Peer Feedback — New Match on Tinder
An understanding of how changes in technology impacts on the way humans communicate, and the ethical issues that surround these changes.
Using the feedback provided from Skye has given me guidance about this topic to rewrite this blog post with more aspiration, more wanting to engage the readers more and be able to gramatically improve my writing skills. My degree is something I need to work for, if you want something you need to work for it, we make mistakes but we get those feedbacks were we can fix it which from my feedback is what I did to this new and updated blog. Yes it may seem completley different to my previous blog, but to me its something that strives this question and how it realtes so much more to todays generation. Which now my goal is to continue to use feedbacks to help me improve in my learning all way through to the final step.
1,3422 friends on Facebook, 10 seconds of technology face Snapchat, 3.1m followers on Instagram…Have we seen this video though?
“The average amount of people form 2013 who “connect” to technology and spend their time on it 1 ½ hours (90 minutes)… which adds up to 32,850 minutes a year.” (U.K Mobile Insurance. 2013.)
Technology has become faster and faster with its connection and latest update, but we see the impacts on humans and the connections havent become faster. Our journal of our lives become updated on social media but we leave out the true meaning and emotion of why we wrote this journal. When we fantasise someone we tend to add them on Facebook and stalk them in seeing what they are doing in their social life, couples we see they represent themselves and their “fantasy love” online. Every moment made is shared with thousands of people, but not with the one we want to share the moment with. Fights happend in life, but couples update their stauts with “I love my boo”. ‘
“We edit and exaggerate, we crave adulation,
we pretend we don’t notice the social isolation.
We put our words into order, until our lives are glistening,
we don’t even know if anyone is listening.” (G.Turk. 2014).
The generation today we see children learning from technology, but not actually expericing the life outside, what its like being outside in the sun.. “Now the parks are so quiet, it gives me a chill
to see no children outside and the swings hanging still.
There’s no skipping or hopscotch, no church and no steeple,
we’re a generation of idiots, smart phones and dumb people.” (G.Turk. 2014).
But from gaining feedback from my previous blog on how I can also link the ethical issues more with how technology is changing. We can see relationships arguing over social media, posting confidential images or comments that offend others, which leads to conflicting someone elses privacy. Uploading insignificant data that retains to be permament online, but these kind of information could be stored and retained ‘ScienceDaily’. As children become so engaged with group coversations, bullying becomes higher and childrens self-esteems becomes lower.
We need to come together to create those memories, the precious things we have in life are the moments we make aside from technology. Technology is today, memories are forever.
