Modern technology has made it possible for the discovery of many functional and utility devices like the smartwatch and the smartphone. With all of these revolutions, technology has also made our lives easier, faster, better… and more fun.
When it comes to the way we communicate, modern technology has had an impressive influence.
Digital technology has also changed what people term as ‘media.’ A media company isn’t necessarily a news platform anymore. A media company is now known as a company that helps pass information across the globe. The global active web users now near 3.2 billion people.
That’s almost half of the world’s population. Around the world, two million smartphones are sold every day. The amount of information being shared on social media networks is phenomenal.
Social media isn’t the only big statement digital technology has made. Neither is social media the only way technology has had an impact in everyone’s life.
Before the advent of mobile technology, you had to search through a dictionary to understand the meaning of a word. Today, that phenomenon is still preserved, but it is used less and less; now you can look it up on a dictionary app you downloaded or just search the internet.
The future of technology is even more interesting than what is happening right now. In few years, we will be talking about driver-less cars and robots working in factories. However, let’s focus on highlighting the ways technology has changed our lives. Below are some of the ways we have been transformed by technology.
