Today the world revolves around different kinds of technology that are used for many things, some are necessary and some are not. Technology is a big part of our lives, and many would say we couldn’t live without it. Weather people like it or not technology is here, and it’s not going away. But a big question is; Is technology good or bad? Advancements in technology are bad For many reasons. Some are anyone who has a laptop can find someones personal information, people don’t get as much face to face interaction because they are always talking on the internet, and kids aren’t using proper grammar online, so they are losing their writing skills.
One important reason that advancements in technology are bad is Personal identifying information can be found by anyone who has a computer. People’s personal information, like address and medical history can be found, because almost everything is online. ID theft is a growing problem in the United States. “The scope of ID theft has grown so quickly that it now takes up a substantial and growing portion of law enforcement resources.” This means that ID theft is becoming a big problem.

Another equally important reason is people don’t get as much physical interaction, because they are always talking on the internet. People text their friends instead of seeing them face to face. People need physical interaction, so they can have social skills. “Kids don’t know how to interact with others when they meet them in-person or what gesture they should carry.” This is because they are spending so much time on the internet that they are forgetting how to talk to people when they see them. Technology these days is so fast, that kids get frustrated when it takes more than a second to load. Kids aren’t as patient as they should be. “Technology has sidelined ‘patience’ from our lives”. This is because technology is usually very fast, so people get used to not having to wait. Kids can be so impatient that they get anxious when something takes a millisecond longer to load, and it shouldn’t be this way.
