Have the day that Albert Einstein predicted arrive already?
Albert Einstein once said, ¨ I fear the day that technology will surpass our human interaction, the world will have a generation of idiots¨
The day that Albert Einstein feared may have finally arrived. Technology is used in our daily life. Our lives are becoming dependent on technology.
We used it on the way, at work, at school, and almost everywhere. We now can connect with people around the world in seconds. We now can be connected at all times.

By having this devices during those time, little by little the human interaction start to loose its value. Technology has affected almost every aspect of our lives from our thought processes and work habits to our capacity for deeply thinking and how we feel about ourselves, our partners, our friends and even strangers.
Mark Glaser observes that “Whether you are dating someone, interviewing someone, or just meeting someone for the first time, there is a special quality about face-to-face interactions. You can catch the subtle tone in their voice, see their expression as it changes from sad to outraged, and you can look them in the eye to see if you trust them.” Many people have date someone online and have gone in a relationship after that, but having an interaction through a device will never replace a face to face communication because you don't personally get to see or hear the other person's point of view.

However a lot of kids are letting this social media or this devices to take control of their social lives and slowly their ability to have a face to face interaction is decreasing.
Even at online classes, kids ability of interaction can decrease as well.
kburt94 suggests “in school kids have the opportunity to learn how to, follow certain rules, like raising their hands when they wish to speak, not talking when other are talking, not chewing gum, not leaving until the bell rings, exhibiting patience toward slower learners” Kids or even young ones won't also respecting one another, showing caring, or the ability to be able to work with other and get to know other peoples personality. These rules are important to be able to learn how to function in a society, to be able to have a good conversation.
