Some people think that modern technology is making people more sociable, while others think it is making them less sociable.

Discuss both views and give your opinion.


In today’s world of social media, many people’s daily lives has been seamlessly integrated to social networking sites. While other people believe that technological advancement makes their lives increasingly connected, others, however feel the opposite. In my opinion, the present trend literally supported people to establish closer relationships and are more likely to participate in civic and political activities. 

To start with, modern technology helps family and friends stay connected more often compared to decades ago. The use of social media greatly transformed the communication landscape across the world regardless of geographical distance that separates people. Video-calls, for instance, in the absence of face-to-face contact, video communications technology become popular components of human’s everyday social interactions. Another example is that social media can ignite young people to participate and express their civic and political views through social and online platforms. In the past, most young individuals were shunned away to vent about everything but now they are expressing their views more freely in social websites.  

On the contrary, technological evolution makes more individuals especially teenagers feel disconnected from the society because some of them are relying solely in mobile phone’s entertainment than real life events. For example, an increasing number of  adolescents and teenagers find happiness in playing games with their smartphones instead of getting involve in contact sports and other community activities. With the nature of how internet work mean more will comfortably stuck in their rooms and becoming unsociable. 

In conclusion, it is clear that spending profuse amount of screen time negatively affects individual’s health. However, it would be wrong to focus only in the downsides of online social interactions because clearly modern technology delivered myriad benefits in the realm of communication. From my stand point, online setting communication is a convenient way to keeping in touch but people still need to step out and explore the wonders of real-world activities.
