COLLEGE PROFESSOR STATES THAT TECH GADGETS MAY BE A DETRIMENT TO AMERICAN SOCIETY

Cleveland, TN: Dr. Luis Camillo Almeida, a professor of Communication Arts in Tennessee is claiming that the smartphone causes people more damage than good. He is bold to state that some tech gadgets maybe a detriment to American society.

According to researchers, 88% of teens have been mean to others in social media, 64% of people who use twitter for news encountered something they later discovered to be false. The University of Pittsburgh researchers have found that social media increases depression. “How can we celebrate technology so much in America today?” asks Almeida.

“We are reaching a point of no return. In my research alone, I’ve found that almost 7 out of 10 participants ignore their own limits these days; More than 3/4 of the participants in my study reported that their thoughts are often somewhere else. Almost 50% of the participants stated that they use the computer to a limit of mental exhaustion!” adds Almeida.

A newspaper columnist known for his provocative stance he calls “TechnoModeration” – the philosophy proposing that people must moderate their use of technology to live a better life.

As Christian Lous Lange once said, “Technology is a useful servant but a dangerous master.”

Almeida is inviting Americans to be cautious about technology and encourages people to use technology, including the smartphone, but in moderation.
