Technology that we have today has changed our lives and the way we communicate. It’s not the same thing as we had 20 years ago. Long time ago there wasn’t such thing as computers and chats were we could easily respond to any person that we like. The only thing there was left was to meet with each other and talk face to face. Right now, our communication looks different because now you can talk through messengers and chats without seeing each other. In my opinion, communicating through internet shouldn’t look like that because this way we hide our emotions inside without expressing them in real life. I think technology is bringing us closer together but also apart; there’s pros and cons to it. Through internet we can meet all sorts of different people from even different countries and we can even expend our knowledge based of the news from computers. But on the other hand, technology puts as farther apart specially young kids, because as statistics show in the article called, “Mobile: A Trend That Is Reshaping Communication” which gives us 91% of children keeping their smartphone within arms reach 24/7/365. For me, phone is not that important I use it only for important phone calls from family and friends, but I do have cousins which have their iPhones with them all the time and can’t live without them. Therefore, technology will not disappear it will expand more and it’s neutral thing which can bring some people farther apart or closer.
