Scientist thinks that one negative effect of living in a world full of technology is that more聽people experience FOMO, which is the fear of missing out, than those who聽lived in a pre-technology world. This is because you can always see what聽your friends are up to, or even what celebrities are doing on any given night or day. Having access to this info at your聽fingertips makes it easy to think you're missing out and not where you聽should be at the moment.聽

Also, One of the biggest effects of living in a technological world is the unfortunate issue of having your entire day start by being affected by the world news, markets, and other people's lives on social media. A way to combat that negative, is to keep your phone on airplane mode until you've gotten up and done a morning routine. I find this very effective so that when I do turn on my internet, I am able to enjoy the awesome connectedness, without it dictating the tone of my day.

Communication experts think that Technology creating long term negative effects,as people are becoming terrible communicators and lacking social skills.

Gia is a speech pathologist, author and trainer, who has seen some of the聽dark sides of tech with her kids. She and her husband saw their kids get聽hooked on their iPad and smartphones. They were so hooked that they had聽
limited speech and communication skills. They looked downward and basically聽stopped responding to questions and participating in conversations with Gia聽and her husband. In effect, they were becoming Tech Zombies.聽

In conversations with CEOs and corporate executives, Gia found that many聽complained that younger workers also lacked communication skills. There were聽raised and hooked on their devices but lacked social skills. The executives聽worried where the future leaders of their companies would come from.聽

Gia has decided to do something about this. She wrote a book calledThe聽Magnificent Melvin & Moxieabout her struggles with the kids and technology聽and how she figured out ways to help wean them off their devices and get聽better at communication.聽

Gia has also developed a small firm she calls Learn With Moxie to help聽schools and teachers deal with the tech addiction problem. She has created聽some modules and classes to help teachers and parents deal with the problem.聽
These classes are based on the success she and her husband had got her聽kids back on the right track to become better at communicating with the聽family, friends and at school.聽

Gia has studied this problem for several years and has loads of statistics聽on how kids are spending too much time with their devices, and what parents,聽teachers and corporate executives can do about it. She is a great expert on聽this topic.聽
