We couldn’t avoid using technology for online activities that keep us up too late. Also our social bonds affect by it and because of that, face-to-face interaction is slowly disappears. More violence, lack of our empathy, stress, lack of privacy, and increased bullying are affected by it . The author posits that because of technology, there are many changes happened in this generation, it brought negative impact to the people who uses much technology. Therefore, the author explains that technology has a negative result on students' social life.
Technology makes people dumber, because people can just look everything up on their electronic device. Technology can also make people get easily distracted. It can cause changes in behavior by making people lazier. This is unfortunate, because technology has brought about a lot of wonderful opportunities through social media and global communication. People need to stop relying on technology in order to counteract the habits acquired through the use of technology that have made people, as a whole, dumber.
When it comes to technology, they aren’t able to limit their time with it. Left unchecked, the extended time using technology may cause them to become lonely and start to have less confidence. They would face lots of problems in life, which would be hard for them to solve “Balancing our time will make us feel more productive and alive, compared to people who use devices all day long, who are totally escaping the real world.” (Mobretz, Lauren) They may not have even realized the harm that technology has placed upon their daily lives. Teens may think that they are less lonely
However, many off turn a blind eye to the negative impact it has and will continue to have on society. For instance, although the ability to share images and videos with loved ones instantaneously regardless of where they are in the world is amazing; a simple oversight in the privacy settings could potentially place those pictures and/or videos in the wrong hands, which could be used to bully. In fact, “the depression and anxiety from cyberbullying are significant and have been the cause of many suicides in America” (Richards, Caldwell, & Go, 2015). Therefore, it is imperative that social media is not only monitored, but usage is
The Negative Impact from Social Media Social media is something so beneficial yet comes with so many consequences. It was created and intended to be used as a different form of communication but as time goes on people have begun to use not only social media but the internet in their own ways such as, keeping their toddlers from throwing another tantrum, or binge watching the latest season of their favorite show. It’s amazing that we can do all of this with such a small device now but the impact it leaves can be very damaging. Anything on social media or even our own devices, is never private. To expand on that a little more, many companies sell your information to other companies that will benefit from it.
What i mean by live in the moment is that people are too worried about if there phone is charged, or if they lost their phone they are too worried about where it is. Instead of worried about what is happening in the world. Society may have gone too far in technology dependence such that it has become so immense that doctors have recommended for “technology detox.” Social skills are not how they used to be because kids and teens are texting all the time and some kids and teens do not know how to talk
Faber realized that people being so dependant on technology isn’t right and it is taking away from normal life. Even people today feel like technology distracts us from real life and how we don’t have time to stop and think about what is actually happening. The best point Faber made in this quote was how it (television) rushes you by so quickly without having time to process. It shows that Faber acknowledges how destructive television and technology can be in general. This quote especially helps my theme because it shows that someone in the book has realized that people have become
One of the biggest issues with the media is the effects it has on the brain. Media is addicting. People would rather find entertainment effortlessly rather than going out and making an effort to entertain themselves (Winnail, 2003). The media provides this immediate source of entertainment, leading people to their addiction. Becoming addicted to media and technology has negative effects on the mental health of an individual.
Also that bad friends encourage you to do another bad behaviours. Day by day, you will change to monsters. For instance, you will abuse to other people and you will hurt them.And then both of you will be lonely in your life. In my view, these reasons can cause to commit suicide because drinking affects their brain and it causes some psychological problems and they can not think carefully in their life while they are making decisions. Last but not least, using alcohol always affects our success in a bad way, because when we drink something , we can not get up early, so we go to school lately and we can miss our lessons.
Grievously, the sad truth is that most teenagers lack the mental self-discipline and willpower to resist the urge of short-term satisfaction for long-term satisfaction. This inevitably leads to procrastination, which in turn leads to, as you mentioned, a decay in the quality of ‘priorities like schoolwork and homework’. On the other hand regulated and monitored usage would possibly enable the child or teenager to increase their productivity. Consequently, I believe that the usage of the internet and social networks can be beneficial when regulated or monitored by either parents or a trusted elder or guardian. The point you conveyed regarding social media users creating a ‘distorted self-image’ ‘in order to develop a perfect’ self-image, at the major expense of ‘staying true to who we really are’.
