My Thoughts On The Pbs Program, Digital Nations Chaffey College/ Eng 1 A Assignment

575 words - 3 pages

While watching ​Digital Nations, ​I noticed that there are still lots of similarities then, almost nine
years ago. We as a society are still very much dependent on technology, even more so now. It
is difficult now to find anyone who doesn't have a smartphone, and isn't using it for every aspect
of their life. We are still constantly multitasking in our every day lives, I feel as if it's becoming
the every day norm. If you're not doing more than one thing at a time nowadays, you will
typically be called lazy. It isn't frowned upon in today's society as it was back then. We do live in
a society that is heavily controlled by technology. In the video someone mentioned at the
beginning that going on a vacation for two weeks genuinely meant that you would be unplugged
from the "real" world back home, when they were growing up. In 2010, that no longer applied,
just how it doesn't in today's society. We live in a world where if you don't post about your
vacation, does it truly mean you were on vacation?
My personal view on technology is, I am all for it, in moderation. I understand the great appeal
of social media, hey I've been an oversharer at some point in my young adult life. At the
beginning hype of Twitter and Instagram, to me the top on the go social media platforms, I had
found my self constantly checking and growing an obsession towards it. It's not healthy. I had to
take a step back and realize I was no longer living my life for me, but for the likes. In moderation
technology is good, I don't think we should become so...
