The negative impact of these abbreviations are, sometimes we accidently use these slang words in our essays and other academic things. According to Christine, "using your own mind is much better than relying on software programs"( Christine Ritchie).Today, there are many tools we can use for gramar checking, that we begin to not care how to learn these things. We are too dependent on devices to do things for us. Google it! How many of us have searched for something on google?

These sites not only form huge distractions to people's everyday lives but has also ultimately replaced direct socializing. It is abundantly clear that communication technology has made people less effective communicators. Despite known advantages (i.e. how quick and easy technology can be used to interact with people across the globe) it is unfortunately beginning to replace face-to-face interactions.
The reports from students after the study suggest that giving up technology cold turkey not only makes life logistically difficult, but also changes our ability to connect with others.” ( Parker-Pope, “An Ugly Toll of Technology: Inpatients”).

As time progresses, more and more advances in technology are coming about. These advances are readily placing information at the hands of the consumer. People are relying on the internet and technological advances for things that used to be only completed manually. As a result many people argue that these advances are adhering to society’s desire to be lazy but, researchers are finding the exact opposite. Our minds are literally changing and the way we think about information is becoming simpler.
It is common to notice that the internet has rewired our brain into multitasking much more than before. However, it was concluded after numerous studies that this kind of digital multitasking does not make us smarter or more swift in our activities, but quite on the contrary negatively impacts our academic performance. A more scientific aspect of why our brain is affected by the large sea of information that is available to us is touched upon by Eric Jaffe. The writer explains that “the barrage of new media distractions is placing new demands on cognitive processing, and especially on attention allocation […] While cause-and-effect is difficult to parse here, in some sense it doesn’t matter. If all this digital media is causing people to multi-task
Many times people see false advertisements to websites that will take their money. But on the other hand many ads are real, but people have gone to so many of the fake ads that they won’t even click on the real ones. One reason why people like social media is because students have an easier way to interact with each other. On the other hand some people think that social media is a big issue for cyber bullying. But other people think that cyber bullying would still be an issue even without it.
The Internet is changing our lives by making us process information differently from the way we processed information in the past. In the article “Is Google Making Us Stupid? What the Internet is doing to our brains" by Nicholas Carr, he finds the Web to be a valuable tool, but he thinks it's having a bad effect on his concentration. Carr finds that people are losing concentration easier than before, and instead of reading material, they are skimming through it (Carr 58). This may be due to web pages being studded with links and people skipping over important text.
This paper will take the position that our overly use of the Internet has caused more harm than good. One researcher noted in his journal in 2001 that, “In recent years, there has been concern about the social impact of the Internet on several levels. One major worry was that use of the Internet would prompt people to withdraw from social engagement and become isolated, depressed, and alienated. A related fear was that Internet users might abandon contact with their local communities as they discovered how easy it is to go online to communicate with those in other parts of the world and get information from every point on the planet.” This prediction has partly if not in whole come to pass. With the average American spending roughly five and a half hours a day on social networking sites, (Nielson Mar.

Through my research I have learned that while we have been about to expand our network through social media, it has not taught is to build more meaningful connection or even communicate better. The purpose of social media is make communication and interaction easier but people are often so absorbed in their screen that they forget to interact with people in person. We have become better at communicating though Tweets, and status updates but have lost the art of communication without our technology.
We use it to find our relationships or to make friends, start fights, look for the current information, social media, to find information, and to give information, list keeps getting wider as the ages pass, because we rely too much on technology. The possibilities areendless. If people were to lose electricity they would probably panic and would be confused because they are in need of electricity. People in society nowadays are dependent when they should try to be independent without technology. Computer user ignores the risks and problem of using computers.
