There are both negative and positive effects of technology which are under debate for a long time and in this article, we will review all those discussions and how they are affecting the people’s lives.
Good side of technology
Well nobody can deny the benefits of technology. Almost every single department has got the benefits from technology. The most effective of them is communication, with the advance technology we have the fastest and quality means of communications.

Another thing that shows that technology is good for ourselves is the means of information we have now. We have better access to the information and we do not have to put much effort to find that information. We can just sit home and know about things, of course only if we have the access to the internet. Remember that time when you have to go to the post office to just get the information about posting. Well, you don’t have to do that anymore.
Technology benefits are countless which can be hardly covered in this article. We have improved health and education systems because of it. And we have better means of entertainment and traveling too.
Another side of technology
This side of technology is not very good or people don’t let it stay good as they misuse the technology. Technology has caused some disturbing situations in the society or sometimes people are causing it and blame the technology. Whatever the reason is we have the opportunity to misuse things so some people choose to take that opportunity.
