The wide brightnesses of technological devices affect the release of melatonin in the sleeping chemical.
4. Technology Cause Lack of Social Skills:
Most people use online social media technologies which cause a lack of social skills.
Our youth spend to much time using social media like Facebook, Instagram, making online friends and communicating with them.
They did not need to go outside and meet people face to face and communicate them face to face. Which causes results in a lack of much needed social skills.
They gave to much time to social media instead of communicating people face to face. Result in they lose the ability to read the social class and body language in other people.
They didn’t know about the behavior and the different social skills. That how to meet people face to face.
5. Environmental Problems Caused by Technology:
I am not ignoring the advantages of technology. There is a lot of advantages of technology which helps us in different fields.
But there are also some bad effects of technology on our lives.
Technology can also harm our environment.
There is a lot of different kinds of factories and industries which use a lot of different technological machines for there works. Which affects our environment badly.
it causes water, sound, and air pollution.
The factories through their chemical wastes in the water and produce a different kind of dangerous gases in the air. It poisons our water and air. By which different kind of diseases arises. It badly affects our health.
Also, it increases global warming. Global warming is increasing day by day. Due to the miss-use of technology.

Technology badly effects on our hearing and eyesight.
The technological devices that we use mostly smartphones, tablets, music players, laptops, etc. Are badly affect our eyes and ears.
Nowadays people used to watch television and used mobile phones all day.
Due to the screen resolution, it badly affects our eyes.it damages our inside eyes cells due to which our eyesight weak. By which we feel complexity in seeing.
And most of the people using the headphones complete day. Which badly affects our hearing.

This is the most dangerous effect of technology on youth.
8. Technology Increase in Crimes:
Technology also increases in crimes. The people use different kind of devices for the crime.
With the help of technology, they are involving different kinds of illegal activities.
Using computer technology as a medium performing crime. It is not that much different from traditional crimes.

Nowadays most of the people used technology devices (laptops, smartphones, tablets, etc) all day. And they get addicted to that.
The addition to technology is very dangerous for people.it causes negative changes in their physical and mental behavior.
We have to use the technology in a proper balancing. We have not used technology all day.
10.Technology Results in a Lack of Interest in Studying:
I found that most of the people used technology all the time and result in a lack of interest in studying.
Nowadays most of the people used the technology(smartphones, laptops) all day. In watching movies, videos or playing games.
They waste their precious time in different activities performing through these devices instead of studying and working hard for their future.
This is the most adverse effect of technology. They get addicted to that. Result in a lack of interest in studying.
11. Technology Causes Social Isolation:
The most and adverse effect of technology is social isolation.
I found that most people spending more and more time using technology.
They ignored their real lives.
Modern technology changes the way of communication and interacting with people. They have not to come out and meet people face to face.
They interact with people through social media. Attending online meetings.
You can connect a lot of people online at a time easily. So they have not to go outside and interact with people and communicate to them face to face.
People may not to go outside and interact with people, make friends in real life and communicate with them.
Later on, due to this, they lead to depression and loneliness.
As technology usage increased day by day in our society. People become dependent on technology.
Nowadays most of the people use the technology for every work. They rely on computer technology and other types of technology for their everyday existence.
When the machine breakdown the people become almost useless. Until the problem solved. This means that they were completely dependent on technology.
This kind of dependency on technology is very harmful to people.
This place the people on different problems. Because by this people become less self-sufficient.

The most adverse effect of technology on youth is it reduces the creativity of people.
Most of the people dependent on technology gadgets and modern tools. Such as a calculator and other technological devices.
It clearly seems not only the students but also the other adults. Get affected by this. They even cannot perform a simple calculation without the help of a calculator.
This reduced their creativity. this affects the way human uses the brain and creativity.
This is the most dangerous effect of technology on youth.

Modern Technology lowers the value of human workers.it advances the world in every field.
By technology, we perform a different kind of works easily within minutes. There is a lot of different technological devices in every field for work.
Technology makes human valueless. Because the technological devices did all the works within the minutes which required ten people to do.
And other more technological devices machines and gadgets make it easier to work. Which required a lot of effort to do.
The tractors and other heavy vehicles make a possibility for the people to forming.
In the building the towers or houses or shops which required a lot of labors to do work. Due to the technological machines, it did easily with fewer labors and cut the costs.
15. Access To Inappropriate Content:
In my research, I observe different people using technology. I visit different places(schools, colleges, universities, and different companies) to observe people that people use technology. In what way they are using the technology.
I found that most of the teenage people. Special students used technology in a very wrong way. They use technology to access inappropriate content.
They access different types of illegal content like abusive websites, Pornographic websites, violent or other inappropriate content.
This badly effects on people especially students and kids. It could cause a big problem for them.
