                                                              Let’s face it.  We are living in a digital age, and there is absolutely no turning back. One of the biggest influences on society these days is social media. It affects us both positively and negatively. Social media was originally designed for people to share interesting facets of their lives with their friends, but it has become so much more than what it intended to be. It is now a medium for information to pass around the globe. In many cases, people first learn about current events through Twitter or Facebook before hearing about them from conventional news sources.

                                                              We also rely on technology for nearly everything we do. People these days seem as if they can’t go anywhere or do anything without their smartphones, tablets, or laptops. They need to be in constant contact with others via electronic devices.

                                                              However, there is also a downside to be too connected to social media and electronic devices. We are too dependent on them, which make us oblivious to what we are doing to ourselves. Being too connected can have a negative effect on our lives and the society as a whole. Here are 10 true illustrations that show how our society is negatively impacted because of the use of technology.

                                                              1. Facebook is eating away at your time.

                                                              Facebook is eating away your time

                                                                How much time do you usually spend each day on Facebook or other social networking sites? Is it hindering your productivity? Do you find yourself wasting time to a point where you don’t even know where it goes? If the answer is yes, Facebook might have eaten away at your time.

                                                                2. We’ve become “Likeaholics.”

                                                                Advertising

                                                                Likeaholic

                                                                  When you are posting something on Facebook, are you doing it just to see how many of your friends will give it the proverbial thumbs up? This illustration shows that some people are treating “Likes” on Facebook as if it was a drug they needed to inject into their bloodstreams.

                                                                  3. Our electronics have priority over our lives.

                                                                  priorities

                                                                    Given a choice between your dying phone battery or you dying, which will you choose? In this case, the man in this illustration chose to charge his phone over to sustain his own life. As a society, we need to be more careful of our priorities.

                                                                    4. Our devices are ruining intimacy.

                                                                    lack of intimacy

                                                                      Have you and your loved one ever spent time together where each of you is on your phone instead of communicating face-to-face with each other? Has society reached the point where we can’t even be intimate with each other without being on our phones at the same time?

                                                                      Advertising

                                                                      5. Families aren’t spending quality time together.

                                                                      mother baking

                                                                        Here is a mother making holiday cookies, but what are the kids doing? They are not making cookies with their mother. Instead, every one of them has their faces buried in their own electronic devices. Television used to be what parents use to babysit their kids. Now, it’s a tablet, phone, laptop or video game that does the job.

                                                                        6.  We’d rather record someone than help them.

                                                                        drowning

                                                                          A lot is happening in this illustration. A black man is drowning and asking for help. One person has a gun pointed at him. The other person has their iPhone pointed at him and is recording the scene, but is not interested to help this man.

                                                                          7. Society is sleeping, it’s sleeping its life away.

                                                                          Advertising

                                                                          sleeping your life away

                                                                            Time is money. After we have wasted the long period of time on social media, we are losing the most valuable currency we have – our time in this world.

                                                                            8.  Despite all the technology we have, we still want what someone else has.

                                                                            wanting what someone else is having

                                                                              There’s an old saying that goes, “The grass is always greener on the other side.” This illustration shows that despite all that we have, we are still not satisfied with our lives.

                                                                              9. Sensationalism still sells.

                                                                              free expression

                                                                                With the information overload that exists today, the media still looks for sensationalism. Here’s a woman who feels she has something important to say, but the media only cares about her because she is naked. Would the news media still have microphones in front of her if she wasn’t standing there topless?

                                                                                Advertising

                                                                                10. In the end, with all of this, we are still killing the planet.

                                                                                gun to mother earth
