Technology has always had an important role in our generation.
Too much screen use induces less communication between people and more time spent using technology. Technology used in our society in the same way. Sometimes people use television to forget about a hard time at work, others using phones in public, so they don’t have to interact with other people. “Little by little, technology has become an integral part of the way that people communicate with one another and has increasingly taken the place of face-to-face communication.

In the United States, there is an ongoing debate that’s been discussed for decades. The debate is on whether too much time around technology can harmful to a young teen’s behavior, social skills, and attention to school work. Recently two article have been released, “Blame Society, Not the Screen Time” by Danah Boyd and “Don’t Limit Your Teen’s Screen Time” by Chris Bergman, that take similar sides to the debate, but two very different approaches. Bergman explains that technology should be allowed often to take away the hunger for time in front of a screen, while Boyd demands that parents give their children more freedom to interact in order to lessen the desire for technology. Regarding the ongoing debate on technology’s effects on children,
In her essay “Teenage Social Media Butterflies May Not Be Such A Bad Idea,” Melissa Healy argues that kids most likely to spend lots of time on social media sites are not the least well-adjusted, but the psychologically healthiest. I agree with most of the points Healy discusses in her article in the Los Angeles Times. The concept that teens use social media to keep in touch with friends is the first point I agree with. I think that the internet has proved to be an excellent source for adolescents to communicate with each other quickly as well as to develop important social skills. I think that the internet allows for teens to practice how to communicate with other people.
In conclusion, technology can have negative impacts on today’s people in many ways.

These devices can be so harmful to people without them even knowing it. People should be more aware of what technology can do, and try their best not to depend on
Technology has always been progressing thus it is rampant in our society today. We use technology; depend on technology in our daily life and our needs and demands for technology keep on rising (Ramey, 2012). Wherever you look, you will see people holding different kinds of technology like cell phone, laptop, tablets and etc. It appears to most of us that technology is a necessity to the point where we can no longer live without it. According to Gavin (2013), technology moves at a rapid pace, and can be hard to keep up with at times.
We all use it. Whether it is a text to your significant other, a hard work day on the job, a quick drive to the store, even something as simple as going to church, no matter where we are we always seem to be using technology. Technology is a growing issue with each passing day and even though there are positive effects it also has its negative side. It affects the things we do such as communication and playing, but most importantly affects our brain with our daily thought process. Today, Im going to inform you on how technology has affected you and your daily lifestyle habits.
In the view of technology during this century, it is everything to human beings now. A person is attached to their handheld devices now. The people in this society have now been attached to their laptops, even more their cellphones that are capable of being used just as their laptop
In the fast developing contemporary world, it seems to be that people cannot spend a day without social media, despite the fact of its numerous negative effects. The vulnerable teenagers should limit the use of social media by spending less time on the Internet as it can cause a number of negative consequences: it can lead to health as well as social problems. Proponents, however, argue that social media changed lives to the better as it made communication easier and faster and there are no negative effects from social media. They might also say it is impossible to withdraw from the Internet at all. This may be true and their argument is valid, nevertheless, all the negative impacts on one’s physical as well as mental health and social life outweigh the mentioned advantages.
Imagine a world today where people didn’t have the technologies. If there were no technologies today, humans wouldn’t have phones, computers, tablets, Instagram, Twitter, or Snapchat. Technology is now a big part of people’s society and predictable future. Electronic devices like cars, phones, tablets, and computers have all been created over time to make peoples live helpful and easier. The benefits of technology are that people can talk to their friends and relatives who are living far from them, they can learn new things and online courses, and they’re able to reach distant places within hours which took years of time to reach in olden days.
