Technology is an advancement with both negative and positive effects. One of the most popular negatives is how hard it has become to have a simple conversation with an individual face to face. it has become hard to get to know anyone with everybody walking around looking down at their iphones, and headphones in their ear to avoid speaking to or hearing you. We live in a world where elementary school students have smart phones and are more technically advanced than some adults. Imagine in a couple years, small talk will not even be a problem because you may never have to leave your house to have a conversation with somebody. As a society we are beginning to neglect the importance of actually having face to face conversations. We are depending solely on technology because of how safe some individuals feel behind a computer screen. As a society we have to get out of that comfort zone and put fourth more effort to get to know people without technology.
