No, I wouldn’t say that our lives are COMPLETELY controlled by technology, but the new generation is very addicted to it. The new generation is brainwashed by the internet, and spend half of their lives on their phones. I didn’t grow up this way, and honestly, I’m ashamed to be part of this new generation. Technology has come very far, and has made this world more productive, but it is used in some inappropriate ways. Social media was originally made for businesses and students to communicate, and it has shaved down to children being brainwashed. I love technology, as it gives many people great resources and easier communication, but this generation is becoming lazier and lazier. I mostly think technology is good, but there are some negatives that are problematic.
