Technology and youth culture

According to survey reports there is tremendous rise in technology usage among the urban youth. Approximately 96% of the urban youth access internet at work, school and in home. In fact according to the analysis reports, MEE found that home Internet access has continued to rise among urban youth.

These days about 78% of the teenagers among the of 12 to 17-year olds have a cell phone, and 37 percent have a Smartphone, an increase from 23 percent in 2011, according to the study, Teens and Technology, 2013.

Today the world of communication has completely changed due to excessive use of technology. Till past few years we had enough time to write letter to our near & dear ones. We actually had real conversation and time to speak to our family, friends and neighbors. But it is completely missing among today’s youth due to too much use of technology which keeps them completely engrossed.

Overall technology has affected all of us and especially the youth culture to a great extend. It keeps the youth so engrossed that they don’t even have time to talk to their parents or family even around the dinner table, which is indeed disturbing. We need to handle this issue with utmost care which has emerged from the excessive and inappropriate use of technology among the younger generation. We have to make the younger generation understand the fact that technology enables our life but at the same time if handled inappropriately and excessively it can also spoil their life.
