Technology Quells Conversation

“The prospect of a face-to-face conversation frightens many Britons because of their increasing dependence on modern technology,” reports The Times of London. A survey of 1,000 adults, conducted by British Gas, found that daily the average person spends just under four hours of his waking life “using technology originally intended to give people more time to themselves.” According to the report, “the average Briton spends 88 minutes a day on a landline telephone, a further 62 minutes on a mobile telephone, 53 minutes e-mailing and 22 minutes text messaging.” The survey concluded that communication skills, such as talking face-to-face, are damaged. Many of those surveyed admitted that they used text messaging “as a way of cutting out conversational frills or to avoid conversation altogether.”
