Technology influences society in a number of ways, including how people communicate with others and access information. It can also dictate what people believe are their priorities.
Since the first computer was introduced in 1971, there have been several levels of progress that have helped to redefine technology. The computer first transformed how data was processed and later, when the Internet was invented, it changed how people accessed information.
Through devices like tablets and smartphones, people have changed how they communicate with others. Gone are the days of long phone conversations and in are quick posts on social media and abbreviated text messages.
