Although technological advancements have made communication easier, personal communication has been greatly affected (Gonzales & Hancock, 2011). This is because, since computers are readily available at people’s homes they have chosen that instead of having face to face conversation, they stay in front of these computers so as to keep in touch with the outside world. With respect to the challenge technology presents, the aim of this paper is to provide discussion of the dangers that are present in a society that depends on communicating via computer screens rather than face-to-face communication.
To begin with, a society that prefer to communicate by use of computer faces a challenge of poor communication. With the advancement of technology, the ability to catalogue and understand evictions have become part and parcel of the modern day conversation. Although in most cases people are using the computer technology to communicate with friends and families, the quality of communication has continued to be weaker (Gonzales & Hancock, 2011). For instance, kids who spend most of their time on computer screens than with adults or other kids struggle to create strong relationships and understand these emotions, thus become dependent on others for communication.
Another danger that lies in a society that depend on computer communication rather than face to face conversation is privacy concerns (Johnson, 2014). Being a public network, the internet data through a myriad of computer nodes as messages travel to the recipient from the sender. Because of this factor, a third has the ability to intercept these communications that pass through the internet. In addition, applications may collect information from a computer and share it to the internet where marketers use this information to their benefit. Therefore, unlike the face to face conversations, communications over the computer present the challenge can easily attract scums which are harmful to the society.
