The Internet is changing the way we think, concentrate, and process information. Studies are showing the Internet is lowering our concentration because the Internet offers constant distractions. Its reducing our attention span, and its ruining our interpersonal communication skills. Basically this technology is dehumanizing us.
Millennials and Generation Z would rather text, instant message, or use social media to communicate. Many people under 20 dont even have a personal email address.
To some of us this is mind boggling, including this Millennial. Emails contain too much information, they take too long to read, and they dont cut to the chase. This is what my generation and Generation Z believes.
Its a race for who can give us the most information the fastest, but not too much text in this information because we dont have the attention span for that. Communication is becoming short, shorter, and shortest.
