Communication within Relationships

The media has had a major in somewhat neagtive influence on our relationships becuase we are not doing anything face to gface anymore where we can actually see eachothe facial experssion and actually see that other person, instead now we're doing EVERYTHING through technology, althought i must admit I am a victim to this. I feel thats its extremly important to stay in immediate contact with others espically peole that are close to me, because anything can happen at any time. I'm not sure i would respond to a power outage because thats howI communicate with everyone. I would be extremly worried because I could be away at school and not know whats going on with my family and very clos friends. I absolutelyagree with cmc, technology really makes eveyone lazy for example siri on the iphones instead going through your phone to play a song, call someone, text someone you can simpy tell siri to do it. Or instead of going to see someone you could facetime them or call.

Kim & Kat's curator insight, June 6, 2015 9:12 PM

This video gives some specifics and statistics on how much we are starting to rely on technology. Doctors are beginning to use terms such as "dependency" because people are actually becoming dependent on their smart phones. People tend to become edgy and almost go through a withdrawal when they lose their phones or lose access to wifi. 

 

The views in this video differ from those in the 'Social Networks "Kill" Relationships" video, which holds the belief that social media and technology is actually good for relationships. This video however shows the same technology in a negative light.

 

In regards to relationships, we aren't spending time with each other as much anymore. We're too busy focusing on the screens in front of us, so even when we are with other people, we aren't really "with" them. 

 

I definitely see this dependence happening both in myself and in my relationships. I almost have a relationship WITH my phone - I rarely have my phone anywhere but right next to me, and I start to get a little stressed out when my battery dies or if something on it isn't working properly. 

 

With my relationships, I definitely also notice when I'm hanging out with friends or family that we tend to multitask the entire time. We don't just eat and talk to each other, but we're also browsing Facebook or Instagram or playing Candy Crush. 

 

As someone that has more or less grown up with technology, I don't really notice the change as much as someone who is older might. It's become pretty much second nature for me and for my friends to be glued to our phones, because we've had them for just about as long as we can remember. I wonder though, if that's affecting us more than we might realize? Is our connection to our phone becoming deeper than our connections to each other?

Communicating

communication within relationships!

Peggy Brown's insight:

I remember being a little girl and not having a cell phone nor any social medias. And like any other person we have all had crushes or "play boyfriends" whatever you want to call it.  I remember communicating face to face instead of over the phone or through text. Not only "boyfriends" but with friends of the same gender as well. Now here we are in 2014 and were much older in these more mature relationships and  the way of communicating is much different and has changed in such a dramatic  way to me. We can argue through text all day long and send passages instead of calling or going to see each other and talking it out face to face. Instead seeing each other face to face we facetime, skype or oovoo. Instead of talking on the phone we text. It sometimes can cause a lot of confusion because we may take things a total different way than what that other person actually meant.
