An example of giving your idea:
I just tried writing down my opinion. Hope someone would be the next to add more points to support your points.
The topic has been a question for years. Despite the fact that it benefits us in many ways:
- Technology makes the world flat. Thanks to the Internet, Computers, mobile electronic tools, we could communicate to each other and get news more conveniently. We could travel to further places in a short period. In addition, we could have a teleconference so we do not have to be present in the meeting in the other country.
However, it also causes greater inconvenience than convenience.
- Internet, Cable and Radio do help us get information (news, ads, etc.) and enjoy entertainments (movies, music, etc.) more comfortably and easily; but they also transmit more violence and pornography which affect our new generation. Then we have to find solutions to protect our children from them.
So, whether you agree or disagree with the development of technology, please feel free to leave a comment below. :)
