Internet kills communication
Transcript of Internet kills communication
“Look at ME. Listen to ME. Stop everything you are doing at your own table and pay attention to ME”
Central Claim (Thesis):
Let’s consider what some of the opposition claims.
Topic sentence 1:
How Internet Can Kill Communication
Blerine Sejdiu (Sec.53)
Marigona Krasniqi (Sec.51)
Valmire Cerreti (Sec.53)
Such technologies are to some extent negatively influencing human interaction, especially in regards to creating unnecessary distractions.
Topic Sentence 2:
Topic Sentence 3:
Deceptive behavior can be more readily acceptable to some avid technology users.
However, such lines of thinking are misguided because sometimes some people pretend to be open while chatting. The reality is not always an open sky, though; that’s why people are more likely to be dishonest when they are not communicating face-to-face with others.
Despite what some skeptics assert, the internet can impact how humans interact, especially in regards to face-to-face contact, as well as deceptive behavior, as can be seen in many classrooms, places of employment, and home environments.
Let’s consider the history of the internet and technology in general, including in regards to portable electronic devices, e.g. laptops, smartphones, and smart tablets.
Connected Internet (“Internet” par. 1, 5, 6, 7)
90% of personal computers have been infected by spyware. (Awad and Fitzgerald, par. 1,2,6)
Human interaction better and easier
Express themselves better
Feel comfortable while chatting
Fallacy- Missing the point
Food for thought:
The internet can enhance our life by improving the quality of life, but also it is killing communication skills and stealing some of the most precious moments of life.
People somehow are becoming like apps; when people need them, they download them and when they get bored of them, they delete them.
