Has this become a positive or negative development?________________________________The world has been through so many changes in recent years. Some of these changes affects us either positively or negatively. One of the major turn-around is the advent of technology. This has affected the way some people relates with each other. However,I strongly agree that these changes are beneficial to us.Communication is one of the potent aspect of our lives. Decades ago,before the innovations of technological ways of disseminating messages,there were other medium of passing information such as letter writing,post cards and visitings. Nowadays,peoples way of interaction with friends,neighbours and family has changed because they can easily send fax and emails. Old ways of communications are going down little by little. Traditional ways are becoming obsolete and this affects our beliefs,the new generation take it with levity. For example, my childhood friend and I broke up some months back because I never returned her visits and I just send her emails,she felt cheated and accused me of being self centered. I believe she should understand that emails are to keep contacts also but she refused blatantly.I am sure there are more positive developments in peoples interaction since the advent of technology because it saves us time,money and energy. For instance,someone travelling from one city to another to see a friend or a loved one risks his/her live. Accidents can occur anytime. This can be replaced with a phone call and you are closer. Other developments like video calls,instant messaging and video chats are other means to interact with people. I believe all these changes are positive.Indeed,there are so many ways technology affects our relationship with people but the positive aspects outweighs the negative aspects.
