Technology is affecting our community in a negative way
Technology is affecting our community in a negative way. There are many reasons to why technology has affected our community in a negative way. Technology has made us less social and more isolated. Technology has made our sleep habits worse especially for teens. Another really important reason to why technology is affecting our community is the increase of bullying.
Technology has made us less social and more isolated. We have isolated ourselves by walking around in our own little world listening to our music or being on a phone when there are people to talk to around us. Since our lack of socialness, we lack social skills. Since social media and technology has come out it has caused us not to meet new people face to face which results in us losing our social skills.
Technology has made our sleeping habits worse especially for teens. Since we get stuck to online activities this causes us to stay up late which then makes it hard to fall asleep. Since phones can decrease the amount of melatonin which is a chemical your brain makes to fall asleep it affects our sleeping habits. So, it is best for phones and any sort of technology to be out of your room for the best night sleep.
Technology isn’t just used for kids to get on social media it has also increased to amount of online bullying. Since it’s easier for kids to bully online they say things that they would not say in real life. Since the increase of online bullying it has also increased the amount of suicides.
Overall technology has affected out community in many bad way. By the increase of bullying, our poor sleep habits, and and the lack of social skills.
