“Typically, the concern about our dependence on technology is that it detracts from our time with family and friends in the real world,” (Parker-Pope).

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

Technology has affected the English language in both good and bad ways in that it has increased the rate that which we can communicate with each other, but at the supposed expense of the literacy of those who use these modes of communication. It seems, since the pros far outweigh the cons, that technology is helpful to communication because it can enables everything that uses it to function at a faster rate since things like instant messaging and text messaging arrive nearly instantly. The unique thing about these technologies is mainly that “if [people] are in school, you can give them poor grads; if they are applying for jobs, you can pass them over;” so what can we do
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.
Social adequacy is a dying skillset that has been further wiped out by the incessant need for screen-to-screen relationships. It is much easier to talk through a screen or over the internet because “this generation is much more comfortable [with it]” (Joseph,1) as opposed to talking face-to-face. The current generation has tools that the past generations never even dreamed of, such as; webcam calling, internet personas and instant messaging over the internet. With these constant resources, it leads to more and more people choosing to instead to “hide behind the text” and “project any image they want” (Forbes, 1) to their recipient.

Arguably, technology has changed several aspect everyday lives, such as jobs, healthcare, and education. Some claim that the negative impact of technology on people can be shown in various ways. Technology is making society become more individualized, it has led to more illegal and immoral behavior, and technology has become so innovative that technology is replacing workers. Because many people are connected through social media, with less face to face conversations society is becoming more isolated. Online dangers that accompany isolation sometimes include lying and misrepresenting ourself on websites, and social media is used more frequently for young individuals.
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.
