Technological Determinism

In short technological determinism is based off the idea that technology influences the development of us as a society. For example, the creation of Facebook sparked a new age in communication, community wise and business wise where businesses everywhere nowadays tend to rate your personality in relation to your work ethic, determining whether or not you’re suited for the job.

One could also argue as in my previous post¬†about privacy, that this is a certain issue we face with the development of the internet, and how we seek to keep certain things hidden from public eye for such reasons. However, back onto technological determinism, I wouldn’t myself a full blown technological determinist, rather, I believe that in some aspects this theory can be applied, but as a species we develop not just through technology, but it comes down to the basics of instinct as well.
