英検 準1級ライティング サンプル①「インターネット」

Agree or disagree: The Internet has made people more socially isolated.

(同意する?しない?:インターネットは人々をもっと社会で孤立させた。)

I do not agree with the idea that the Internet has made people more socially isolated.

There are two reasons to support my opinion.

First, nowadays people like to play video games which players can be connected and talk to one another while playing. Video games used to be played alone or a few people at most. However, thanks to the advent of the Internet, people who live far apart can play the same game together.

Secondly, social media play a great role in connecting people. People can easily keep in touch by using the social media such as Facebook, twitter, and many others. They made it easier for us to get to know how our old friends are doing. 

For these reasons, I do not think that the Internet has made people more socially isolated.
