Ceulemans Pauline W The Impact of Technology on Social Communication. This study discusses the impacts technology has had on social behavior The change in. communication mediums is addressed Although face to face communication has decreased. technology has provided opportunities for aiding in communication The video game and the. Internet community are investigated for their positive and negative traits but also for the. information the new Internet culture can provide for us Internet trolls can give us information. on dealing with bullies and social media websites make it clear that today s youth may need to. be educated on the appropriate use of communication technology.

Chapter I Introduction, Technology is constantly evolving and changing how we do things There have recently.
become many more means of communication and many more adolescents have access to them. School aged children can communicate with both people they know and strangers through. communication sources that are not face to face This may have affected the way adolescents. behave particularly those who have had these new interaction methods the entirety of their lives. To them face to face communication might not be the norm The concern is that this may have. had a detrimental effect on their interpersonal communication abilities. Simply not having as much in person communication might have allowed individuals to. be less able to pick up on some social cues Because people who communicate through non face. to face mediums do not regularly see people talking they may have difficulty recognizing facial. indicators of moods and emotions Body language is also absent from these forms of. communication This is important because it has always been a critical aspect of interacting with. other people The full meaning of what somebody is saying might not be in just the words Just. like incorrect grammar can make a sentence confusing failing to comprehend body language and. facial changes can cause the intended message to be lost to the listener This could cause a lot of. difficulty for adolescents when they reach the workforce they would be communicating with. people who did grow up using primarily face to face communication to interact with each other. Technology may have had an effect on social behavior due to the online environment and. it might be unrelated to the lack of face to face communication Diamanduros Downs. Jenkins 2008 People seem to be less politically correct when they are online and are not. dealing directly with people Diamanduros et al 2008 Draa Sydney 2009 Sabella 2007. This is likely due to the anonymity fostered by the Internet Draa Sydney 2009 However. even when the user is not anonymous Internet users still seem to be more likely to express. themselves in the public domain of the Internet They may provide much more information about. themselves than they would in a public real life setting This could simply be because Internet. users do not feel like people can see what they are doing that it does not have the same real life. consequences Draa Sydney but it could also be that they might not know what is. appropriate to share since others share openly as well There are social side effects when making. online comments and adolescent Internet users may be unaware of the consequences of their. actions Educating students on this subject may become necessary as more people grow up with. more technology, Some people include video games as a detrimental use of technology but video games. can have positive prosocial themes Greitemeyer Osswald 2011 Jin 2011 They can be. educational Griffiths 2002 It seems that video games like other forms of technology are not. detrimental unless they are misused or the user does not understand the implications of their. actions Playing a video game so much that it interferes with life is not good Van Rooij. Meerkerk Schoenmakers Griffiths Van De Mheen 2010 but the problem lies with the. player s misuse of technology not in the game In the case of people who choose to play video. games excessively depression may be the issue instead of addiction Depressed individuals who. wanted to avoid their life responsibilities might try to distract themselves with fantasy worlds. This is not to say that people who enjoy fantasy or video games are depressed but that the. excessive use of video games is correlated with depression Pezzeca 2009 The potential. tendency for depressed people to find something to distract them from life would not be specific. to video games If a person chose to read books instead of going to work it would have the same. detrimental effect that is found when people play video games too often. Some video games have an online community and the culture of the Internet can provide. hints for dealing with bullies The online community can be friendly but it also has a darker side. one that will take advantage of users who are not well acquainted with the online environment. Studying the behavior in this environment may shed some light on offline behavioral changes. Not only can the situations bullies put themselves into be viewed but the response of others to. the bullies can be observed In some cases the Internet community deals with bullies in a very. productive way However anonymous Internet bullies cannot physically assault their victims so. the environment is inherently different, Unlike anonymous Internet bullies social media websites can contain bullies who are. identifiable in real life Adolescents seem to forget be unaware or indifferent that they are not. anonymous when they use social media websites Many comments are posted online that these. students would not say if they were talking to people in person Being able to communicate. online to people certainly has its advantages but some adolescents are not using the technology. appropriately, The social media format provides a link between the anonymity of the Internet and the. real life relationships people have This link between the two has very unclear boundaries and. adolescents sometimes make poor choices with their online statements that can get them into. trouble in real life Comments made online have caught the attention of school districts and local. police departments have gotten involved Kimberly 2012 The situation could have been as. simple as an adolescent making an extreme statement that they did not actually mean and. thinking that it did not matter because it was just on the Internet Educating students on. appropriate use of technology could alleviate this problem. It is important to be aware of how technology has affected social interaction and to study. the results of it If students are suffering socially because of it then while these adolescents are. still in school efforts can be made to improve social skill deficits for those who may need them. Knowing what is going on online is important for understanding what students are experiencing. and if we do not know then we cannot help them, Statement of the Problem. Research indicates that adolescent use of technology has increased Subrahmanyam. Greenfield 2008 and this could have a negative effect on social capabilities and behavior The. repercussions of this change are unclear This study will examine how social interactions and. behaviors have changed in response to technology, Purpose of Study.
The purpose of this study is to review literature on how technological advances have. altered social behavior in adolescents who live in the developed world Data collection was done. Research Questions, The following research questions will be addressed in this study. 1 How has technology impacted social behavior, 2 What should be done to accommodate changes in communication technology. Assumptions and Limitations, It is assumed that the current school aged population has had access to communication. technologies like cellphone texting messaging through the Internet social media websites and. video games It is also assumed that people in this age group spend less time than previous. generations communicating face to face, A limitation is that some students may be less impacted by technology than is assumed. and they may choose to communicate primarily in person Another limitation is that a lot of the. research on the impact of technology may be biased There seems to be an assumption that. technology decreases positive social interaction and that technology is positively related to. destructive life choices May 2011 Another limitation is that some articles on the effects of. technology do not seem to have a good understanding of some aspects of their subject matter. Definition of Terms, This study contains some terms with which the reader may be unfamiliar The meaning.
associated with them is included here, Cyberbullying Harassment through technological means Often this takes place on the. Internet but it can also be done with other technologies like cell phones. Massively Multiplayer Online Game MMO A video game that is played online with. thousands of people or more Players share the same game world with other members and the. members can interact within the game, Post To put something online that others can see Comments pictures videos etc can. be posted onto websites, Real Life Existence off of the Internet For example people can be friends with people. they know online but when people play games with friends they know offline they may refer to. these friends as their real life friends, Social Media Website A website that an individual goes on to socially interact with. other people They often include a space for a user to tell about themselves and the opportunity. to post to others on the website This is a public forum but users can chose to limit who can see. what they post, Texting A method of communication on a cell phone through written message Unlike a.
phone call the message recipient does not need to answer the phone when the message is. received to be able to access it, Chapter II Literature Review. Introduction, This chapter will discuss the influence technology has had on interpersonal behavior in. adolescents the social effects of video games Internet culture social media websites. Technology has changed the way people interact and it is particularly noticeable in the school. aged population This population has always had these technologies and the impact on social. behavior will be addressed, Change in Communication Methods. Before the Internet and the use of texting on cellular phones people communicated. primarily face to face Letters were mailed and friends were called through landlines but one of. the main means to communicate was by meeting in person at a physical location Now people. can be in almost constant contact with each other through the Internet cell phones and other. technological devices However this contact does not have the same physical element that face. to face communication has, The current student population has grown up with many technologies that enable them to. talk to one another without being face to face Research supports the increased use of cell. phones May 2011 In 2009 the majority 66 of adolescents aged 12 to 13 had a cell phone. Lenhart 2011 However research suggests that the percent of adolescents aged 12 to 13 with. cell phones has decreased since 2009 In 2011 survey results indicated that 57 of young teens. aged 12 to 13 had a cell phone Lenhart 2012 Perhaps the decrease in cell phone ownership. among adolescents aged 12 to 13 years is linked to an increase in social awareness of technology. Older teens were more likely to have a cell phone than younger teens May 2011 87. had a cell phone in 2011 Lenhart 2012 In total 77 of teens aged 12 to 17 owned a cell. phone in 2011 up from 75 in 2009 and 45 in 2004 Lenhart 2012 Use of technology. increases with age both the age of the adolescent and as time advances However as. communication technologies advance people are also operating communication devices that. foster non face to face communication at a younger age Subrahmanyam Greenfield 2008. Cell phone usage continues to increases as we grow older Lenhart 2011 but because. technology continually advances not many individuals who are currently adults have used this. technology since childhood Subrahmanyam Greenfield 2008 This is particularly relevant. today because we have not seen how this impacts individuals as they age from adolescence to. adulthood Because these individuals have always had these communication sources some may. lack the social skills learned through in person contact simply from having limited exposure. When engaging in a conversation with another words are not the only thing being shared.
