The Facts of present life

From RM Datuk Husin Jazri of Cybersafe speech; he mentioned that about 17 million is the active users of internet in Malaysia and Dato' Siti Zaleha of BTP added that 11 percent (1,870,000) of the internet active users is in the age category of 13 to 15 years old. Only one percent in the age category of 50's. The hours taken to use the internet daily is about 14 hours daily-it so time consuming.

The issue here is who are going to monitor this 11 percent of young generation in handling the "internet" activity as internet could be harmful and could be beneficial. Government has taken steps to have a proper agency to educate these young generation like MOE together with MOSTI which has Cybersafe itself. Parents, teachers, peers and the youngsters themselves should have aware about the phenomena. Otherwise internet could bring more harm than good.
