    The arrival of the Internet in our lives and the technological revolution that has brought about this change, which began to take place especially around the year 2000 when many sites began to offer instant communication services, especially chat, has radically changed the way we relate to and maintain relationships with other people.

    Since then, and with the emergence of other social networks such as Twitter in 2006, followed by Facebook around 2008, a lot has changed radically in terms of human relationships and new technologies. Dating sites and specialised websites have not stopped growing, as is the case of the most suitable for dating professional Brisbane escorts on Skokka, an adult classifieds portal available in 27 countries, which are becoming more and more popular and used.

    We can understand networks by groups, communities and organisations linked to each other through social relationships. This was the result of the convergence of media, the political economy of media and the development of technologies, aiming at interaction between channels for communication between people.

    If there is one element that has especially influenced this great change, it is the use of smartphones continuously and everywhere. Being always connected online with a device in the palm of your hand has been the greatest technological revolution of all time. In this way, from everyday things like reading the mail, news or checking the weather, to other more important actions, such as the way we meet people or socialise, have changed forever.

    The appearance on the market of multiple dating sites with sensual Hyderabad escorts, mobile applications and options to find a partner on the Internet, have turned this aspect into something more and more common and everyday.

    There is no doubt at this point that trends and technology go hand in hand in this sector, which, although it is becoming more innovative every day, has as a principle something that is in the DNA of human beings, which is that they are social beings and need to relate to each other permanently and constantly.

    In any case, we must not forget that the use of new technologies has both advantages and disadvantages.

    Advantages of new technologies in interpersonal relationships

    - Ease and immediacy of contact with other people. We need less time to get in touch with anyone, which, in the work environment, translates into savings in time and money.

    - Encouragement, strengthening and consolidation of long-distance relationships. New technologies make it possible to maintain and/or strengthen long-distance relationships, especially when we have a family member whom we cannot/should not visit due to their vulnerability, in situations such as the current one.

    - Possibility of easily widening our circle of relationships. It is easier for us to build new relationships thanks to new technologies, for example, by talking to high class independent Perth escort.

    - Innovation in teaching methodology. Undoubtedly, new technologies have allowed us to achieve an important transformation in teaching (teaching classes, doing homework and even reading books online, thanks to digital programmes and platforms).

    - New ways of working at a distance. In exceptional times, such as the one we have been living through for a year now, new technologies allow us to continue to carry out our work, in those sectors of activity in which physical presence is not essential, through remote working.

    Disadvantages of the new technologies in human relations

    - Exposure of our privacy and loss of confidentiality. Sometimes we come to think that we need new technologies in order to survive. The need to keep our profile and/or status constantly updated on social networks can become a problem, generating anxiety and great dependence on the networks, even showing aspects of our privacy (personal data and our environment) that are important to safeguard, with the risks that this entails.

    - Falseness of the image shown on social networks. On many occasions we show a false image of ourselves on social networks, probably due to the person's dissatisfaction with his or her own reality.

    - Abandonment of the real world to take refuge in a virtual world. In certain cases, new technologies can make us put aside our real life to focus on a virtual world (often unreal).

    - Internet addiction. A problem that occurs when people become completely dependent on the Internet, which can cause anxiety and distress if they are not connected. This addiction can cause nervousness, irritability and even a lack of interest in socialising with other people. It is therefore very important that, in the case of minors, parents supervise their presence on networks and the use of electronic devices.

    - Less dedication to other more important things. Dependence on mobile phones or tablets (WhatsApp and social networks) and video games, in many cases, can lead to a loss of attention to other tasks that the person has to carry out (work or study).
