Technology has changed people’s communication greatly. Technology hurts human communication because it separates bonds, and people don’t know how to do face to face talking anymore.
With the advent of computers and related technologies of communication, the nature of communication has changed drastically. There are some positive highlights to this change as well as negative highlights to this change based on my experience. In my younger years, the only form of communication was one on one communication or writing through snail mail. However, this is not the case today. Today, I make use of emails, social media, and other chatting forums to communicate both professionally and personally to family, friends, and relatives. I have found this change to have its advantages as well as disadvantages. In this paper, I will discuss how computer-mediated communication has aided my communication as well as how it compares to the type of communication that was available during my younger years. In addition, I will give a comparison between computer-mediated communication and person-to-person communication.
The Impact of Texting Over the last century, technology has infiltrated almost every aspect of human life. From how we communicate, to how we learn, or even to how we do household chores, technology has influenced it all for most people in American society. In Sherry Turkle’s essay, “How Computers Change the Way we think,” she argues how the technological advancements of the computer have changed the way we think and how it has impacted our daily lives in today’s society (287). A specific aspect the author mentions is the way technology has changed the way we communicate with others. Even though Turkle does not specifically mention texting as a primary form of communication, texting has become one of the most popular types of communication and also carries its own way of thinking and aesthetic. Texting as a way of communication has affected grammar and language used, the speed and efficiency of correspondence, and ability to always be connected to those in one's circle of friends, family, and acquaintances.
Technology has made communicating difficult and has slowly ruined people’s friendships and relationships. Henry David Thoreau says, “Society is commonly too cheap. We meet at very intervals, not having had time to acquire any new values to each other.” Interpersonal communication with people is fading away with time, but simultaneously, technology has given people connection with those far from them. Although it does have its advantages, technology has ruined the connection and intimacy people once experienced in a pre-digital age.

Throughout the years people have been given the privilege of interpersonal communication in many forms, such as letters, emails, texts, and social media. Letters were one of the very first mediums people used to communicate, and as the years went by technology improved, and emails were created. Emails served as a faster alternative for people in a business to contact someone else. Following that was the idea of text messaging, not only was it time efficient but also easier. That wasn’t the only thing connecting people all around the world though. Social media wasn’t the most popular to begin with, but as time went by, and it became more personal, people began to take a very big interest in it. Letters, emails, texts, and social media play

Although Karen has made great strides in the business world she also faces some struggles. Her first major problem is that she is a woman with no international connections. Being a woman is hard enough to gain respect and work your way up in the business world, having connections are very important in businesses like Merrill Lynch because a lot of people making big accounts are international client. Her next big problem is hiring people. She has to meet with them many times before she decides if they are good enough to work for this company. She has a big responsibility to make the company successful and if she hires a bad worker it is costing the company mega bucks. Another problem she has is Chung. He is her first Taiwanese worker and she is very unfamiliar of these different cultures and how to incorporate them in her sales. Along with the unfamiliarity of Chung and his

Mediated communication channels, especially ones that allow us to directly interact with others such as mobile phones and social networks, rely primarily on language to achieve shared meaning.”(Bevan, J. L., & Sole, K., 2014. Sec.4.4). We need to pay attention to how much computer mediated communication we use not only because it is the number one way to communicate with others who are close and far away from you but also we can tend to use it way to much and walk right into the wall, literally. “According to Online IT Degree (2011), 200 trillion (that's 200,000,000,000,000) text messages were received in America each day during 2011, which is more than the amount of regular ground mail items received in one year.”(Bevan, J. L., & Sole, K., 2014. Sec.4.4).That is a lot of messages and a lot of time using your phone, and not paying attention to your immediate surroundings. Also mediated communication uses very little nonverbal communication, so no emotions or gestures are there to help the reader understand how the person they are communicating with feels. On the other side by using this type of communication it can make the person reading it focus on what is actually being said rather than they body language being used.. There are good and bad things about text messaging and email, computer communication. I have had some bad experiences, and have vowed to use this type of
ii. However, for many of us, face-to-face communication seems to be a dying art – replaced by text messaging, e-mails, and social media. Human communication and interactions are shaped by available technologies
In Sherry Turkle’s Ted Talk, “Connected, But Alone?”, the speaker laments on how technology is hindering human connectivity. Instead of having face to face conversations, individuals can choose to keep each other at a distance through text messages or e-mails. Contrary to what Turkle states in her presentation, technology and virtual communication help people to stay connected and develop better communication skills than hinder them.
There is a transformation happening today that is completely changing the way that we do things. The ways that we are communicating are shifting from face to face interactions to short, interactive messages. Technology seems to be making it easier to stay connected, but it is restricting our interactions with others and leading to isolation.
