Nowadays, many daily tasks can be accomplished without us meeting other face to face. Generally, I tend to believe it leads to many desirable resuits.
It is evident that fulfilling some tasks over modern technologies such as the Internet and other computer networks is highly efficient. In the past, if people had the need to do shopping, they had to go to the shopping mall; but today, all can be done with the click of a mouse and the goods will be delivered home, even at a lower price. Also, we used to need to go to the bank and wait for a desperately long line if we wanted to make a transaction from one bank account to another: instead, now we may comfortably make use of the self-service banking at home. Actually, almost all banks and financial organizations are well-connected to the Internet, which promotes the development of international trade and world economy dramatically.
Thus, obviously, the efficiency of life has been improved significantly due to the technological advances.
However, that is not to say that lack of face-to-face communication brings about no problems. One of the biggest concerns is safety. With the increasing virus threats and well-trained hackers, online deals are well exposed to all kinds of risks and losses, for example, the wide-spread problem of identity theft. Therefore, when making the most of the desirable changes brought about by technology, we should be aware of its potential downsides and find a way to minimize the negative impacts.
Overall, there are both favorable and unfavorable effects on individuals and society if everyday tasks are performed without the need of seeing each other. But I am quite optimistic about its future, and I think people and countries alike will benefit from it on a new level soon.
