A discussion

Technology has destroyed communication in numerous ways. Before the introduction of phones, ipads, Television, laptops, xbox, computer games, ipods etc, society was active and mentally healthy. Being sociable does not represent the amount of hours you spend behind a screen; rather it defines how well you are when it comes to communicating TO and WITH people. Before the emergence of technology, a stress free life was laid out with tight knit communities and suicide rates were not as high! People fall out now even more as they did before, simply because of a misplaced explanation mark, forgetting an emoticon or the extra 'X' at the end of a message.
