I believe that this is a powerful statement, because there have been countless times that I have logged onto my Facebook and they have had popups telling me to share my phone number and all of my personal information and in my opinion when you log onto your networking site you don’t want to share all of your personal information. Although Facebook realized that they are not doing their part with privacy issues and released a ‘Groups’ section so that people could communicate and talk through
People will love you more and appreciate you more if you text faster like less than a minute or two depending on what they wrote in the text. First, people around the world have a phone. Phones are used for communication. Texting is the most useful thing people use than talking on the phone. They are some slow and fast texters.
I have begun developing a dependency on the cell phone, allowing it to organize my day-to-day life, allowing it to become my distraction, and allowing it to become my memory for the remaining days of my life. Because of cell phone use, I no longer wish to communicate to anybody face-to-face on a daily basis, I cannot memorize any one person's number (including my own), and it disrupts my daily life. Communicating used to be an enjoyable experience for me, the greetings were always so friendly, and the ongoing conversations were always so exciting. Text messaging on the cell phone changed all that for me. I cannot recall the last time I ever sat down with a friend at a cafe to just talk.
Nowadays, technology takes over people, especially teenagers. No matter where I go, I always see most of teenagers concentrate on their smartphones and so do I. Technology seems to be an important part of my life. For example, if I leave home and forget my iPhone, I will feel very anxious like I forget my soul. Furthermore, these things make me have more laziness.
In the argument “Tapping into Text Messaging” by Janet Kornblum, says teens, techies and other early adopters leading the charge to text say it is a great way to communicate when they are too busy to talk or when making a call would be rude or impractical. Just like being in the class room when there is an important incoming call, texting back is a more necessary way to get back to the person instead of disrupting the class and wasting learning time. Texting only takes a few seconds to do and could turn a 10 minute phone conversation into a 1 minute conversation. Text messaging can easily be discreet while being in the class room if turned off or on silent. As long as the student remembers to do so, their phone will not cause a distraction in class.
I agree with her in the senses that were losing something human when we substitute technology for face-to-face contact. Online relationships take longer to develop, because you can’t become emotionally attached to someone. In person you know what mood they are in and what’s on their mind, but technology erases that. You also lose visual contact. Recently I started to work at Texas Roadhouse and constantly notice couples on their phones rather then interacting with each other.
Online chat sites are another way technology is working its magic. Kids, teens and adults go on these online chatting websites and often finding themselves staying on these websites for hours, or even days at a time, severely limiting their real human interactions. People with a great family and great friends go on these chat websites and waste away their lives talking to a screen. The internet and the technology we use to access it are a way for people to hide from their real life problems. When people go on the internet, they feel like they can say whatever they want, mostly because they don’t have to say it to anyone’s face.
Spencer: I knew who I was when they found me and I knew my family and my friends would be worried. I just wanted to fold up and stop and I didn't want to think anymore. Dr. Sullivan: You were overwhelmed? Spencer: Yeah well I wasn't Spencer Hastings for almost a full day and nobody else showed up to take the job so guess I'm stuck with it. Dr. Sullivan: Because you're the only person in the world that can be you.
Change is something many people fear, so technology, an ever changing part of our society, is often times looked upon with reserve. Some of the most popular pieces of technology in the world today are cell phones, and with their rising popularity comes much controversy. Cell phones are an extremely useful item to have at all times throughout the day whether it be for emergency reasons, all of the useful things a cell phone contains, or learning new things about technology to use later in life. Although allowing students to have cell phones in class can be a distraction, there are a lot of reasons of why they should be allowed.One very important example is if there is ever an emergency in your family or your classroom you can easily call whoever you need to. If something happened in class you could call 911 and may prevent further disaster.
Cell phones: Talking and Texting With the vast majority of our country’s population using cell phones and with the advent of text messaging as a way of fast communication, people are able to communicate more easily than ever before. Cell phones are bridging communication gaps and allowing people to converse at any time instantly. However, using cell phones can be a health hazard and using them in certain situations illegal. Even with considering these concerns, text messaging has become exceptionally popular, especially with the younger generations, thus making the need for us to talk with one another almost obsolete. Talking on the phone has evolved over the years from speaking to an operator who will patch a call through to being able to dial a number on a touch screen and moments later a person is on the line.
