Even if they’re tech-savvy, crazy busy merchants simply don’t have the time to shop for terminals and learn how to make them work - especially when they’re getting pampered by the nation's #1 mobile wallet company! As a result, most micro-merchants I’ve quizzed are not even aware of UPI, BHIM and other competing e-wallets. 4. Frictionless Payments By design or default, the Sign Out link in PayTm’s mobile app is buried deep inside the app. As a result, many users have never seen it and stay logged into their app all the time.
In the advent of social media and personalized technology, advertisers and marketers simply bypassed the traditional media (television, radio and newspaper) and jumped into the fray of social media platforms. As a young adult currently reaping the benefits of technology and the phenomenon known as social media, I am part of a generation constantly bombarded by ads. This is not a new situation as older generation have the same scenario using their favorite traditional media. For my generation, these media are obsolete, if not rarely used. I could bet that most of my generation has little to no contact with these type of media.
Technology is becoming an unhealthy addiction within the world, we are becoming too dependent on our devices and need to take a step back and learn to focus more on our surroundings. Back in 2015, the average person would check their phone 85 times a day, that number has dramatically increased as the years have progressed. To show this I had tracked how often and how long I was on my phone which was an average of 88 times, and a range from 17-242 depending on the day. Due to technology advancements today, our communication skills are in danger. Today a majority of us would rather talk to each other through texting, social media, phone call or some form of Facetime.
Lastly, if we want to better ourselves for the future we need to fix these issues and find a way to use technology without it getting out of hand.Initially, people would much rather text or email each other then talk in person or go out to lunch, “Social networking has caused us to meet less frequently face-to-face resulting in an absence of much needed social skills”(Ashley Steve)Recently, teens have been much ‘happier’ with technology and without social skills, but in the long run it 's not going to help them out and they aren 't going to be as happy. It seems like technology has taken away from social events such as family reunions and dinners, “One expert explained that with less physical contact, children might have difficulty developing social skills and emotional reactions.”With less physical contact children and teens have a harder time with real-life conversations and seem to struggle with emotions and how to react in a situation.They don 't want their children to have social and emotional reaction issues to grow up to, so we need to solve a way to stop these issues. Teens who use technology are showing that they are being affected, and it isn 't in a positive way.Technology is not a great source to communicate, while it is causing mental and physical issues.Don 't trust the rumors about technology being a good thing, because in reality it is breaking relationships and causing
To demonstrate his point, Fowler and a colleague experiments being outrageous and to see if anyone notices. During the investigation, called a “Chewbacca Experiment,” he identified that most people did not look up from their phones. Although cell phones have made our lives easier and faster, it is safe to say that they take away how we communicate to each other. They take away how people indulge in event. Everyone does not live in the moment because post and “snap” everything they do.
You can see as you walk by any places, people are diving their nose into their phone screens which inevitably make them oblivious to what is happening around them. In this era, people are inseparable from their phones. Our dependence on technology turns the society into a lost world without interaction with our people in our community. In my opinion, the society is being more and more dependent
“The devices we use change the way we live much faster than any contest among genes” (Wu, 2014). Increasingly our society is evolving into a snapchatting, instagramming, selfie-taking, facebook using, tweeting crowd of technology addicts. The thought of someone not using the internet or a mobile phone in their daily life is laughable to most young people. However, this is a relatively new phenomenon. Fifty years ago people were capable of going to lunch without snapchatting their friends and uploading a photo of their meal to Instagram (granted the technology did not exist, but they did not attempt to communicate in a similar way).
Social media has created this negative aspect due to the misleading advertisements shown. Some people have pushed aside time to engage in a fitness routine because smartphones are taking up majority of the time in a day. Within those hours in the day, people tend to sit around binge eating while scrolling through Instagram or watching Netflix. However, there are a group of people who have become anorexic and bulimic because people want to envision themselves as model figures that are portrayed across social media. This leads individuals who spend long hours on their smartphones to no longer consume food, increase their fitness routine, throw up their diet, or even eating tiny portions of a meal.
Now in the 21st century, our verbal communication is replaced by texting, likes, and shares. Nonverbal communications are translated into emojis and animojis. No wonder everyone lost their ability to listen, instead they only hear what they want to hear. This is not only a teen problem, I believe that even adults actively engage in social media conversations and have lost their social skills and their ability to find common grounds. In Spite of my casual awareness, I find it difficult to stay away from social media and all of the notifications and alerts popping up on my phone
This image stuck a cord with m, and suddenly I started to notice just ho overly dependent we are on technology. Now I notice how dependent we are on technology on a daily basis. I saw an episode of South Park a few years ago where the Internet goes down. The episode is called “Over Logging” and it shows a world without Internet.
