Is technology a blessing or a curse? Technological innovations play a major role in changing the human lifestyle. They have brought favorable changes in terms of advancement in medical, educational, economical, and other various fields in society. But along with the advantageous changes brought by technology come the disadvantageous changes, which often lead many people to reject technological advancement due to their gravity. Addiction to phones, overuse of the internet, and negative influences of media are three of the many unfavorable effects of technology on humanity.
Technology does make life easier, but there are many disadvatages. Imagine how the future will look with us being dependent on our technology. Would we lose the ability to think for ourselves, write, or even communicate properly? Many of us are blind about technology and not looking at reality. More and more technology is on the way.
For example the child is becoming annoying to the parent; the parent will then give the child either a cellphone or a tablet so that the child will become distracted. By doing this time... ... middle of paper ... ...many benefits for us, but it is not really needed all the time. Maybe in some situations for people technology is needed every day in their lives. But the fact is that people don’t really need all these new gadgets, they didn’t have all of this kind of stuff back in the day, and they still mad it through. Education is being helped by technology and sometimes just giving the student the answer.
Due to overused time on their gadgets, today’s children waste their valuable time and prefer connecting with friends and family through the use of, massaging, chatting and video calling. Most children nowadays engage themselves in the virtual world instead of the real world which could be pretty dangerous to their psychological aspect and to their brain. Furthermore, communication skills could also deteriorate because of many children not having face to face conversation with other people or so. Cyber bullying has also increased drastically over the past few years which is a think of concern of us, teenagers tend to use internet for their dark malicious and menacing purposes. They tend bully people through the use of internet and say things that they won’t say in person.
This epidemic has not only started to effect the modern youth, but also elders and children alike. The main reasons social media is not as good for our society as one might hope it could be are that behind social media there is time wasting, the anonymity of the internet, and also social media instigates less face to face time between people. Many times I have heard that there is nothing
for every advantages technology gives us it also comes with a subsequent disadvantages. some of them are the complexities of society. not everyone can cope with the advancements of technology. these people can get left behind. everything becomes more complicated and what is expected of us also grows.
The Negative Effect of Technology on Humans by [insert name] Technology has an incomprehensibly immense impact on our lives. Humans have maximized on the reduction of human effort in many fields. We were able to translate this to a more luxurious life outside work, and we have reached a point at which technology might be having too much of an impact on our lives. Two main aspects of our lives have been especially impacted by technology: our minds and our bodies. In addition to its impact on humans as individuals, technology has heavily impacted our society as a whole.
This affects the income of the original person who came up with that idea first and they would suffer a huge loss in profit and last but not least, the originality of the product would be tarnished. Also, it can stifle one’s creativity in that technology may hinder one from drawing on their potential when setting out to do a task as it provides a vast store of knowledge that one may draw upon to complete a task. In conclusion, people’s dependence on technology has indeed affected creativity and communication. With the advent of technology and our ever growing dependence on it, creativity and communication will evolve and as it does, so will our growth as individuals for a holistic global community for the greater benefits of technology certainly outweighs the negative impacts it
The more advanced technology becomes, the more of a toll it has on our daily lives. Lee Siegel states that “we shop, work, play, love, search for information, seek to communicate with each other and sometimes with the world online. We spend more time online than ever before. Yet people are not arguing about this startling new condition." It is my belief that due to the control technology has taken over society, technology is ultimately detrimental to society as a whole.
At the same time, todays new generations incredibly dependent on it. They do not want to use their brain as there are lots of search engines they can easily access and can find out what they want. Technology creates problems about pollution and global warming and at the same time people are using technology to reduce these problems. Overdependence on technology is harmful for humans’ existence because it creates addiction that makes people inactive, decrease job opportunities and causes physical or mental disorders that is a great threat for mans’ life. Technology addiction is almost similar to drug addiction.
