Communication Between People
Technology over the period of years has drastically advanced. This has brought with it both positive and negative impacts. As a result it has affected various industries including the communication industry.
Through the use of technology in communication, communication has been made simpler. This means that people can communicate with another in a simpler way as it would have been ten years ago. Therefore, the world is more of a global village as business could be conducted all over the world at the same time by anyone with the use of technology in communication (Barney 35).
With the introduction of the email system, 3G and 4G internet speed, and video calls, communication has become cheaper and faster as compared to the past. This means that technology has made life easier through its advancements over the period. With reduced costs, people can communicate effectively as they would not be bothered of the costs that await them.
Not only does it have advantages, it also comes with its disadvantages. With the use of technology in communication, the privacy of individuals is no longer safe. One can access your information at any time and cause harm to your life with just access of the internet. There have increased cases of fraud over the internet with hackers accessing the information of other people hence posing a threat (Coates 24).
Technology also has increased global tension all over the world. With countries adopting the latest technologies in their communication channels, their weapons systems are more deadly. This means that technology has also is its disadvantages just as advantages.
All said and done, communication has made life easier over the period of years. This is due to its reduced costs, accessibility and speed. In simple terms, communication brings more people closer than it draws them away.
