Many years ago communicating with the world and our family and friends across the world was so much more difficult with just snail mail, telegraphs, and many many long distance charges to our telephone bills, and wondering when our mail will get to our recipients. It is incredible how communication has changed the world and day to day communicating with our loved ones around the world has gotten so much easier. Now majority of our world is connected on the internet and use several different types of social networking such as Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, Myspace, Linkedin, Tumblr, Stumble Upon, Digg it, and so many more. Everyday as technology advances and new gadgets are introduced, its interesting how technology has evolved and many inventors, and companies simplify our lives with all these smartphones, Iphones, Blackberry Messenger, tablets and more. Some of us cannot keep up with the trends.
In the olden days nobody had any of these things and how people used to live without technology is so interesting and many people of those days did other things hands on with crafts, inventing games, and a lot of people used to play outside and do more interactive things, but now since all these things have come up, you don’t really see children and adults out there in residential areas playing, or going for a simple bike ride. I think there should be a limit to computer use and technology and make some time for family, friends, and extra curricular activities or simply take a break from gadgets. Although its important to keep in touch with people whom you do not see in your own town and everything, but these gagdets shouldn’t take over your life.
Now that e-mail has been introduced for so many years, postal companies are working less because of paper mail diminishing. I guess its good for the environment and saves trees and paper, but its also not good for the postal workers either, so its a lose lose situation, but e-mail is extraordinary and it acts like paper mail as you can attach files, photos, videos. Don’t get me wrong, I am loving and digging this technology, but its also nice to receive paper mail and it looks more official and it feels nice to open it up. Although E-mail is such an incredible tool, I still think Original forms of communication are far more classy, but then again everybody has their own opinions and are entitled to them. This is just my thoughts on this subject. Use Social and Communication devices, but use them wisely and responsibly.
