You are probably questioning what is meant by this title. Developing on what is said in that statement, the new error of digital media and the wide range of technology we have today, you can argue has some way caused the loss of communication verbally. What makes me say this?
Social media has reached an epidemic proportion where it is used across the world by a variety of age groups. And with the development of technology we have today, social media can be accessible In many ways. For instance through our phones, laptops, iPad’s, computers etc. And the success of social media has brought most people to rely on that or replace it with verbal communication. For instance how many of your parents have said that you spend too much time on our phones, laptops or spend too much time on Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and all other types of social media? I’ve seen that we can be physically present with people, for instance family or friends but not always verbally present due to spending time on our phones interacting with others. So would you agree that verbal communication has been effected with digital media?
Quoting Albert Einstein, he argues that it has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity, with this what other disadvantage would you say technology has among us?
