Changes in the way of communication
In the 21st century, science and technology is developing in an uNPRecedent way, thus changing our lives in every respect, especially in the way of communication. People have different views regarding whether the way of communication has changed for the better or for the worse.
Some people hold that technology has made communication ever convenient. In the past, people had to talk face-to-face, which could be very time-consuming. Now, with the advent of smart phones, people no longer communicate in the old ways. Instead, most people text, send voice messages and make video calls through social networking apps such as Wechat. No matter where you are, communication can be done in a blink of the eye.
However, others regard technology as the culprit behind a decline in face-to-face talking. They believe that the best way of communicating is face-to-face talking for communication. It is not only about languages, but also emotions and feelings. Therefore, people should make the effort to avoid becoming over-reliant on our devices.
In my perspective, although technology has led to less face-to-face talking, we have to give credit to technology for expanding the comparatively limited communication options we had available in the past. We can still talk to each other in person, but we can also be thankful for the ability to choose when communicating today.
