Does Technology Isolate us From Society? Technology is a way that all six billion people in the world can communicate with each other. We can follow people from all over the world on Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter, and many more social media sites. Technology gives us ways to communicate with celebrities, your child that you recently sent off to college or the world, and your friends and family who live in different states than you. Technology in video games allows us to play in multiplayer mode with our friends, while being at our own houses. New advantages with technology is that we can text, call, and use the internet all on one device. Also, technology plays a great role in the medical field. I do not think technology isolates us from society, I think that technology connects us with one another in a unique way. There are many ways to use technology. Texting, calling, internet, and social media are some examples. Social media sites like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr allow us to share our lives with our friends and family. Since I’m in college now and I am three hours away from my family and my friends go to different colleges, I use Facebook and Instagram to keep in touch with them. They get to see that I am doing okay and adjusting well to college life. I believe that with using social media sites it can provide our families with some reassurance that we are doing okay and are happy. My Aunt lives in Kentucky and one of my Grandmother’s lives in Iowa.
