Community Spotlight: Modern technology

Dear Members,

It’s the end of another month, which brings us to a new Community Spotlight feature*. Without the Internet and technology, Toluna wouldn’t be here today, and we wouldn’t be here publishing this post. This is why we have chosen peterm85‘s topic which asks whether or not technology has made the world a better place. Feel free to join the discussion here.

Here are some of the comments from our community members:

SheOnEarth – Well i think technology makes things easier and better in terms of lifestyle, health, travel and etc. It is good. It all depends on how we use it. Maybe you use it in a way that boost your health life or you use it in a way that might make your health life worse (you get lazy and dont do much). It all depends on you 🙂 technology is not a problem at all, its the way we use it is the problem sometimes.

buyayoa – technology is good, but too much technology is not good and will spoil life

We agree with most of you who think that our dependence on technology can be both good and bad. Technology has definitely made the world a better place in terms of advances in medicine and science, as well as the ability to easily communicate with loved ones around the world. However, it is how we use modern technology that is the key. On an individual level, remember that it’s important to look away from your phone or your computer once in a while, and spend time with the real people around you.
