Technology has pushed our generation to greater heights in different avenues. From huge strides in our medical field to Google glasses and 4D movies but how has this changed the way we speak to each other? Texting is a form of communication but its been proven that speaking on the phone is almost non existent and doesn’t have as much importance. Texting or instant messaging are the biggest forms of communication but seeing and hanging out with people face to face is no longer the norm. But why?
In doing research for this topic it went from technology changing the way we communicate and how we behave to technology changing our actual personalities.
