misuse of technology

Technology is like a mirror with 100% reflection. If you use it in a good way, it reflects you the best and if you are using in the wrong direction, it will lead you to the worst of worst. This is very clear, you cannot blame technology. It is only us who should have the proper limits on the usage of technology. But it is human nature to blame others for one’s own failure. That is why the word “excuses” exists, created by humans to lessen the own burdens by putting the blame on others.

Technology has advanced itself almost to the peak. It improves the quality of lives of human being. Advance technology also increases the lifespan by a better medical care and improves our ways of communication to other people who are very far from us. We are talking about developing artificial intelligence. Artificial intelligence can alter the perspective of humans in the future. Within the next few years, we may end up landing on Mars. This will be the biggest milestone for human in term of multi-planetary species. All these show that advanced technology is very beneficial for us. But this is only the half picture.

The internet is one of the most powerful dynamics shaping our intellectual, social and moral spheres. This interconnected system of the network that joins computer around the world is controlling the world today. The beauty of the internet is how limitless it is. Want to learn a programming language? You can. Want to learn about other cultures. You can easily learn. But with power, responsibility comes with it and not all people can understand the importance of responsibility. They have been lost in the power and completely forgotten the main reason why technology was invented. We abused our technology in every possible way.

Wastage Of Time

Wastage Of Time Technology

Almost every college student is guilty of spending countless hours procrastinating by watching TV or browsing social media. This is not a healthy way of spending their precious time for any human being. We are losing our precious time on the internet. A lot of distractions are available on the internet that can easily attract and manipulate us.

Negative Information

Negative Information

The Internet has become well of negativity nowadays and it offers you everything you can possibly think of searching. Along with valuable information it provides, it also makes a negative impact, because the negative contents are also available on the internet. Pornography, video related to violent crimes, terrorism, documentaries on serial killers etc. and the list goes on. If you are surfing the internet, you are most likely to stumble across negative information. This can be considered as misuse of the internet because most people search for the negative information first without being aware of its consequences.

Cyber Bullying

Cyber Bullying

Another misuse of advanced technology is cyberbullying. People use fake profiles on social networking sites and they anonymously threaten a person, use abusive language and troll the people for no reasons. Victims of cyberbullying face complex psychological issues that disturb their daily routine life and work. According to the various studies, half of the teens in most of the countries are affected by the cyberbullying.

In the age of such advanced technology, people should use it more wisely. People should start being productive instead use limitless time on social media browsing. We should educate our next generation about ethical knowledge and how they can use it for the growth and betterment of humanity.
