The use of the internet can also trigger problems, Frist, one of the cons of the internet. Some people often put a wealth of their personal information on the internet is so enormous that personal privacy is at risk; it will be easier for hacker to gain information from the internet user which they can eventually use to steal credit card information. Second, despite the convenience of smooth transactions from automation system, using internet and technology to run the businesses can also have a negative effect on the business once the computer systems break down. Operations will be set on hold if the system is down preferably if the business applies the internet operated. Loss of internet connection can slow down business processes and affect productivity.
Knowing how information can easily be manipulated, it is no surprise that social can cause harm among people. One of the most powerful media platforms being Facebook has taken advantage of its users personal information while also causing controversy by exploiting political information. According to “How Facebook Warps Our World,” the author explains in depth how Facebook manipulate information to be viewed as one-sided to blind its users from seeing the truth, called the “Facebook Effect.” The author states, “The Internet isn’t rigged to give us right or left, conservative or liberal — at least not until we rig it that way. It’s designed to give us more of the same, whatever that same is: one sustained note from the vast and varied music that it holds, one redundant fragrance from a garden of infinite possibility.” (Bruni, 1) Social media causing mental harm towards people who express their voice on the social issue by getting attacked by others who disagree with their opinion. Thus categorizing each topic to be viewed one way or another to have clashed in an argument about who 's right and
With the internet being invented and undoubtedly taking huge precedence in our lives, there is inevitably going to be a way for people to waste their time on the internet. That time waster, also known as social media, is one of the most beneficial and also one of the worst things that has entered the lives of people as a result of the internet. People everywhere use social media. They use it to feel connected to people who are far away, to promote their businesses, and for a plethora of other reasons. Social media has begun to be increasing used in school, the workplace, and also just in peoples own homes.

Social media is a fairly new concept that refers to the combination of various applications, software, websites, and devices that allows individuals to create and
Technology, Multitaskers, and Questionable Skills Throughout the last couple of decades, technology has progressed taking us further into a more developed and informative world. The internet has played a major role in this progression and altered the way in which we communicate and interact. Some may ask, “where would we be without technology and the internet?” or “I need my phone, where’s my phone?” The constant need for technology is interfering with daily activities and aiding in the masses being less aware of their surroundings which causes frustration and disconnects human interaction. At the forefront of society, technology looms over humanity with its ever-changing face and has taken precedence over priorities, increase multitasking,
The Influence of Technology In the essay, “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” Nicholas Carr argues that utilization of the internet has an adverse effect on our way of thinking and functioning in everyday life. Whether it be reading a newspaper, or scrolling through Facebook, internet media has forever stamped its name in our existence. Carr explains to us that the internet is a tool used every single day in today’s society, but also makes most of us complacent with the ease of having the world at our fingertips. He starts his argument by telling us the effect the internet has had on him and others he has come across. The internet has changed his train of thought and his ability to focus and concentrate.
Is this healthy, is this causing more than a minor issue? Nicholas Carr and Clive Thompson both talk about technology and the impacts on it, but through two different views. Yet I still believe either way that technology can negatively affect your social life and relationships you hold with others, but especially friends and family. Nicholas Carrs essay, “Is Google Making Us Stupid” he argues that using the internet as our search engine and reading source is altering the way that we read and process information. “Never has a communications system played so many roles in our lives-or exerted such broad influence over our thoughts-as the internet does today,” (Carr 321).
While there are many positive consequences, there are negative consequences. To my thinking, as social media sites were being developed, the most apparent of the manifest dysfunctions would have been the loss of privacy or invasion of privacy, your information is out there for all who want to see, at least until privacy controls came into being. The latent dysfunctions keep growing as social media grows. Unintended negative consequences can include the reduction of face to face interactions (Austin, 2013) and voice to voice interactions, using the phone to actually talk to another person. There is a false sense of connection, less meaningful relationships fostered in the real world versus the casual relationships formed through social media(Jung).
The new communications technologies that are based on computers, multimedia computers, local area networks (LANs), Internet, digital TV) that could be clear operationally as systems and resources are for processing, storage and diffusion of digitised information that is based on use of computer technology, are causing reflective changes and alterations of social and cultural nature, as well as economic. To such an extent the social impact of new technologies is so controlling that states are entering into a new period or stage of human civilisation, which is assumed as the "knowledge society" (Boyd and Crawford, 2012). It is noted that the way we communicate each other has changed forever. However, the proximity of email has exchanged the
