Technology is the source of some of today’s most amazing inventions. Think about where we would be without the telephone, television or even the radio. While these are some of the more “primitive” forms of technology they have really changed the way that humans communicate. Even with all these forms of technology, technology refuses to take a break and is constantly coming up with newer, more advanced forms of itself. In fact, some of today’s new technology will forever change the way that we communicate with each other. Here is a look at some examples of modern technology and how it has changed the way we communicate with each other.
Online colleges have really changed the way that people communicate and learn. Instead of being forced to attend classes at a brick and mortar college, online colleges offer everyone from businessmen to stay at home mothers the opportunity to earn a number of online degrees. This form of technology has not only changed how people communicate but it changed the way we learn.
Smartphones do everything and anything. They offer a line of direct communication, a word processor, a television and an entertainment center. In fact, everyone’s life could be contained right inside a small smartphone. The popularity of the smartphone has really made it so that everyone has become dependent upon these items. Just a few minutes without their smartphone and people are panicking.
Social Media/Internet Memes
Social media has allowed people to stay in constant contact with each other no matter where they are in the world. It has allowed people to see into everyone’s day to day life. Social media outlets are also popular places to start and share Internet memes which are like spotlights on what is popular in the internet world.
Technology is forever changing but one thing is for certain, we have become so dependent upon technology that it will never be out of our lives.
