Computer technology is used in a variety of different ways for everyday life. This has become everybody’s necessity whether they realize it or not. Everybody is using technology to some degree, let it be by setting an alarm clock or using a computerized self driving car. In everyday life, technology is used in education, industry, medical procedures, medical research, banking and business. There are many advantages as well as disadvantages to technology and social networks; however, I feel by being careful with your social media use the advantages can outweigh the disadvantages.
We can benefit from computers, which are the advantages of it. For example, it helps us keep in contact with our family and re-connect with old friends or make new friends by using any services such as Twitter, Snapchat, WhatsApp, Skype and many more, that’s what is called social networks and the benefit of social networks that you can stay in touch with your friends and family from all around the world. So, you can send them a picture or post some funny videos on their “wall” to make them see it; another huge benefit is that if you press “like” or “follow” on pages or blogs that you are interested to, you always get the newest piece of information and having fun.
But at the same time there are disadvantages to the use of technology and social networks, the probably worst disadvantage is that your whole life is saved on the internet forever. That means, nothing can be completely removed from your browser. If you are on social networks, everyone can find you there. So, it’s a big risk of being stalked by someone dangerous. They may find out where you live to rape or injure you because of such strange reasons, that not even them could complain it logically.
In my opinion is that social networks are fundamental a very good thing, because you have all your friends, not essential how far they are away, “around” you. I use some networks even everyday and I try not to post too much information about my location or my plans to stay away from troubles, that’s why you have to be really carful with using technology.
Finally by completing this report we have learned that we are more aware of computer technology and how it plays a massive role in both public and private life. Nowadays in the 21st century, we rely a lot on computer technology. Many people put a lot of their private life on the internet which leaves it open for other people to see which can result in robbery, people been very vulnerable and loss of communication as computers have taken over their lives. This is shown children for the future that there will be a major lack of communication skills and physical interaction with other individuals.
