Even though people believe that technology is harmful to humans, technology is helpful since it allows people to connect with families and friends and it allows people to stay connected to their important events on their calendar. While some people think that technology is harmful, it is helpful for people because it can aid in the medical field and it helps educate people. Some people think that technology is harmful to humans. The reason people think that technology is harmful is because humans look earnestly at their phones on Instagram, Twitter, or Snapchat. However, that it is not true because technology allows people to connect with their families and friends, even when they are far away from another country.
Thus many would rather embrace this “happy” safe illusion of virtual connection rather than share and develop real life relationships” (Amedie). This is where the anxiety and depression come into effect, when people our constantly worried of what others will think, when they post their thoughts or, upload a photo of themselves. However, Penard finds that “We find
Because by knowing , we can avoid the bad social media effects. Social Media has a bad effect for its users because by using social media. A person can become lazy and tend to delay work. And also some people tend to waste time because of using social media in excess. And worse still if someone keeps delaying the job he may forget his job.
Scrolling down a feed on social media has become one of the most common hobbies of today. It has become so relevant that some turn to it as a distraction and it becomes more of a routine to pick up the phone, then to engage in conversation at social events. Although social media was intended to be used as a way to communicate with friends and family, it has vastly become a negative influence on some younger people. In this technology era, people do not just use social media to chat with people, you can now see updated trends, articles, challenges, and so much more. That being said young adults, teens, and adolescences are being affected by how they use, see, interact and interpret social media in a way that can influence a person 's mental health positively and negatively.
Although these social media applications are created for convenient people, there are also some people who use it as a tool of crime. This phenomena makes people do not dare to reveal their real appearance, personality or name in the social media. Slowly, people become lonely although they have a lot of friends in their friend list. It is because they are not sure whether the friends are revealing their own self or a fake character that created by them. In this thesis, the impact of social media communication like cyber bullying, cyber victimization and sexting will be examined.
There are several improvements in life due to the positive effects of technology and there are some negative impacts as well. Technology has greatly changed the way people interact socially. Due to email and cell phones, it is now unnecessary to talk to someone face-to-face in order to make a business deal. This convenience can weaken business relationships, however, because interactions through texting and email can often be misinterpreted. Many still find it more effective to meet in person in order to gauge a business partner’s reactions (Sharkey).
I do believe technology makes us more lonely but it depends on the person. I believe technology does make us more alone. People now are always deep into technology, whether it 's a phone, computer, or even television. Phones in particular really isolate people from interacting with each other, as they 're always texting or watching video. Technology is causing us to have connections with our phones instead of connecting with people and it sometimes can cause some people relationships to break apart.
According to Carrie Snow,” Technology … is a queer thing. It brings you great gifts with one hand, and it stabs you in the back with the other.” (Carrie,n.d) Some people think that technology has taken over our lives, while others think it has positive things to us. I choose this topic because I think that technology really has improved our society compared to the past, but if we keep using it the wrong way we will be addicted to it and eventually it will control us. Some people don’t value the time they spend together, for example if they are gathered in one place as you can see in figure 3 they usually on their smartphones or tablets due to that they barely starts a conversation (How technology steals family time, 2014). People should not blame the technology, however they should take responsibility for the way they use it.
However, this can be a distraction to some people as it might interrupt their school work, health, or even relationships. Entertainment through technology wouldn't be the only way people get away from stress or other negative things because there are other things such as sports or other extra curricular activities that people can do. Entertainment is another key reason to why our generation is dependent on
These new technologies develop more room for distractions, this prevents others to miss the things from everyday life happening. Due to a person involving their life mainly on social media and letting it lead their daily lives, there is a decrease in the amount of social interactions between others such as family (“Negative Effects” 2). There is less conversations happening between family members due to the addiction of social media. With the idea of wanting to spend lots of time on websites and using social media there is the decrease in the time others spend together overall. There begins to be relationships built off of online communication instead of face to face interactions (“Negative Effects” 5).
