I Refuse to Let Technology Control Me.

Hey whats up peeps!

Did you know the average person spends 4 years of looking down his cellphone? Turns out ironic aint it? It’s frustrating how these touch screens can make us loose touch.But its no wonder when a world filled with iMacs, iPads and iPhones…so many ‘I’s so many selfies not many us’s in the we. See technology has made us more selfish and separate than ever because while it claims to connect us,connection hasn’t gotten any better.

And let me express first, to Mr Zuckerberg, not to be rude but I think you should reclassify Facebook to what it is to an ANTIsocial network. We may have big friend lists but so many of us are friendless all along because most friendships are more broken on screens of our very computers and phones when sitted at home in front of our computers measuring self-worth by the numbers of followers and likes then we end up ignoring those we actually love us.It all seems that we’d rather write an angry post and talk to someone who’d actually hug us.Am i bugging?You tell me.

I actually asked a friend the other day if we could meet up face to face and he said, “allright,what time do you wanna Skype?” I responded with an “OMG” SRs with a bunch of SMHs,what about me?…do i not have the patience to have a conversation  without abbreviations or this is the generation of media overstimulation.Because chats have been reduced to snaps to news of 140 characters videos  reduced to 6second high-speed then you wonder why ADD is on the rise faster than 4GLTE but,have you loaded this…study shows that the articulate span of an adult today is 1 second lower than that of a gold fish.So if you wanted a few people who are aquatic animals that are about to close or click off their mouse to this article then congratulations!m

Let me finish by saying that you actually do have a choice.Yes…Yes You do.But this one my friend,we can not autocorrect.We must do it ourselves.Take control or be in control.Make a decision because as for me, no longer do I want to spoil a precious moment by being caught up with a phone.I dont want to take a picture of nudes anymore.I dont want that new app that new software or that new update. And if I wanna post an old photo,who says I have to wait untill Thursday and tag it #TBT?

I’m so tired of performing in the pageantry of vanity and conforming to the deceptive  of digital insanity.Call me crazy but I imagine a world where we smile when we have low batteries.Because that typically means that we will be one bar closer to HUMANITY.
