Individuals have been so used to texting and sending pictures to others that they are starting to take this into the way that they live. It almost seems as if people are no longer capable of speaking to one another and holding actual conversations. A scholarly article states, “I can't tell you how many times I’ve wondered what someone meant by their words- whether on social media, in a text or over email. Unless you see the person’s face, hear their voice and understand the environment, you have no idea the context surrounding the written words”(citation). Technology blurs things for people on the outside looking in. Actually talking to a person makes things so much more clearer for everyone involved in the conversation. A person is able to understand the tones, moods, and afflictions in the other person’s voice. Facial expressions are seen, which also make comprehension much better. Technology should not be overused, but used in a sense where people could benefit from it rather than being addicted to it. People spend an average of 8 hours and 41 minutes a day on social media. Some people may think that addiction to technology cannot happen but it is in fact real. And in this generation, it is becoming easier and faster to become addicted. With all these new features, apps, and inventions, today’s world is proving Bradbury’s point more
Technology has a major impact on society. With how integrated it is in the world today, it is hard to find something not affected by it. Everyday life is based around technology with cell phones, televisions, and cars being standard to most families in America. This makes some people think that it has a negative effect on society. In the book Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury presents his argument against technology by showing a corrupt society oversaturated with technology. While there are some negatives, overall, technology has a positive effect on society.

Today In our modern world we are surrounded by technology. On the daily note we write Emails, text, surf the web, and possibly play games. Almost every person has a smart phone now. Even little kids as young as a few years old have phones. We have become reliant on these things and some would argue that they can’t live without them. We do this because it has become the normal thing to do. But sometimes what 's normal can hurt. For example in the early ages in america history smoking become a normal thing for most, then it was discovered that smoking caused lung cancer and can be a short road to an early death. The same could be for technology in our era. The under thirty generation is the dumbest generation because of our over reliance on technology,
Texting amongst students has changed to create sexting that changes the way you socialize. Thomas Croft an author of, Sexting and young people explains a basic definition of sexting, ”The digital recording of naked or semi-naked images and distribution of those images by mobile phone or through the internet on social media (Crofts Thomas).” As a result of the naked images, sexting is ruining many students socially today; students that feel lonely and unwanted our usually the highest victims.

The essays “No Need to Call” by Sherry Turkle, and “Does Texting Affect writing?” by Michaela Cullington, brings up one great point on how the technology has advanced the society. Many teenagers who are brought up in this advanced society see it more beneficiary and efficient to text, social network chat, or instant message before making a phone call. Electronic media has transformed the society into a more digital platform. Thus, texting enables shy people to open up because it gives an individual time to think about what to say unlike the phone conversation. “It’s only on the screen that shy people open up, (Turkle, p. 380)” because when person thinks about what to say, one can talk to someone he/she had trouble talking to.
This high usage of social media, as stated before, helps the spread of sexting in teens and pre-teens. Students who practice sexting are more willing to get involved in sexual activities, and their sexual behavior increases. For example, “… a 16-year-old high school student in New York, says sexting is popular in his high school and generally viewed as not a big deal. "People post pictures of themselves on their Facebook pages," he says… he says sexting has never been discussed or punished” (“Sexting in Middle School Means More Sex for Preteens and Teens” Sifferlin).
While reading Alone Together I was able to recall many of my childhood experiences. Every single childhood memory I have had has something in common with the rest of my memories. I remember pleasant things; however, I always remember the gadgets I owned and used at that time. Growing up and currently there is always some type of technological gadget I carry with me everywhere I go and go crazy if it is misplaced Alone Together made me realize that technology controls me, not only do I depend on it but I have let it become an important factor in my life.
There are many benefits from both texting and making a phone call. Some might even say that texting is better than making a call because you can just wait to send or receive a reply, rather than being put on hold. However, the truth is held in the concept that none are better than the other. There can only be a satisfactory choice based on one’s personal preferences. Corporate business use phones every day.

With the use of technology, more and more young people can communicate better and faster using cellphones.
