The way Technology impacts Human Relationships has become a burning issue and totally undeniable!
In this age, we are always connected; But via Technology not from heart & that’s the main problem. We can’t deny the fact that Technology impacts Human Relationships from many aspects.
In this era of Web & Social Media, we all are seamlessly connected with everyone 24*7 via different channels. But have you ever felt like,
Are we really connected? Or it has just become a phenomenon?
Yes that’s the fact because advancement of Technologies over the years has diminished the physical distance. By removing all physical boundaries and bringing people closer virtually.
It’s a great benefit, right? Yes, absolutely but with this the bonding, affection, relational quotient of people with their close ones has also become deteriorating.
You must be thinking, how can you say so being a columnist of Technology-Lifestyle? Exactly that’s why I am raising this point because I write about Technology-Lifestyle.
When I am pointing out the good sides, so it’s also my responsibility to bring out the other side of it into limelight.
I have seen constantly that how Human Relationships are getting impacted by Technology. People are always connected but neglecting the close ones.
Here in this piece of article I will talk about 5 Signals which will help you to understand how Technology impacts on Human Relationships.
How our relationship is literally getting affected?
5 signals how Technology is affecting Relationships
# Signal 1
Social relations are getting hampered!
Yes, that’s the fact. In any social gathering I have seen that there are many people who are busy with their smartphone & talking/ chatting with someone else who is far away.
But due to that he/ she is totally neglecting/ ignoring the people who are nearby & wanna talk. So from my opinion, what kind of behaviour is this.
In previous days people were much more social literally, they knew the value of these social relations and they had a respect for the people who are their close.
But now a days we are getting so much addicted with various technologies that we are totally forgetting the people around us and chasing a virtual world.
Even in Bus & Train also people don’t talk with each other with affection, they are all busy in their own virtual world.
So these create a big impact on our social relations.
Family Bonding is getting weaker!
Children s are not communicating with their parents properly when they are in home. Every parents want to spend some time with their children.
Want to talk and spend some quality time with their children.
But the children s & teenagers of this generation have become so much addicted about technologies & gadgets that in home also they stay busy with their virtual world.
They don’t even have the time to spend with their parents in many cases. Now tell me one thing, if a child grows up like this, will it not affect in Family Bonding?
It’s not only the case for children but the parents are also are getting busy in this highly technology driven era.
In day they are busy in office/ work space and at night when they should spend some time with family, they are either busy with their laptop or smartphone.
So in this way if both generation of a family creates and starts living in their own virtual world then gradually it will create a drastic effect on Family Bonding.

People are getting unsocial!
Unsocial in the sense they are forgetting the common values & ethos which make us real human being.
Like giving attention to people who are closer to us, taking care of them, listening what they are saying etc. All these are highly important for being social literally.
But due to the immense popularity of technology, people have become less bothered about these common values as I mentioned in my first point.
So people are getting a bit Unsocial.
# Signal 4
It’s creating bad effect on child’s development!
You can take the reference of my second point then by considering the depicted situation there, you can easily be able to understood that how a child’s growth can be affected due to this.
If a child from his/ her childhood and teenage-time get dependent on a virtual world then it can create a big impact on their overall development.
# Signal 5
True affection of love is also fading away!
How? Because now a days you are always connected with that special one of your life.
But you know what, from one angle it seems good but so much closeness sometimes makes the relationship a bit burden.
Because believe it or not, but a little distance & space is required for all relationship to grow. Just like how a plant requires natural air & daylight to grow in a healthy way.
So nothing is good, in an excessive manner. So for this kind of closeness of this era the natural affection starts to fade out very soon.
These are 5 Signals regarding how Technology impacts Human Relationships! So, please share your opinion on this.
