Some think that it is better to get information or advice from other people, while others believe one can get any information or advice from the Internet or books. Discuss both views and give your own opinion

Knowledge
is considered to be a tool that has great power. Some say obtaining
information
from people who we interact from the daily
life
are better when compared to the
information
taken from the world wide web or from the printed material. In my opinion, both of these sources are equally important and relevant to succeed in
life
. On the one hand, critics who are in favour of getting
information
from others would argue that, people from day to day lives can provide us an ample of believable
knowledge
that cannot be found on anywhere else. To elaborate, as humans we always tend to believe
information
obtained from another human being,
this
is mainly due to the emotions, experience and the level of truth attached with that
information
.
For instance
, we would believe something that an ex-convict has to say about the
life
in prison rather than retrieving the same
information
by reading a book.
Similarly
, a story of
life
experiences and hardship being told to us by a parent would have a much stronger attachment and an impact than seeing or hearing from a different source.
On the other hand
, some oppose the above argument and believe that
knowledge
and
information
found in printed media or the web would contain a plethora of
information
. To put differently, the internet has revolutionised the way we work and how we obtain
information
. As long it's from a credible source,
information
found on the internet are extremely reliable and have benefitted an ample of organisations or individuals
such
as, the police, research scientists or even students.
For example
, an online library access provided by my university allowed me access to un-imaginable amount of journals and academic articles,
therefore
, with the help of
this
I was able to successfully complete my final year research. In conclusion, I strongly believe that
information
and
knowledge
obtained from both of these sources are equally important in
life
.
Information
, experiences and lessons obtained from others can always be used to shape your
life
for the better, while
information
retrieved from the internet can be used to improve the overall
knowledge
in a particular area.
However
, on both of these instances the
information
must be from a credible source.
