✅   Advantages

⬤ Saves our time

As we know that with the help of technology we can finish our work very fast. We can use the saved time in other important activities . Because of technology a lot of activities like cleaning , cooking , learning are accomplished faster.

⬤ Better Communication

Think back to the time when people had to communicate using pigeons or letters, something that took days or weeks! However today the world has come closer and one can easily connect with a person sitting in another corner of the world, all thanks to technology.

🚫 Disadvantages

⬤ Extreme dependability

 With each passing day, we are becoming more and more dependent on technology for almost every task without even realizing it. A common example of this is using a cab service. Another example is using GPS to know the directions of any desired location. A lot of people today do not bother learning or memorizing directions because they depend on Google Maps for it. In a lot of ways, that’s not a good path we’re going down!

⬤ Expensive

 Although technology is already a part of many people’s lives, there are still some people out there who cannot afford some technologies. Many technologies that are being used by the organizations are expensive. As a results, one of technology’s biggest cons is that it can only be used by those who can afford it.

⬤ Shortage of jobs

With technology, the efficiency of a task has increased tenfold and this is the reason why the technology might be able to replace humans soon. An increase in technology is going to ensure that tasks that humans could do earlier can now be achieved by machines and technology. Thus, creating a shortage of jobs.

Nowadays even organizations prefer technology that is capable of doing tasks more efficiently than humans. Thus, with the rise of technology humans can be replaced by algorithms and robots.

⬤ Malfunctions

The biggest disadvantage of technology is that all are machine driven. And a minor lapse in the functioning can create a situation that cannot be controlled. So, a minor malfunction may cause a complete failure which can cost a human life as well.
