Today, we are entrapped by the technology. We find and make use of technology every day. People are getting more and more attracted to the use of technology. It was a “want” some years back but now it has become the need of everyone. We make use of a smartphone for our communication, we are using smart watches and laptops for our office work. Not only that, we are getting involved in making our daily appliances smart e.g. nowadays we have smart refrigerators and smart washing machines in our houses. We can safely say that our lives are greatly affected by the use of technology.
Technology is helping us a lot in speeding up our daily tasks. From getting up in the morning until the end of the day we use technology for our ease. But is the use of mostly positive or mostly negative?
What are the long term effects of living in a technology world? Are these mostly positive or negative?
There is a thin line between the negative use of technology and the positive use, we can cross this line at any time.
For example, we make use of google maps for our ease in the assistance of maps but this technology can also be exploited and use against us which can cause us privacy issues. We have all of our lives on social media, which we upload it ourselves but can this data be used against us? Yea it can.
So we should be picky about how we use technology so that we leave no loopholes and we cannot be exploited. We should know what kind of data we are provided and it the platform safe or not. We should now share our credit card info with anyone online as it can be hacked.
