Before modern day technology, before emails, texts, Facebook, or instant messaging, people used to go outside to pass time. Spontaneous encounters, or things long planned were the norm. Nowadays, with the assistance of technology, meeting people at places is easier due to being able to text or email someone where, when and how to get to the desired destination, and talking to them is easier as well; however, one question that is commonly asked is: Does technology make things too easy? The advancements of technology, although initially perceived as a good thing and invented to help humanity, can in fact hinder our abilities to become productive to our society by promoting social interaction, showing others that getting to know someone in reality can be even more rewarding than online.
