Is mordern technology creating a void in personal relationships ???

May 20, 2008 7:27am CST
Everyday we hear of new technology in this and that and somehow we tend to let of the personal touch that was involved before the advent of tech. Like we used to sit and pen down letters, pouring our hearts out in ink. Now that part is definitely at an end if not over. Yet, like for instance the mobile phone keeps us in touch with our loved ones all the time. What is your opinion ?

In real sense, new technologies are simpler and more efficient to usage, yet it has somewhat really eroded the real, small but significant moments and ways of keeping touch with your loved ones. Its rightly said, few words written personally in ink holds higher weight than a text message, yet, with the fast-moving world, the real importance of these have lost, yet if we personally still know its worth, we can still use these ancient methods, nothing can really stop us :)

I really don't think it creates a void in my life. It helps me to stay in touch with my friends and family more than anything. I work online so it is easy for me to send them an email any time that I want to. It is free of charge and I can get my work done while speaking to or with them also. I think the internet is a great way to stay in touch with others.

yeah i can see what your saying say as if the Text messages , like most people would Text like I love you and their GF or BF would accept that , i mean dont get me wrong its nice to think of your lover and send them effection but i think its way better if you call them and say it to let them hear you ..
