Actually this is reflection sample about the talk of Ms. Sherry Turkle. "Connected, but Alone?"

To some extent, I will give you a brief sketch of conversation we were watched on October 17, 2020. Sherry Turkle comments that today people are using technology to interact rather than to face-to - face relationships. Most of us are lonely along with depression because we're afraid of intimacy, and we don't know how to convey the true feelings that we wanted to show. We spend the night talking, watching, surfing, etc. in the virtual world. In addition, she concludes her speech with a wish that technology will lead people back to real life, families, politics, and the true world.

At the same time, technology is very popular and normal, and it affects our daily basis of life, with various scenes and strategies to make it remarkable. It can easily manipulate perspective and make them believe what they see in the background of the image. Advancement is not like what you think, apart from being optimistic, people are using it for day and night. They're telling and entertaining us like commercials and vlogs. It gives us an opportunity to be conscious of and to be up to date in our world and to interact easily with our friends and loved ones. There's one saying that serves as a reminder of "Think Before You Click".

Lastly, technology has had a complete impact on our lives. Sherry Turkle's "Connected yet lonely?" was a great chat. She thoroughly clarified and pointed out how technology has changed our means of communication. Even though technology has changed our contact with others, let us still have pleasant and meaningful conversations with others. Let us not rely on technology, either. Technology is not always going to be there for us; we need to be able to have freedom inside us.
