Hello community!In recent years a lot of research studies have shown that technology (and particularly computer) addiction has become one of the major phenomena of the last 20 years. What do you think about this? Do you think that it is true and how affected are you by this "threat"?
Yes, the digital transformation has caused scientists to create new theories that are related to the way we interact with the world. However as citizens and ordinary human beings sometimes we cannot truly appreciate how much this change affects us due to the fact that we are immersed in the world. IMHO, people are struggling to actually experience the Panopticon effect.
I was an addicted child and that was over 10 years ago when you had to work at addiciton, it must be hard for children these days with so much tech.For me I found that the games I played were mentally stimulating and it was easier to be social online than at school as it reduced anxieties around social situations.
