I believe for the young it has a negative impact. You just have to see the young people on the street. They are attached to their smart phones. They are either talking, texting, checking emails, searching the web, downloading apps, using apps, taking photos/selfies or playing games. They are connected with the world, but seem to rely too much on technology rather than personal conversations or interactions.

Very positive, imagine how often we avoid hard labour?! Too much of a good thing can turn bad. Like too much media and entertainment devices is addictive and numbs the mind. We all need balance.

Great for communication and education . Bad for health and can be addictive

Technology has a balance of both positive and negative impact on the world because it would help us work efficiently in our everyday work. However, the negative impact on it is that it will cause health issues if we have to sit in-front of our computers / technology for too long. Also, if we are using it everyday and this will lead to serious harm to our body especially occupational health hazard.

Positive, it helps us connect with people around the world and makes communication easier. You can also find out news of what is happening all around the world

Positive because we have access to more knowledge but also negative because people base their life around it.

The positive side of technology is you have the world at you fingertips with a push of a button and is always updating whether if its devices, for example laptops, smartphones; tablets;game consoles and plasma Televisions that are connected to the internet also programes, software, Applications etc. The negative side is hackers, cybercrime; can happen if personal information is not secured it can be highly addictive can affect your vision if you do not have 10-15minute breaks just to name a few.

I believe it has more positive impact than negative. Every coin has two sides. We always must look into the good one. In olden days we need to run for bank, bus fare , food processor, gas, electricity bill, telephone bill . Technology made all this much easier. specially if we live in the other country, we would be completely lost all contacts from our family. Because of technology we stay connected all the time now. Does not feel like we are away from them. we could see everything in the world from one place through internet. so i will always think we are in positve side than negative.

In the right hand and right motivation, they will have positive impact on the world. It is also a wonderful tool for dissemination of information. The negative effect is when it has been used for black propaganda.
