(Porter, 2001) It is obvious that company tend to different from other which only focus on price strategies rather than through traditional methods of differentiation. (Porter, 2001) Throughout this article, Porter mainly aim to demonstrated that the Internet will weaken company’s profitability without providing proper operational advantages, because the proper use of internet will add value and increase company’s traditional competitive advantage, but it is unlikely for company to replace it. (Porter, 2001) It is true that internet business I increasing booming, because the new internet market is still developing in fast pace, every company want to be more profitable through their internet business. At the same, it looks like the company thought they can easily make more profit over the internet. Therefore, they tend to be crazy for sales figure and sell products at very cheap prices.
Technology has become an obsession within the twenty-first century. Phenomenal technological advancements have been developed over the past few decades. Technology, once for the privileged, is now commonplace and considered a necessity. While technology may seem “glamorous”, it is slowly crippling society. The prevalence of technology in the world has a negative influence on society because it is often irresponsibly used, erodes people’ self-reliance, and eliminates the need for human interactions.
Technology in the past meant slowly advancing to make lives easier. If you see technology today the first few things you think are, computers, tablets, and other common household objects. With the fast pace of technology today, technology is harming our businesses, brains and our bodies. The fast pace of technology as a result has played a big part in running us and our society. As technology advances (which is a good thing) so does our total dependency on it running our society.
However if there are others that believe it’s more about a hindrance than a help, because of the way it distracts people. Are people depending too much on the internet? The book Shallows; What The Internet Is Doing To Our Brains, by Nicholas Carr, discusses different forms of technology and how they are developing and starting to affect humans in different ways. The use of the internet has gained more popularity than ever over the past ten years. Carr mentions in the book that new technology is destroying the way that humans think, and is making us lose ourselves a little.
Social Media or Social Destruction? “Our social tools are not an improvement to modern society, they are a challenge to it” (“Quotes”). Modern society has an abundance of technology and means of communication, such as social media. Technology and social media have transformed our society; however, are all these transformations good? (rhetorical question) There are many benefits of technology in our society, but technology also has many negative impacts.
Carr argues that the efficiency and immediacy of the internet limits our ability for deep reading. Thompson claims that “Every new tool shapes the way we think, as well as what we think about” (Thompson 348). Every tool humans have ever created has shaped our brains, so we should not be scared that the internet is changing the way that we think. Especially considering it is causing us to think and learn more
The negative impact of Internet on behavioral changes in users In fact, internet has a considerable impact on the behavior of individuals and their way of thinking. Scientists say juggling e-mail, phone calls and other incoming information can change how people think and behave. They say human ability to focus is being undermined by bursts of information (Richtel, 2010). In fact, internet can cause the information overload in users because they have access to the huge amount of information which human brain seem to be hardly able to p... ... middle of paper ... ...t and telecommunication systems along with mass media, people will hardly be ever refuse from internet, unless a new, more progressive technology emerges. At the moment, the impact of Internet on human brains and the way of thinking is obvious and almost irrevocable but the impact can apparent its effects in a long-run perspective.
Introduction Technology is one of the most influential driving forces of society. Most countries rely on technological advancements to maintain a sustainable economy. A large portion of today’s day-to-day activities is nearly or completely impossible without the existence of computers. In today’s current era, information sharing and gathering is no longer supplemental, it is essential. The vast amount of data circulating on the Internet is both a blessing and a curse.
Once engaged, we become consumed by it. It bombards us with information from all angles and, on the surface, makes us feel really smart; but at what cost and how much of the information is actually retained? The internet is undeniably a hub for information, but our fundamental way of thinking is changing through noticeable signs of diminished concentration, reduced thought process, lack of desire to retain information, social interaction reduction and notable addictive qualities. Advances in technology and the internet have been positive, but it does not suggest that it is making us smarter. It is true that the internet is a tool with an overwhelming abundance of information.
While digitalizing has made our lives easier and is a better resource we may be taking it too far in the years to come. The internet has advanced our lives, while disabling it at the same time. We will continue to see new advancements and be in awe by them, but an important thing we need to be reminded of is not to let the internet and technology run our lives. Becoming so dependent will kick us hard if there comes a time when we don’t have the resource to use technology and knowing how to do something perhaps the “old fashioned” way isn’t such a bad thing. Let yourself run the internet and not run you.
