Like everything else in life, social networking has positive along with negative effects. Do you remember having dinner with your family about ten years ago? You probably didn’t have a cellphone of your own and instead of texting in the table, you were sharing memories with your parents and siblings telling them how your day was. Nowadays, teenagers are glued to their cellphones and don’t go anywhere without them, they even go to the bathroom with them! This is crazy! We should be spending more time with our families and friends instead of our eyes and fingers being glued to our electronics. But technology also has its positive effects, for example; you can now type your resumes instead of having to hand write them, you can skype with your family that lives across the country, and even pay bills online! It makes life a little easier and also makes you a little more lazy! I can share personal stories on how technology affects my life; When I am traveling to another state and get lost I no longer have to use a big paper map to get around, I can just type in the address on my phone and use the GPS on my cellphone. Going back to the cons of technology, I cannot live without my cellphone. I take it everywhere I go and have become very dependent on it! Once I graduate from college, I will continue to use technology to further my knowledge in my career. I can take online classes and not have to go to campus, and I will also use technology to apply for jobs. I do not want to depend too much on technology so I will also do hands on projects to continue to learn! Remember that technology is good to a certain point, spend time with your family and friends and leave your phone charging in your room!

Is technology good or bad?
