We re Always Clicking Over a period of 200 years human beings have created a plethora of new technology in hopes of easing our everyday lives From printing press to television we have been changing people s way of life Lule and creating a mass communication culture By doing so we have created a new world that encourages a uni ed sense of the American lifestyle Lule but at the same time lost a sense of individualism Without realizing it we have developed an addiction for technology to the extent that it has hindered the way we act in everyday life How does our addiction to technology speci cally to our phones and computers change the communication structure of our society and the way we perceive ourselves and other individuals Communication has always been through authentic human to human interaction But since the invention of the Internet in the 20th century texting with our mobiles have stolen communication from public to private spheres Rheingold We are currently living in an era of technological advancements With the power of current devices we have been able to interact with the world more than ever before yet at the same time we are the least connected from those around us Some may argue that due to the ease of communication in this age we have turned our authentic interactions into those that are more super cial Our ability to surf the net whenever we please have created a new interface for contact cyber interaction Although today s electronics enable us to ful ll our socializing needs through the touch of a screen we are gradually becoming more mechanical and less humane Rheingold Technology today allows us to hide behind a screen and create identities that may not express our true selves We are hiding behind screens and creating identities that may not express our true selves but is this truly interaction How are we to build relationships when the ability to create verbal cues to express emotions and to establish trusts are unachievable through the web To some degree it is necessary that we live in a world that is made of clicks Christin because our society has established its foundation on it But it is important for us to learn that to maintain certain social standards in our society we must confront our cyber interaction and in times revert back to our authentic way We should take this as an incentive to cut our use of electronics and begin to reestablish human to human connections Implications may arise when people argue that we are still receiving human to human interaction through the uses of video chats skype and FaceTime Not only that but people who make a living through the intemet may argue that the web is the future and to continue this it is important that we all contribute somehow whether that is comments likes retweets and or other means
