Online banking has made it easier for people to access financial services from the safety of their homes, and to pay for goods and services at physical and online stores without necessarily carrying cash. In the past, people needed to meet physically thus there was a limitation in terms of how many potential mates one could reach out to at any given time.
With online dating, however, a man in Pakistan can date ten girls from ten different countries, and set up an online meeting with each of them. The rate at which readers use physical libraries has decreased tremendously.
On the negative side, however, technology is eroding the human species.
Pornography has become rampant, and this is perpetuated by the ready availability of the internet all over the world.
Human trafficking, prostitution, drug trafficking and other social evils have been facilitated by technological devices.
In the 21st century, terrorism stands out as one of the greatest threats to human life.
This is attributable to the availability of books on smartphones, e-readers, and tablets.
Online learning has made it possible for students to access education from across the world.
One of the most important changes that technology has brought to human life is communication.
Individuals can communicate across the world in real time.
Social media has made communication even simpler and more efficient.
Such sites as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, and many others enable people to instantly share information including news and pictures.
Other people were cautious at first, pointing to the increase in the spread of social evils such as pornography and crime.
