Technology can sometimes become a distracting thing For instance right now Im writing this essay on facebook browsing through the web tweeting texting looking at pictures on instagram and listening to music I should just focus on my essay but in the twenty-first century who actually focuses on one thing The answer to that question is simple no one In Gary Small and Gigi Vorgans article Meet Your iBrain they state facts about technology and the many ways it can affect the human brain They state how the not only does technology affect your brain but how it can affect our emotions Although some might argue that technology is not a bad thing the facts stated in the article show some of the negative effects that technology may cause to the human brain causing even one who disagrees like myself to wake up and realize there is no denying the negative side no matter how often the positive is praisedA consequence of watching television or playing video games for an extensive amount of times is that you lose face to face communication with others and social skills As Small and Vorgan state in their article As the brain evolves and shifts its focus toward new technological skills it drifts away from fundamental social skills such as reading facial expressions during conversation or grasping the emotional context of a subtle gesture This demonstrates my point that television and video games can sometimes make you lose social skills because technology has allowed us to be able to communicate with other without ever having to talk to someone face to face Although it seems easier to sometimes text someone rather than talking to them face to face you slowly start to drift away from how to read facial expressions or to be able to understand ones way of communicating by the way their voice becomes higher and the end of a question Therefore one should learn to communicate
