Old world technology allowed people to communicate by telephone, Western Union wire service, writing letters, announcing vacation with colorful printed postcards or employ a courier service, and Wells Fargo pony express. In old world technology; people developed relationships by socializing at house parties, coffee bars to get acquainted, gather at restaurants, join book clubs with people who share a common interest. They give parties to nurture relationships, establish specific groups such as poker/Chess clubs. New world technology has evolved in many ways through the access to the Worldwide Internet.
Technology has created electronic devices such as Smartphone, iPhones, laptops, home computer, Ereader, robotic socialization. People have the convenience a cell phone anytime, writing an instant message, texting shorthand messages, electronic books/library, posting photos, virtual game such as solitary/chess. They have created relationships with access to social media sites such as Facebook to meet people, personal dating services, private chat rooms, and view/post opinions on blogging sites. New technology has increased the convenience of online shopping, and ordering food.
Socially it has created many outlets for us to communicate to one another, from far places, which is very cool in my opinion, but at the same time its easy for predators to find victims on the social cites. Thesis Statement: Old world technology has increased communication which has improved personal relationships and socialization. The Internet is changing the way we speak, and becoming more of our social livelihood. For example a face-to-face interaction afforded people time to connect with friends and family to develop lifelong friendships.
The new technology has replace our human connection for face-to-face experience only to be replaced by webcam. This need to communicate personally attacks our established core values and sense of identity. In the article “In the Beginning Was the Word,” author Christine Rosen made a concise analogy, technology has made communicating easy, “the price we pay for the ease of technology could be our imaginations and creativity. (Rosen 231) We are conditioning ourselves to present our ideas with texting mere symbols, abbreviated words and unknown slang’s that replaces our human voice.
According to the article in Psychology Today, “In Constant Texting Good or Bad in Relationship? “, author Theresa E. DiDonato, Ph. D. ,they did an assessment of the quality of connections and compatibility is based on talking on the telephone an occasional writing letters. Results revealed faceto-face connection is the foundation for relationships because of our interaction and internalizing of core values. Although, texting is convenient for staying connected in a relationship. Without our non-verbal signals, messages can be misinterpreted or misconstrued, leading to uncertainty and anxiety.
Maybe this is why texting is often used by people in newer relationships to broach difficult topics, to In addition, people’s relationship with friends and family are push father in the direction of social isolation. The future of social media is turning our relationship to a robotic socialization. For example, we will be different in 20 years as a result of this blending of online and off-line relationships leave more of the real world far, as dating, communicating, socializing will become more of a practical aspect than a reality of real issue.
For example, hypothetically in 20 years you will transport an image of a person to your house. In the next 20 years the world will become more of a virtual world to communicate and socialize. Virtual reality will govern 50 to 60% of our livelihood. As we will read less books the world will become more virtual reality. Note: from the research process found that new media technologies within the home are leading to increased social isolation and a privatization of people’s lives within the household. We expect more from social networking sites for example sustainable.
The future of social media is turning our relationship to a robotic socialization. People define themselves different in 20 years as a result of this blending of online and off-line relationships leave more of the real world far, as dating, communicating, socializing will become more of a practical aspect than a reality of real issue. For example, hypothetically in 20 years you will be transport an image of a person to your house where are. The Internet is changing the way we speak, and becoming more of our social livelihood. In the next 20 years the world will become more of a virtual world.
Communicating and socializing. Virtual reality will govern 50 to 60% of our livelihood. More of the internet relationships less real, more virtual. As we will read less books the world will become more virtual reality. Therefore, online relationships have created an impersonal way to hang on to a superficial way to commitment in a relationship. Therefore, the debate surrounds socializing on social networking sites has evolved with technology. Social networking sites have created socializing with others more accessible. This new form of communication and saw twitters has created a wave of the follower.
Argument #2 New World technology has decreased communication which has not improved personal relationships and socialization. Technology has change communication with new words, means, and form of language. This has broadened the capacity to expand our communication reaches to establish new relationships. For example you have to be careful of what you do and say with this technology because everything is available for the public eyes. We have change our lifestyles because of this new technology. There are many options, such share images, education, music, movies.
In the article “Much Ado About Blogging,” the author Scott Rosenberg makes a clear statement of the advantages of blogging sites the give open up a new platform where people can freely express their opinions. distraction with devise that is available all the time such as cell phones, laptops, and E-reader, “not a magazine the usual senses, but rather a co-operative means of rendering a timesaving device” (Rosen 231) Socialization breakdown and erosion cause by book store and libraries close their door for the last time to give way to cold piece of new technology.
People are not patient and enable to smell the aroma of books in a library but is casualties to new technology. Relationships fade like the wind, no face-to-face conversation to share our real emotion. Who do we convey our new ideas and shared point of view too? The social networking site are always recruiting for new relationships. The writer recycled bits of conversation from laptops surfing blog sites laboring on this new found technology? We are being lured away by our texting at the dinner table which reduces quality time with friend and family and give cause social isolation.
This has to be doing something to us, right? It must have some sort of impact on family and other relationships, correct? If you are like me, you have an uneasy feeling that whatever the impact is, it is probably not good. Technology has decreased communication by allows people to only collect bits of information. Sherry Turtle the author of “Connected, but alone” shares the thought behind the virtual world of unplugging ourselves to embrace a better life. We let the plugins change self-direction and how we interact with other is less meaningfully.
We are likely to customize our life as well as pick and choose information on social networking sites. Communicate with friends, family, groups. Social networking is useful for sharing information, but this has given the fear of losing our identity to virtual world in cyberspace. The influence of different persona of socializing has impacted our interaction socially. I have friends and family members, whom will not sign up for a social networking site, for fear of losing their privacy. Social networking is an excellent way to share, but this has given way to the anxiety of social media.
Many people are turning to online relationship opposed to the human touch. They take comfort that social network access is 24/7. Therefore, online relationships have created a lazy and impersonal way to hang on to a superficial way to commitment in a relationship. We become smaller in voice but great in distant on the Worldwide internet. Technology now controls our image and persona. We expect more from social networking sites, for example running our relationship by multitasking conversations.
Argument #2 Has new World technology decreased communication which has not improved personal relationships and socialization, mention my generation feelings, share images, join groups with common interest. They can start their own blog sites. Blogs reward blogger’s with insightful information or a tabloid perspectives. Blogs are expanding our relationships by “symbiotic ecosystem in which the different parts feed off one another and the whole thing grows” (Rosenberg 237) Bloggers do not use caution before posting their thoughts. This is controversial, people are sharing there lives in public, and this comes with a backlash.
For example, blogging about your job and getting fired. Posting about personal relationship and losing a friendship that you shared for over 20 years. Images that were offensive or controversial has compromised relationships with family and friendships. Blogs have created a new online journalist from new and old. The debate is between amateur and professional journalist. “amateurs badly in need of some skills and some editors” (Rosenberg 237) We are getting snippets, short narratives compared to an in-depths journalism reporting.
