ourselves.

To answer this big question we need to make a small introduction about the difference between human and animals, animals can live if its biologique conditions of life are present . in contrast , people can die just for emotional reasons and that's why we see many people suicide, and now internet become a new soul for our life.
