TYS 2001 Q3 " Computers and mobile phones have made us all worse at talking to one another, not better!" What do you think?

Misunderstandings can also occur when we use computers and moblie phones to communicate. For instance, it is sometimes difficult to detect sacarsm from text messages or emails and this might lead to conflicts between people.

Because with computers and mobile phones, we do not have to face the person, so we do not have to bother about our body language or facial expressions that can transmit messages to the other person. Hence, when we do have to talk to one another face to face, we no longer know how to carry ourselves and have appropriate body language/ facial expressions.

With the influx of modern technology, the means of human communication has changed accordingly. Since the invention of devices like computers and mobile phones, human interaction is now able to transcend physical boundaries, and link people from all parts of the world. It has even changed the way people are able to speak to each other, and the medium through which they are able to do so. However, though it cannot be denied that the advent of such technology has brought along with it the rise of social ills, mobile phones and computers have aided the way people talk to each other as well.

In addition, by keeping track of lastest events in other's lives through such sites, people can be more sensitive about conversation topics to bring up.

With the rapid developments in infocommunications technology, communication via computers and mobile phones is becoming an increasingly personal experience. Communication tools available nowadays such as Skype, allows people from all over the world to communicate face-to-face via webcam, thus overcoming the barrier of distance, and at the same time, does not compromise on developing body/facial language skills. 3G technology has allowed people to communicate on the get-go, where the "action" is, thus providing a better narrative as experiences can be viewed on-hand, aiding communication. There are also technologies being developed that allow for even the sense of touch to be transmitted as users communicate online, as these users wear a special shirt that will allow either party to experience a hug (or other options that the other chooses).

NO

Social networking sites like facebook have facilitated keeping in touch with others, and helping one to see what common interests they might have with other people they know.

This makes it easier and better for people to talk to one another as they can talk about common interests, making it less awkward during conversations.
