New technologies emerge, they have a significant impact on our culture and our lives. Choose two new technologies that you currently use often (try going without your cell phone) and explore the positive and negative effects these technologies have on society. If you grew up in your parents’ generation—without computers, e-mail, texting, Facebook, the Internet, and cell phones—how would your daily life differ from the one you lead today? Would your life be slower paced? How would you interact differently with people having direct contact, (e.g. visit, phone conversation vs. texting, Facebook)? Would this be a better form of communication or more difficult.

Technology is embedded in everyone’s life in this information commodity. Emails and cell phones have had significant effects, both positive and negative, on day-to-day lives. The communication media deliver information to many recipients faster than traditional methods. Emailing and texting are cheap, especially when using broadband that allows free mail sending. Moreover, emails have transformed organizations because many companies accept remote working, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Similarly, cellphones hasten communication, apart from acting as storage devices for documents and pictures, among other items. They also permit videoconferencing in virtual organizational meetings. However, these technologies are associated with health problems such as obesity because they limit time for physical activity. Life would be slower-paced with limited interactions living in our parent’s generations. However, communicating through direct contact would be better to encourage socialization.
