“What a computer is to me is it’s the most remarkable tool that we have ever come up with. It’s the equivalent of a bicycle for our minds – Steve Jobs”
It is not common to us adults and young people of this generation that technology has become a very big part in our lives.
The changes it brought to our homes, in our workstations, schools and even to our community, you can’t deny that technology serves as a divider between generations.
Most parents saw the benefits of technology for their kids and grandparents too can see that technologies like computers are useful but hard to use especially with their age and problems with their eyesight.
Yet, as times have changed, we’re seeing formerly disruptive technologies connecting older and younger generations in ways never before thought possible. Disruptive technologies such as pornographic sites, video games that cause bad influence to the minds of the young generation and above all, there are people who are using technologies for personal reason like in politics and the like.
Is there anything good about technologies today?
Yes, there are still good thing about technologies. Some mobile apps, social networks and hottest games that promotes educational learnings and others who are into promoting good things when it comes to using technology as communication or part of their daily routine.
To give us more learning about technology for better communication with our loved ones, here are some ways in which innovations in communications that helped and even deepened family relationships through different generations:
Let us all face it today, we are now living in a world where all the people, not only the want it, but they also expect it which is the immediate access to everything.
That includes extended communication to people not just in physical items but everything as a package.
These are user-friendly designs like the iPhone and many other devices in which it allows them to reach friends across the country using their smartphones or even desktops.
Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Skype are some of the best social media features that the young and the adults in this generation are using to communicate with their loved ones abroad or to be updated in everything that is happening in news, entertainment and everything that captures their interest.
Tech Savvy Users
We’ve come a long way from the time when a teenager’s worst nightmare was getting a Facebook friend request from a parent. Everything is different ever since the world of social media has evolved.
With new features like text and voice chats becoming more commonplace, mobile games are a perfect example of how tech is transforming family interactions.
People around the world know what Skype is all about. It plays a large part in the adoption of alternative communication tools, thank goodness for its free video calling and you’ll ever need is good internet speed and you are good to go.
It is just like an old-fashioned landline calling, the best of it is that both users are sitting at home in front of their webcam chatting and missing each other.
As the world has become more mobile, new services have emerged that have become popular with millions of international users.
So, obviously, technology communication plays a big part in our lives as what I have said earlier. Without communication, perhaps we won’t be able to contact our loved ones abroad or contact our family nearby.
