It’s 2018 guyz, and it’s impossible to do anything without of technology means smartphone and internet connection.
You can pay for anything likes your mobile recharge, pay bills, any bank to bank tranzations,(paytm, paypal) etc, even chat with any customer care representative with your smartphone, without any hezitation. But the over use of technology decreasing people to people intrection with each other.
I read an article where i found an author says that, “People in 21st century are alone. We have so many ways of communicating, yet we are so alone.” And i think the lines are so true.
Technology and social media like Facebook, Instagram is making us and our next generation makes antisocial, they spends more time on facebook and Twitter rather than playing a sport and being physical activity.
The more time we spends with our smartphones and we are being less social.
Technology is suposed to makes us more connected with friends by allowing us to stay in touch with oir friends and family by using social media like facebook, twitter, instagram and of course sharing photos, texting tag in facebook photos and video calls.
But are our smartphone getting in the way of socilizing? Does technology make us feel more alone?
Technology makes you more alone because we are depending on our phones, tablets and laptops and other technological equpments like gaming console or etc;
when you start too attached to your favorite technoloy (there is a viral game called PUBG Mobile is a best option to time pass in 2018 and you get more antisocial).
In social media you find many of famous persons who are very popular in internet like Youtube, Instagram millions of followers and you just yourself the amount of followers someone eles has.
There is a term that is commonly popular and used word called, “FOMO”- short for “Fear of MISSING Out”. Yes this is the creazy thing .
If for some relevent reason you don’t check your Facebook or Instagram’s news feed every 10 minutes are you really missing out?. That is called FOMO.
Many people built relationships online and for while they won’t feels lonly they will be frustracted coz you can’t intreact with person face to face.
