How Has The Use Of Technology Affected Peoples Ability To Communicate Face To Face?


Technological advancement in the last century has had a drastic  impact on the way individuals communicate. The introduction of  ever-progressing cell phone technology, personal computers, and social  media has enabled increased control over our personal interactions with  each other and is playing a large part in the shifting of social values  and priorities. As communications technologies continue to advance ever  further, it calls to question whether the shift in communications is a  good thing or a bad thing and whether technology is aiding or hurting  personal relationships.

  • Do you see a change (increase or decrease) in this human-technology dependency in the future? What kind of change do you favor?
