In this modern world, we can say that technology is evolving yet ravaging positively and negatively the whole population. Below, we take a look at the benefits and disadvantages of technology.
Benefits of Technology
Helps You Connect With Others Easily
Undoubtedly, technology helps people to connect easily without the need to travel long distances to do so or writing letters like the ancient time.
Nowadays, you can stay connected 24/7 with whoever you wish to, and the distance doesn’t matter anymore.
You get Information Quickly
Technology allows humans to gather or obtain information on anything throughout the internet.
People no longer need to open an encyclopedia to learn something. All they do now is open Google search and ask whatever they need to know.
You get to spend time with Family and Friends
Technology has connected family and friends together through games such as PlayStation. If you and your friends are out of plan, you can just sit back, relax and enjoy a hectic yet fun match of Fifa on your PlayStation.
Cons of Technology
Makes You Become Lazier
Unfortunately, technology is making people become lazier. For instance, a survey shows a human being spends an average of 3-4 hours using their mobile phones daily.
In ancient times, when technology did not exist, people used to do other things such as cleaning the house, playing cards, or cooking. Therefore, making them physically and mentally active all the time.
Some people need to spend some time thinking about the baseless time they waste using their mobile phones daily. This could probably help them to do something more productive than spending time with their technological devices.
You do not Spend Enough Time with Families and Friends
Has this ever happened to you, when you were at a dinner at a restaurant or home, everyone was using their mobile phone?
Unfortunately, this is what technology is doing nowadays. It’s taking away the precious time that you spend with your family and friends. All everyone does is scrolling on social media baselessly instead of savoring more precious moments in their life.
