However, this has also come with its share of fluffs. Currently the buzzing conversation is of a 16-year-old boy who was reported to have committed suicide in their house in Kamukunji, Nairobi, after playing an online game – Blue Whale- that encourages one to take his life. While this calls for parents to keep abreast with their children’s online activities, it is equally important for the youth to learn how to make good use of the Internet, as it here to stay. Here are some ways you can do it.
Acquire new knowledge and skills
At a time when many youth complain of lack of jobs and internship opportunities, one can find numerous opportunities on the Internet. If well used the Internet can help enhance creativity, learn news skills and keep abreast with market trends. You-tube channels offer lots of tutorials that one can use to acquire a skill of their interest.
Earn some money
There are many opportunities to make money online such as online writing, social media management for brands and digital strategist for online businesses among others. Most online jobs can be done from the comfort of one’s home, as they mainly require a laptop and Internet. So what are you waiting for?
You can use your social media pages to market your merchandise for sale or on behalf of others and earn a commission from every sale you make. Marketing on social media is enough to help you create awareness and build a business. Once you offer quality merchandise and are ready to deliver the products you are in business!
Get some entertainment
Once in a while take a break and enjoy life. And what cheaper way to do so than to stream music or movies and get some good, healthy and affordable entertainment? Even without a TV at your home, you can still keep yourself informed and entertained through the Internet. Just have limits as too much of anything is poisonous.
