Since the invention of telephone a hundred years ago, our communication tools have been developed drastically to aid our day to day communication. Many have been benefited to interact with each other easily, thanks to the help of advanced technology, but still there are problems caused due to misuse of technology.
On one hand, people are now no longer suffering from the disconnection of their friends and families due to long distance separation. People from Europe can call their friends in China anytime they prefer, instead of taking an airplane to China in order to tell them face to face. Because of invention of a lot of communication applications, for example, whatsapp, viber, facebook, etc., they are now able to share every moment of their life easily to friends from far away.
On the other hand, however, it has caused some communication problems these days people tend to focus more on their communication devices rather than connect with people face to face. What’s worse, more and more traffic accidents have been reported that the driver’s concentration on their phones instead of the road should be blamed.
In my opinion, the advancement of technologies are designed to help people communicate more effective. It’s up to everyone how to use the technology wisely to improve our life, instead of depend on it. We should also educate our young generation on the importance of face to face communication, as they are the future of human being. They will develop new technologies to move mankind forward.
