Sherry Turkle: Connected, but alone?

Recent Articles




As we expect more from technology, do we expect less from each other? Sherry Turkle studies how our devices and online personas are redefining human connection and communication — and asks us to think deeply about the new kinds of connection we want to have.

Sherry comments that today people use technology to connect more often than the face-to-face connection. People are lonely while they are afraid of intimacy. They spend overweight time on the virtual world to the connection rather than focus on the real world. However, she ends her conversation with a wish that technology could lead people back to the real lives, communities, and the actual planet.

Nowadays, people would have forgotten the lives without technology for communication. They cannot image the life without cellphone and computers, which provide them more opportunities to ''communicate'' with others. However, we need to ask ourselves a question that ''Does technology really provide  us the real connection?'' With technology, we don't need to see friends face-to-face in the same place. We don't need to talk with them — just text. We focus more on the messages from our Facebook, Twitter, E-mail, etc rather than the word from our friends and families next to us. We really need to reconsider the effect the technology bring about and how to use it to create a better world. We cannot deny the positive effect the technology has for us and we are still enjoying this. What we should do is not to let it develop in the wrong direction.
