This advocacy focuses on how Filipinos now and then adopt the technological process. It’s effects on the social attributes of each one of us using it especially in teenagers who are using technology nowadays. We chose this topic to inform more users on how the technology now has been used in a wrong way. Encourage people to somehow, learn more and be respectful on using it and to let them know that technology is not for wrongdoings and somehow lessen this cases. Because for us, technology nowadays may lead to humans being controlled not only physically but also mentally by this change for us, we want to lessen this case.
What is technology for us:
We all know that technology was created by science to help people make their jobs be done easily. But not all of us are using it right, yes, technology is a helpful device which can help us to communicate with others easily, for entertainment, in school or office works. It lessens the handworks of an individual, and it is a positive and helpful outcome in our society and economy these days. But what we noticed is that technology has its negative sides that all of us keep on doing because for us it is good for the eyes and to those who saw it and used it. Technology is built by science to let people be productive and learn their uses, it is not built to ruin our self-ideas or in short is to lead us in a wrong path because technology was done not for us to be ruined nut for us to learn and guide us in what we want to do and what we intend to do. This is not a world for technology only, we are not robots, it is a world for humans, technology is a guide for us, not a human assistant.
Technology and Personalities of People nowadays:
Did technology teach us to be lazy, why? Because many of us are just searching and browsing ideas or somehow others ideas in our assignments, projects, and even in our daily activities. There are already machines that can do what people can do especially to us students, some of us are not using our own ideas and perspectives instead we use technology to gather them. Technology leads to addiction, why? Because many of us are overusing it. Using it over time, using it as an entertainment all night, using it to communicate to strangers, stalk them, chitchatting with them and also let ourselves not to sleep and instead staying up all night that causes others not to attend to school or works because they lack sleep or sometimes it made them not to feel well.
Technology leads to people spreading and invading other people’s privacy, because some of us are now addicted to a site and so lead them to invade and spread videos, pictures, and even become their posers for them to gather friends and attention to others. Like the current events that were happening now, most of them are like us teenagers using their ex-bf/gf, friends, private videos to get revenge that is not helpful for us individuals
Technology leads to Bullying, yes, it does because many of us now are commenting and also spreading wrong and not true information about a certain person, commenting not necessary words on that person’s profile, and one of this example also is like we have said before, the spreading of private videos and pictures of an individual that leads to them been bullied and be ashamed of themselves.
Lastly, Technology now is somehow a crime, why? because now, from what we have noticed, Filipinos are committed to a crime where he/she is spreading scandal videos, that lead to a person to be depressed and commit suicide. Technology now, let people commit a crime by talking and meeting that particular person but then, leading that person to be killed and raped. For us, these are just a few technological changes in our social life there are still many of them if we are just interested in knowing them, maybe it can be totally lessened.
Ways for us to avoid those technological changes:
First, we have to take limits in using gadgets or sites that are not necessary and for fun only we can use it if only needed cause we can control it if we just aim to do it. Second, we have to apply some privacy for ourselves, and not showing lots of our private doings or activities just to make anyone think what you wanted them to think but for us, before you post something you have to think for yourself.
Third, to avoid laziness, you need to use your own ideas! yes, you can search on the internet or some sorts of a website but it is more creative and helpful for yourself if you just gathered ideas and information but you, yourself use your own brain for doing your hand works. Fourth, to avoid bad people, stop and please think before you communicate with that stranger don’t ever think of meeting that person because you should know first his/her character or personality because you never know. Lastly, Respect! yes, if we just learn to respect ourselves and the others? and also, the technology that was using? there will be a lesser crime, lessen cyberbullying, lessen laziness and most of all we can communicate with our families and friends without using those gadgets. Talking to someone is much better for us till now.
