Not technology, but the way that technology is being marketed. Television has had a dramatic impact on the amount of time that people spend together outside of work, and the demise of many clubs can probably be laid at the feet of the network executives who put keeping their audiance glued to set every night above everything else. The Internet and computers are actually bringing more social interaction to people's lives, with chat rooms, message boards, and online gaming. It can be hard to realize that most people never traveled more than 5 miles from their place of birth until just the last 100 years or so. 5 miles is the distance that the average person can walk and still return in one day. And many people lived in small villages, or an isolated farms, so they did not have very active social lives. Probably America in the 1950's and 60's was the epitomy of social interaction, and that was made possible by the technology of the automobile.

Exclusion. People have become so dependant on science and technology such that they have become independent. I suppose it is a good thing but human beings are social things. Being too independent can have bad impacts and can leed to stress, depression and other life threatening diseases.

Technology has changed people by making them way less social in person. People will spend hours on their phone or computer over having a real conversation in person.

In some respects technology improves social relations, especially internationally. However in everyday life people may communicate just through phones instead of speaking. This could make people more unsociable.

Social technology replaces the need to face people thus making people less sociable. It can make people very nasty and violent. It can also cause misunderstandings that can lead to problems with people who more that likely have done nothing wrong. On the good side social technology can help notify people of great importance for emergency's to acquire aid for the hurt such as the police, fire department, exc... Social technology can be of great use, but also create a great problem throughout our daily lives.

Yes this is true, as people grow up, they seems to be selective with friends. At this point in life people seems to stick with true friends only. And as a result of this they become less social an reserved.
