Is the technology we use makes us socially connected or socially isolated?
I am going to talk about some main points about this.
1. Internet addiction 2. Using cell phones instead of talking face to face
As we said, internet addiction is one of the reasons we became socially isolated.
Internet addiction causes people together a house but barely communicating because of this technology that came.
To prove it to you, I was one about 2 years ago, been always standing in front of a computer screen for hours without a break! Going to eat and then coming back for more computer games to play. My friends and parents both felt sad for me and told me to go out more and communicate with actual people.
People say internet addiction is becoming a major problem and can be destructive to a person’s life but there is a disagreement about whether internet addiction is worthy of the ultimate stamp of approval. There has been people talking about internet addiction being harmful but there are cases that it helps people becoming more productive like making programs that will increase our knowledge. The internet has made many things, from banking online to communication to accessing music, movies and many more.
Vaughan Bell says, creating new “addictions” is misleading and confusing and will only prevent people from getting the help they need. The addiction might not be your addiction, your actual difficulty may be that you are in a bad relationship or you are depressed, not addicted to the internet. It’s a neat placebo (procedure) explanation that doesn’t fully address the complexity of people’s problems.
This is the advantages and disadvantages of internet addiction.
Being addicted to computers (internet) can be harmful but sometimes has its moment as it helps us being creative.
