DISADVANTAGES OF COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY
Technology is constantly changing the way we communicate. Some of these changes have been positive in nature. However, some of the changes have negatively impacted our ability to effectively send and receive messages. With globalization forcing us to keep up with the times or get left behind, it's critical that we understand these potential communication roadblocks as we incorporate new technology into our daily lives.
Lack of Context
When you text or email, there's no vocal tone and you can't see facial expressions. As such, it is easy to misread a message that is intended to be sarcastic or not understand the severity of a situation. This can lead to major misunderstandings
Communication technology can lead to laziness. For example, instead of walking over to someone in the same room as you to strike up a conversation you would send an instant message.
Written computer mediated communication, like instant messages and micro-blogging, is a contributing factor to poor writing skills. Poor grammar, misspellings, and inappropriate use of abbreviations can become developing problems as a result of written computer-mediated communication.
Internet like alcohol and drugs, with the Internet student will be addictive. Signs of Internet addiction include lying about Internet use and becoming oblivious to events occurring in your personal life and daily life. Addiction with the internet student will destroy their education such as playing computer game and others.
