Technology is great and has improved humanity dramatically within the past 50 years. Think large appliances and where we’d be without them.. think vehicles.. cellphones…think mass media such as television and Internet.
All this technology was created to benefit humanity by making things more efficient and that it does but it does have its drawbacks. If you look around wherever you go you could probably suggest the robot takeover has begun (just kidding, kinda).
We’ve become so excited and obsessed over the advances in technology we refuse to put our devices down. Smartphones and tablets are captivating for entertainment purposes and can be efficient for organization but are mind-sucking time wasters when overused. Most people refuse to turn the TV off when they get home from work, binge watching complete seasons over a single night is becoming more and more common. It’s so normal now-a-days for people to have unhealthy attachments to their devices.
Try to separate someone from their distraction and watch out!
Most people identify themselves with their social media accounts and refuse to give up their phone for the day. Most people look forward to watching a movie or TV show when they get home from work and don’t turn off the TV until they go to bed.
Most people feel paralyzed and need to remain attentive to their screens. Whatever new craze that is about to be, technology fanatics have to have it.

Television nowadays is so good and there’s so much variety. Social media can be good to establish a network of strong connections.
To each their own when it comes to how you use your technology just remember not to lose yourself. Media can have strong influences on a person’s personality and behavior. Remember your values and remember moderation is key.
