Nowadays, the issue of technology dependency has settled on the highest possible level, which negatively affects society’s life. Firstly, people became more and less social at the same time. More, because they now can find a friend from another side of the Earth, they may be following interesting bloggers, and simply they can talk with three people at the same time using text messages. On the other hand, less social because all their communication (or the vast of it) is based on virtual interaction, while in the real world, these people can not negotiate any of the subjects orally. Secondly, the time of chatting in the social media and other technological advanced stuff became more popular than walking on the street, especially this year, which made ourselves self-closed. Last but not least, we became less patient. While there were some problems with creating a fire, these days people become mad when they cannot warm their food for at least 5 minutes. As a result, society is less patient, more hurry, and this negatively affects our attitude to life and its purpose.
