Akintomide Olatunji Adimabua


Technological innovation has fostered an increasingly interconnected society. This, as well as the explosion in popularity of mobile devices and the drastic fall in cost of connectivity, has led to people being literally tethered to various electronic devices and being “connected” 24/7, 365 days of the year. This could be a good thing or it could be a bad thing depending on one’s point of view. Researchers have not been able to arrive at any universally acceptable conclusion though it is advisable that such connection and interconnectedness should be in moderation, as everything done in excess always tends to have a detrimental impact.This paper looks at the increasing interconnectedness between technology (ICT, Internet, etc.) and society as well as the inherent advantages and disadvantages.
