Technology Paragraph

Over the years technology has developed immensely, with the development of new technology we as humans have come to adapt. Our new adaptions have ultimately, lead to our dependency on technology. We have become so dependent on technology that “42% of teenage girls and 39-45% of teenage boys say that they get anxious when they do not have access to their phones.” According to a study done by, 60% of teens—those between the ages of 13 to 17—say that spending too much time online is a “major” problem facing their age group, with about nine in 10 teens dubbing it a problem. More than half of teens (54%) say they spend too much time on their cell phones, and 41% say they overdo it on social media. In the same study we learn that “72% of parents say their teen is sometimes or often distracted by their phone while having real-life conversations, more than half (51%) of teens say the same about their parents.” This is proof that it is not just one generation that struggles with dependency on technology. Technology has forced our world to adapt. And adapting to these circumstances we have become too dependant on technology. Dependency on technology has affected those from all generations. In today’s world, the average age that someone receives a cell phone is 10 years old. Receiving a phone at such a young age will late on cause addiction which will lead to dependency.
