How Technology Has Changed Communication

How Technology Has Changed Communication

Technology has changed so much in our lives. I don’t think we truly realize just how much it has changed it, and shaped our lives. If you stop and think about it, it’s absolutely mind blowing. Technology has really changed the way we communicate. Think on it, before you try disagreeing. It honestly has, and it’s astonishing. Even Father George Rutler is surprised at how much technology has changed the way we communicate with people. How has it changed it though? Let’s discuss.

Cell Phones

Cell phones help us communicate with others at ease. They are such an essential part of our everyday lives now. To think that cell phones used to not even exist, when virtually everyone has one. There are so many different types of cell phones available now, but that is absolutely beside the point. Before cell phones we could only make calls while at home. With the technology that we have now, we are able to have a phone with us wherever we go. We can call, or message our friends and family whenever we need, or want, to. We are even able to take pictures with our cell phones. They play a vital part in how we communicate with others in the world that we live in. The apps that we have on our phone, let’s talk about that.

Social Media

Social Media are apps that you can have on your cell phone. If it’s a smart phone that is. Social media apps like Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, TikTok, Instagram, etc. are all ways that we have to communicate with each other. These apps on our phones allow us to be friends with whoever we want, even from people all over the world. It’s amazing. It gives us the chance to make friends from places where we have never even been before. We are able to keep in touch with all of our friends and family on it. We are even able to keep up with old friends that we had gone to school with, or old coworkers that we were friends with at previous jobs. Social media apps are truly amazing technology that we have available to us.

We are even able to keep up with our favorite celebrities on these apps as well. We can follow them, and see their posts. We can see when our favorite musician might be coming to a town near us. We can see new movies or TV shows that our favorite actress, or actor, might be starring in. This technology is out of this world amazing.
We would have never thought that we would be able to communicate through cell phones, or social media, 50 years ago. Technology has come along so far away. It still continues to improve, and get better, every day. Technology is ever evolving. It’s astounding to think about how we communicate now, compared to how they communicated in the early 1900s, and before. Father George Rutler is even amazed by how technology has changed communication.
