Back in the days, people are used to talk together, look at each other in the eyes and share their deep emotions with relatives.
Nowadays, most of our life is based on a machine. We learn through a computer, we meet through an application, we share our private lives on the internet without thinking that thousand of peoples will have access to our little private garden.
As a women of 24 years old, I’m worried about the future. Technology is taking a huge space in the world and more the days pass more apps and machine are created. I write this article but I’m also a huge consumer of this technology. For example, I pass my day on Instagram, Whatsapp, Snapchat, Facebook.. for looking at the other. I consume without thinking. Thousand of contents are appearing on my feeds. I click, I like, I comment, but no emotions are felt. It’s like an automatism. We are becoming machine on a machine. The question I’m asking myself is : how much the technology is getting to change us?
So many things have changed. The supermarket is getting a place where we are by our own, without any person asking us how do we feel, what are we looking for ? Because now the cashier is a machine. At school, something has also changed. We are most of the times in front of a computer.. Taping and taping without memorizing any informations. I remember the time when I had to write on a paper the lessons of the teacher. I remember coming back at home and just have to read my paper because my brain was also remembering at the same time I was writing.
