Television, as a part of technology, without doubt, brings problems as well as benefits to our society. Since 1980s, television has become common in home, business and even on the street. However, it has brought some unexpected problems.
The first problem caused by TV is a lack of individuality. This is because people want to copy TV star's fashions, hairstyles and even their way of speaking. It is, indeed, a very usual thing especially teenages. They tend to imitate their idol's apperances : wearing the same clothes and shoes, acting like them.
In addition to this problem, television has also caused problems in children's behavior and has influenced on their creativity. Some rough, violent and sexual scenes and expressions in a TV shows and drama have influenced children to behave like what they have seen and they have heard. Moreover, there was a research about children's creativity between two groups which one in saw TV, and the other read a book for the same matter. After doing that, the researchers had two groups describe the same stuffs, and they got higher score from the group who read a book. Because the group who saw TV had already fixed to the visual for the stuffs.
It is clear that TV has made our lives fun and variously, but this has done like that I mentioned and it could be used in bad ways. As with every new invention, there have been unforeseen consequences. It is totally up to us to find the solutions to the problems as well as to enjoy the fun and variety of this tool.
