LOH CONTEST#104 -The change in the world has it done more harm than good ?
Hello everyone, I hope you are all doing great. If so, glory to God. It's another new day to write and share my thoughts on what I know😊.
Reading ladies of hive contest topic for this week and reading the last question which is “20 years ago, what did you remember as a woman-vs-what is happening in the world today. One memory and what the change has been either positive or negative”.
The topic is amazing and it's an avenue for everyone to share their experience in life and use it to judge how life or things are now. Though 20 years ago I can say I am still a baby as of then. But the stories my grandmother shared with me and my siblings when we visit her narrate how things works 20 years ago.
Twenty years ago I learnt that less than half of the world's population lived in urban areas but now 55% of people live in urban areas and the internet has changed the way we do things.
It's hard to imagine a world without the internet today because the world is now digital and a lot of people are learning digital skills but it wasn't the case 20 years ago.
Today, the internet has transformed our lives, from the way we communicate to how we consume news. In short, social media has taken over because 20 years ago it was hard to see people using social media or making use of phones but presently now things have changed and 99% of people in the world make use of social media.
Another thing that change over the years is technology and it has made life easier, faster, better and more fun. Technology improves people's lives in many aspects. It's easier to go to work and performed household chores because there are various gadgets and equipment that help people do some work and live their life conveniently. For instance, presently most people use a grinding machine to make pounded yam which is a typical Nigerian swallow food that is supposed to be pounded on mortal making use of a pestle.
After talking about the positive change the world has done what about the negative? Presently now there are people that social media and technology affect their lives because they didn't use it the way they are supposed to and a lot of people are addicted to social media that they don't have time to do what they are supposed to do at a particular time because of the effects of social media on them.
So, should we say now say the changes in the world over the past 20 years have done more harm than good? Everyone's opinion is needed, so you all can comment your opinion. Well, to me it has done more good than harm.

Yea, social media may seem to have done more harm than good, but to me, i think it's purpose was to make life easier for people, it doing harm depends on the users, how they used social media in their daily lives, if we use the technologies well in a good way, then it's definitely going to do more good than harm to us.
Thanks for the mention, going to write on this too.
Thanks for your contribution to my post I do appreciate it.
Left to me, social media has done more good than harm for me, marketing my business, learning and hive blockchain in particular.
It all depends on how we tends to use the social media and all modernized stuffs because all this all suppose to be of great advantage to us and our lives in general.
The use of modernized household equipments has made some ladies very lazy while it has also created a spare time for some to work on their growth. So it all depends on how we use them.
And thanks for the invite, am working on submitting my contest already.
Yes, social media had been an avenue to market our business and let us make money online😊. Thanks for your contribution to my post, I appreciate it.
You are welcome.
Enjoy the rest of your day
The world nowadays is really advanced.. In house parents can even work online.. Unlike before that they only depend on the financial provider of the family..
The joy of seeing women working and not depending on men is the best😊. Thanks for your contribution to my post, I appreciate it.
Great observation Mercy of what had changed in the last 20 years. Technology has advanced a lot more and yes, we're enjoying one the most - internet! Which obviously benefit us enormously.
Yes, internet is the new goldmine and a lot of people are benefiting from it😊. Thanks for your contribution on my post, I appreciate it.
True that, we are amongst them :)
You're welcome and thank you too.
Technology did a lot of good.
But some people misused this opportunity.
Some are so addicted to social media, that they don't have a normal life.
And this eats them up, they know it and can never accept.
In all things striking a balance is the ultimate.
Thank you very much dear for the invite.
Wishing you luck in the contest.
How I wish some people take time for themselves and make use of technology the way it will benefit them but just a few people are doing this. Thank you for your contribution to my post dear.
You are welcome.
Good and bad in everything, all depends on how one uses tools at ones disposal.
Picking up a cellphone and phoning a friend in preference to sharing ones photography on a fancy breakfast you didn't make over social media to me is a waste of time. People who create helpful tips on how to make specialized foods, using social media to deepen their reach into the market is different.
Technology is a tool, family and friends are for hugs and fun times, will never change seeing someone in real life compared to face to face chatting on a screen.
Wow😳thanks for your contribution and the fact you said that it is good and bad in everything is right because it all depends on how we use it.
