As I have notice here in myLot there are many user who does a writing challenge. So out of envy I also I also decided to make a writing challenge for myself. :) I found a writing challenge in pinterest and decided to follow it but of course make some changes along the way. :) 1. Five Problems with Technology Technology really made our life easier and entertaining but there are still problems that are caused by technology. 1. Health problem, with the rise of technology, our body was affected by its radiation. 2. Less outdoor activity for children 3. Critical thinking was lessen, with just a simple search we can easily find answers to our question thus lessening our ability to think for answers 4. Crimes in the cyber world are difficult to solve (for my country). 5. Socializing with family and friends minimizes. I don't say that technology is bad, but of course we need to use it moderately and responsibly. :) Feel free to agree or disagree on my 5 problems. :) Image source: Pinterest

Regarding number 1 - it also can't be good for your body to be sitting in front of a computer all day, but I agree with everything you've said.

yaps, it is not advicable for our body to be exposed to so much radiation for a long period of time

you work continuously on? on computers? if that's the case you need to have a break one in a while so that you won't harm your body. :)

I like you list! I do worry a lot about kids staying inside to play games and do whatever online since so many future health problems await them if getting out and being active is not encouraged.

I agree, growing up kids need to play outside and use their metabolism, because during those time their metabolism is fast. Hope we can encourage kids to go out and play. :)

Wow. This one is good. 1.Technology takes away all our time. We no longer have time for our families or friends. 2.We prefer emails and messages over face to face conversations. 3.Online shopping/ordering has made life easier. But we've become lazy. We no longer want to step out of our homes. 4.It is easy to be fake and hide from things with an online identity. It may cause a lot of problems. 5.We become dependent on technology and lose our tempers when something is wrong with it. It is an addiction. There are a lot of advantages too. We wouldn't be here if not for technology :)

More than a problem, technology is an advantage in this era. I have been using technology, laptop, smart phone and my life has turned into more simplicity; I don´t have to rush into crowded places anymore; I can work at the comfort of my home and at my own pace. My health has not been affected by the use of technology; on the contrary, my system has adapted to the new technology. My sight is more acute and my ears can stand the high decibels of sound. Crime in the internet is not going to decrease and people should be aware of that. Social interaction can be done through the internet. It is like typing words and receiving answers. It is more practical and you don´t have to stand the gestures of the other party. The only problem I see with technology is the price. If you want to have the latest smart phone; for example, you have to spend quite some dollars; otherwise, wait a few months before the prices decrease.

True technology has really helped us in many ways. :) Those problems are what I experienced and saw due to the rise of technology. Well this list may vary from person to person. Thank you for your opinion :)

I sometimes have "writer's block" and those 30 things to write about you found in pinterest are great writing prompts. Thanks. As for technology, it's not bad per se. It's their application which can be use for good or evil.

Yaps. :) I really depends on how we use it. If We'll be responsible on using it I guess those problem will be easily avoided. :) Yes, this list can really help me :) You can also do it. :)

I agree with your points, working too much in front of a computer can also damage our view and our eyes.
