I think that technology and the internet can and have brought people together. The reason that I say that is because if you are homeschooled, than you can stay connected with your old friends. But if you get cut off from the internet and stuff, and you cannot get to talk to anyone at all, than you will be lonely and not have anyone to talk to.

I do agree with him that technology has changed the way we interact and how we view each other, on the other hand though
Tectnolgy has taken over the world these days with social media and people might have had friends lost because of this. “Between the time we spend on Facebook, Twitter and Words With Friends, I feel like we sacrifice the time we used to use to bond—but it 's not like either of us is willing to give up those things” (Morris par. 3).

Social media has been a platform that can share everything and everyone. Social media is a plague of offensive, judgemental, and argumentative platforms that leave people upset when viewing topics based on beliefs, opinions, and politics. But it can also cause dysphoria when seeing other people advertise their perfect lives. People will post about their great lives but the need to post so much is what could be hindering their sense of wellbeing (Kluger).
