Introduction

The internet is a new world created by humans. Often created to escape reality, to have fun, to do damage and much more. This new world will help us to meet new people, to be successful and know many things unknown to many.But be careful because as well as going to help you can really hurt you.

You must learn to have fun in this world with the necessary precautions, because as in real life, if you're not careful you may suffer much damage.
