But I agree with the opinion that telephones and emails have made communication between people less personal?. Although there are some negative things, there also have a great number of advantages which brought the Internet and the phone to us, like that we can talk to people all over the world and that we can work or study everything we want on the computer.
To begin with, the only negative thing I can think of about email and telephone is that people do not talk much to each other personally anymore. Which can be a very bad thing. For example, if I would do a business, I would rather talk to a person by face to face instead of talking on the phone because I think if it is a very important thing, you cannot discuss it on the phone.
Secondly, the email and telephone is great. You can talk to people all over the world. For example, I have many friends from Asia, but how can I communicate with them? I can just write them a quick email, and then couple minutes later I will receive the answer from them. Or if it is too impersonal for me to write mails, I can just call them on the phone and it seems to me as if they were much closer. Whereas if nobody invented the Internet or the phone, I would maybe never have talked to my friends again
In addition, emailing is also a very good invention for working or studying. For example, the women who have kids can take their business to home, so they can earn the money but also can take care of their kids. Another example, if you are studying, you can do the homework or write essays on the computer, and then you can just mail them to your teacher.
To summaries, I think the invention of the telephone and the email has been a great step in the universal history, now you can talk or write to anybody we want without paying a lot of money. Although this invention brought us also some negative things, in the whole I think it is a great chance we have through telephone and Internet.
