You could also argue that the internet is misused in that whenever someone uses it, they are likely to sign into PokeCommunity, Facebook or Twitter.
I guess the Internet is a useful resource for information but it has certainly affected our level of concentration.
We need concentration to be high enough to efficiently concentrate. If we can't concentrate then we can't understand and take new things in.
People, in general, don't know how to use the Internet properly anyway. YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Google and Wikipedia are key sites for any average internet user. If not, THE only sites some people know of. It's a matter of understanding how to use the Internet too, and being capable of searching for and finding new information.
It's not the Internet, it's the people. Some people just don't know how to use the Internet.
