How technology changes communication – pros and cons
I remember when I was issued an email company in the mid 90’s. It went a little like this: someone would call me on the phone to tell me that they sent me an email, and then I would wait in my office room staring at the hole to my computer screen until it appeared. Sometimes information will arrive with faxes; Most of the time is followed up with phone calls to explain in more detail the purpose of communication. Can you imagine doing that today? Due to technological advancements, communication in the business world today is much easier – but how much does it cost? Does it affect our ability to connect with other people in a more intimate way? Technology changing communication makes business more efficient, but its influence can affect us socially.
Pro clear technology:
Able to connect real-time (email, message, social media) allows two people to start communication instantly and comfortably. Get feedback, ask questions, provide information immediately save a lot of time, labor and money, plus in the long term more efficiently.
Business technology changes have increased the speed at which business is done. This is very beneficial for companies that do business with other people in a distant location. Instead of waiting days for documents that will be received by a colleague, businesses can now exchange files in seconds via the internet.
Meetings can be held through video conference technology that saves business with travel and time fees.
However, some technological changes that affect communication may not be for the better. While this negative effect is relatively small, in some cases they have a profound effect on business skills and interpersonal.
Technology is very disturbing. With cellular devices and computers, we are constantly bombarded with notifications on social media, online chat with friends, or text with neighbors. This disorder can sometimes be a “timer” reduces productivity and negates the increase in communication output provided by technological advancements.
The nature that shows technology works inhibits personal communication because it is short and instant and is not intended at all to express feelings and emotions compared to face-to-face communication. Technology also distorts the clarity of the message delivered due to fast and instant. There are times when the tone and meaning behind digital messages is misinterpreted.
Technology such as text messages and e-mail allows us to communicate in short, the edited sentences are carefully intimacy and delete direct information provided with tone of voice and body language. As a result, people who are connected with others, especially through technology it might be difficult to engage in normal conversations, because they may have problems understanding non-verbal cues due to lack of practice with face-to-face interactions that cannot be paused, edited or filtered.
