What are some impacts or potential issues with being overly dependent or addicted to our devices?
Less-Active Lifestyle and probably causing ill health
While the smartphone revolution has made our lives easy, it has also made us lazy. Today, the whole world is at our fingertips, and thus we don’t have to work or move around like we did previously to get things done. Our sedentary lifestyle and lack of physical activities can be partly attributed to the over-dependence on smartphones.
Our critical thinking skills are almost dead:-
Today most of the people do not invent, they do business to solve people problem. They can sell anything and every human being is targeted, customers. They are collecting data, what you search, where you click, what you buy, how you react to certain copywriter’s text. This is impacting our life because they are creating products based on our search results and technologies habits.
For example, if you or your employees are busy watching YouTube videos and using Facebook in office time then it will reduce the productivity level at some point. If you have more IT infrastructure or fewer quality products then its cost you time.
Changes in behaviors and elevation of the human greed.
We are losing our patience. Our behavior is changed in a second. For example, if the internet is slow then you can see your face how it is. If someone is late to reply, then see your reaction. Technologies changed our patience level from high to low and low to high within the speed of second.
An internet addictive person spend too much time on being socialization through online social media and forget to importance of actual real friends. They don’t make duration of the time should standardize for relatives.
