The Problem and its Background
I. Introduction
It cannot be denied that different forms of technology have been linked to our daily lives, especially to the new generation. The current society relies on a vast technical infrastructure every day. Computers and the internet have shaped who others have become. Indeed, technology has revolutionized the lives of many; but is it for better or for worse? In this research, we will show how computer revolutionized and shaped the lives of all.

Computer technology has had its positive and negative effects. Users can benefit through the usage of computers. They can get additional knowledge regarding the information they know. They can also use it to connect to other people online and through social networking sites. Others use it as a tool for enjoyment, entertainment, and for business purposes.
