How does technology affect the way people of all ages live? Well to start off, it has benefited us in so many different ways. The cell phones and computers have drastically changed over the last few decades. Phones are now touch screen and so are some computers. Technology corporations are making everything so compact and little that way paying customers can take their devices everywhere with them. Technology also has concepts that are disappointing in everyday life. Many people are concerned with the way children rely on texting, emailing, and social networking.

Doctors have now linked carpel tunnel to over usage of the cell phones. That’s when something needs to be done about how much parents are allowing kids on their phones! Another disappointing concept is the social network. Citizens need to watch what they say on the internet because it can come back to haunt them. If someone is trying to get a job, the managers will be able to see what your background history is all through social network sites. Social networking is also very dangerous due to predators that search through the internet trying to find young people to stalk and attack. That is why parents should always check their children’s Facebook page or whatever they may have to see who they’re
