Over the last two decades, technology has evolved, and gadgets and the Internet are the main agents responsible for this technological development.
This evolution of technology has expanded in all areas of activity, from medicine to production lines, including education, sports, psychology.
The main advantage is the quick, easy and so useful access to information.
The Internet is a huge universal library, the largest there can be and where we can find articles, books, publications, magazines, textbooks, encyclopedias or various treatises. Users find here quick and easy answers to almost any topic, multiple information to document, digital books, everything in the shortest time and just by one click of navigation.
A second advantage is provided by social networks such as Facebook, Instagram and applications such as Snapchat, which gives us the opportunity to share photos, to get in touch with people from any corner of the world, to get closer to worlds removed and always be up to date with new trends in all areas.
A first disadvantage would be that caused by the state of immobility caused by the dependence on games, series or social networks: there are young people, but also adults who spend most of their daily time, around 9 hours/day with games.
Another disadvantage is the long-term exposure to radiation emissions from the screens of electronic devices, which causes serious disorders and health problems. Sight is most affected by prolonged exposure to the screen of electronic devices. Also, the quality of sleep suffers when we use the mobile phone before falling asleep due to the emanations of blue rays, and back pain or spinal deformity are the result of an incorrect and prolonged position adopted on the chair in the office.
The disadvantages also come from the equipment used, which, despite the high degree of performance offered by the latest technological achievements, can be totally inoperative in case of non-existence, interruption or poor connection to a network or when the Internet does not work.
If technology could be used only for beneficial and not destructive purposes for mankind, the evolution of human intelligence would be auspicious. Technological development has equal advantages, through the huge contributions from all fields of activity, as well as disadvantages, in that simple, human joys can be eliminated.
