Shukhratova Madina (Group 3 ES-1):

Due to modern life style and technologies these days it is obvious that the way people communicate with each other has changed a lot: it became more convenient and easy. However, there are both merits and demerits of technology effect on relationships people make.

Firstly, it should be mentioned that modern world cannot be imagined without all technologies, innovations we have. Because, the time itself requires developments in all spheres of human activities. Therefore, nowadays humanity has a lot of gadgets and other devices which enable people to interact with each other in more convenient, fast and easy way. For example, almost all smartphones have an access to internet, so that a person can communicate with other one by using “Skype” even in very long distances.

On the other hand, these developments lead to abuse of internet. Consequently, here appears a new problem: a lot of young people become internet addicted. Moreover, communication in general becomes virtual. To prove this statement I can bring the example of statistics. According to statistic researches, currently there are four times more people who prefer to communicate “virtually” rather than who would like to interact face-to-face.

So for the reasons I have mentioned above, I think that positive sides of developments made in communication system overweight negative ones. I believe that despite of some problems people face the World has not to stop its development.
