Face-to Face-Contact Diminishing Slowly technology seems to be destroying the meaningfulness of interactions we have with others, disconnecting us from the world around us, and leading to a sense of seclusion in today’s society. In this century people prefer to use technology instead of physically contacting with one another. Current generations have been communicating on social networks, texting, and emailing rather than having one-on-one conversations. They tend to feel safer and it’s easier for them to write out and think what they are going to say rather than blurting it out. They are becoming more socially awkward to talk in person.
It’s what we are actually saying that’s really mucking up our relationships.” At first brief look, Bernstein’s argument is effective because she gives good examples that support her argument and most people can empathize with. Also, she supports her argument by adding tricks and tips to helps readers improve their interactions on Facebook. However, when I read her article in depth, I found that her argument is weak because she did not study data as statistics, she use some examples that are not related to the main idea ,and she ignores certain age groups that use Facebook the most. Elizabeth Bernstein uses logic effectively by giving good details and examples that most people can relate to, which also support her argument. She was able to reach out to the audience and use the audience’s emotion by using common examples that people faced every day on status updates such as food, daily life, and love life.
First, I’ll be talking about the traditional forms of communication and how they are slowly disappearing because of today’s new ways to communicate, then I will be talking about how the traditional forms of communication are better and how they should not be forgotten, and I’ll finish with the negative influence modern technology has on our lives, such as creating barriers between people. The emergence of modern mobile phones and computers has changed the way people communicate, a lot. In the past, people had no choice but to write letters to each other (landline phones did exist too, though), it was known as the traditional form of communication, and usually the delivery of letters took a dozens of days. Now, people can send a message or make a phone call at any time, anywhere, without any delay. In my opinion, soon this would result in the complete disappearance of the traditional skill of letter writing.
Technology seems to be subtly destroying the meaningfulness of human interactions, disconnecting us from each other and the world around us, and leading to a menacing sense of isolation in society. We need to go back to simpler times and back to simple communication. People tend to exaggerate the personas they portray because they have much more time to revise and calculate the content rather than a spontaneous face-to-face interaction. Some psychologists and sociologists who have studied usage habits on Twitter, Facebook and popular dating sites say there's little correlation between how people act on the internet and how they act in person. Not to mention, Face to face communication had been the "norm" for thousands of years.
Most things are made much simpler by just googling and searching for words and stories. I think it changed the way we think, the way we write and the way we read. Everything is more to the point and much less details. We may read more because of text messaging, but I wouldn’t consider hat valuable reading. Opening up a book and reading something , that has substance and draws your interest to turn the next page and read more, is what i would call valuable reading.

And the person who is on their phone, checking their emails or reading a text is not even aware of the social catastrophe they are causing.

Addiction to social media via smartphones and computers is a serious problem.

Today I want to try my best to persuade you why you should read books. It is a disappointment that nowadays people read books less often due to the widespread of technology Books were v hundred years ago, but with the invention of radio, television, and the Internet and computer games, people careless for reading books.However, once you complete reading a great written book it will have a great effect on it will motivate you to become a better person and increases your knowlage a lot and provide you with great inspiration.
