It's So Easy To Communicate, How Come You're Not Hearin' Me?

We live in a world that is filled with technology. This can be a blessing and a curse. There are so many great things that have come from technology. It can be very detriment though; especially to our relationships. How many times have you been talking to a friend and then noticed that they weren't paying attention because they had their attention toward their phone? I'm pretty sure everyone has been through this situation. I don't know about you but I get so aggravated when this happens. I feel like the youth of today need to pay more attention to the people that are physically there with them. We get so caught up in how many Facebook friends we have that we forget who our real friends are. There was a very popular video about this very topic a few years that really opened up my eyes.It is entitled Look Up
Look Up
This shows the power of face to face relationships. So many things we say can be misinterpreted because of technology. An interesting fact that we learned in class is that when we text we lose 86% of communication. When you text, you lose the tone of your comment and the non-verbal gestures you send. These are both responsible for 86% of our communication.Technology can ruin our relationships, even in our family. When you are spending time with your families, put down your phone and put your computer away. Turn off the TV and play a game or just talk with one another. You can build such a strong relationship when you try you put effort into your face to face relationships.
