    Digital information has become so vital in everyone’s life in recent years that it now exists everywhere. While there are a few substantial disadvantages, I believe the advantages are superior to disadvantages.

    People may become addicted to a sedentary lifestyle as a result of information technology. Because everything is available through a digital screen. Another disadvantage is that persons who use social media are more likely to suffer from mental health problems like depression and anxiety. It’s because social influencers publish everything about their lives on social media, and people compare it to their own lives and strive to emulate them. It may or may not be achievable, and as a result, people may get troubled by what they lack, which can lead to mental illness.

    On the other hand, the advantages include that individuals will be able to gather a lot of knowledge if they utilise it precisely, and people from all over the world will be able to access any type of data that is valuable. Information digitization has benefited in job creation and globalisation. People in rural locations, for example, can acquire good education thanks to the availability of digital material on the internet. Another example is that several government apps are available for anyone who detects danger nearby and can alert the nearest police station with a single click. As a result, it is able to assist and save numerous lives all across the world.

    Finally, the advantages are more important than the disadvantages. Despite the fact that people may be affected by excessive use of social media and are fully reliant on digital information, they will get a great deal of knowledge if they use it correctly, which will aid in evolution and lifesaving. As a result, it is evident that the benifits outweigh the downsides, and that any problem can be manages with proper use of knowledge.

It is very convenient to work from home through mobiles or laptops. For example, when Covid started and there was lockdown everywhere, it was very difficult to go to offices and schools, but due to such an advancement in the IT sector, we could all attend all classes and jobs sitting at our homes. Information technology has also created lot of job opportunities all over the world.

The dependence on IT has made us couch potatoes. Furthermore, due to sitting all times on screen, many of us do not prefer to exercise or do physical activity which is making us overweight and obese leading to so many chronic conditions and illness.

    In conclusion, I would like to state that the advantages clearly overshadow the disadvantages as infotech has made our day to day life comforting.

I believe that there should be more investments in the information technology department so that it flourishes more as it is a very important sector in respect to our future.

    Information Technology has a huge impact on our daily lives and it has become almost impossible to lead a life without getting involved with technological trends. This essay will discuss the merits, demerits and justify the usage of the same.

    Undoubtedly, technological advancements have made human life better due to the convenience of getting any job done easily. In fact, nowadays shopping of groceries, clothing and electronic devices are under few clicks away at the comfort of home. Moreover, bill payments are much simpler than ever before and carrying money in hand is no longer a requirement in the digital world. Due to high connectivity capabilities, we are able to work from home, collaborate with team and ensures high productivity in long run. Indeed, remote working is a good choice for keeping work-life balance in our lives and many employers have found this mode of working cost-effective. Also, there are multiple platforms available to keep us entertained through movies, songs, sports and games.

    Nevertheless, there are multiple disadvantages due to the technological intervention in each and every activity we do. Leading a sedentary lifestyle, addiction of video games and social medias and lack of interpersonal communication are few demerits of this boom. This also affects us mentally, making us defocused and inattentive. Having said that, it is an individual’s choice to take advantage of the given opportunity or to misuse it. Of course, these demerits can be avoided by strict and careful usage of the technology.

    In conclusion, it is obvious that, even though there are multiple cons, it is inarguable that pros are bringing a lot more opportunities and convenience to human life. Engineers are working hard to make human life better, hence it is wise to take advantage of the situation rather than rejecting it.
