Hey English community! I have tried to write a short paragraph of text and I am just curious to know if I have good grammar in it. I have read it twice trough and I can't spot any errors. Can you, thanks!
The internet is growing. You are most likely using the internet as a tool to read this text. Nowadays almost everyone is using the internet and a lot of services have been moved online. For instance you can access your bank account, do shopping and send emails online. All the time even more and more essential services are - and will be - transferred to the internet. No one can stop this. Well, why should it be done?
----- The internet has an enormous amount of positive opportunities. It gives its users an access to a practically unlimited database of information. You don’t have to browse a plenty of books in order to find a result of a scientific study, for instance. Nowadays you just need a few keywords and a press of a button. There are a few reasons why the internet is so engaging. One of the biggest reasons must be the fact that humans are social mammals. We love to interact and the internet provides resources for it. You can send messages for free and there isn't any delay. This is called instant messaging. Ordinary letters aren't suitable for our current society anymore because the message doesn't go to its destination instantly. Even phone calls and text messages are already antique because you can send messages quicker via a variety of chat applications. The lack of delay is trendy these days and everything is getting speedier. These social services are also popular because people like to read everyday stories of other people, studies show. Using social media sites is compelling and it’s difficult to say why people love to use the social media.
----- People often establish different habits. When you start using a social service, such as Facebook, you create a habit that the site has to be checked regularly. After a while this habit can transform into an addiction which can lead to a variety of issues. For instance, your real world social skills can get worse.
----- The new way how people can find new friends these days is phenomenal but just to remind you there isn't any visible correlation between online time and the amount of friends. This means, you won’t have more friends just by using the social media but it increases your opportunities to get a new friend.
----- My conclusion is that the internet is a great tool to find and share information, communicate and just to kill time. You should neither forget those dozens of cat videos which you can find online. Without the internet our world wouldn't be as it is today.
The Internet has changed the way we communicate with each other.

Haha, I am really thankful for your advice ;)
I'm not sure why your post started "Ha ha". I couldn't see anything funny in Tarheel's responses.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
