There has always been a relationship between technology and culture for decades. Technology has influenced different cultures around the world; the same way, culture has also influenced advancements in decades. As culture changes, so do technology develops, technology has always defined how human beings re-organize themselves; it is, therefore, no doubt that human beings have grown fond of technology, and it is a necessity people cannot live without. Some technological development has eroded past activities that man used to live by. As new technologies are gradually developed, culture reacts positively or negatively.
For instance, in America, technology has seen an industrial revolution; this has affected their culture both positively and negatively. The industrialization has eroded human labor; this has seen many people losing their jobs since most of the work is done by machines. The industrial revolution started manufacturing goods that were previously made in homes, thereby, those manufactured goods when sold to different sells the American culture, hence, encouraging diversity. As these goods were cheaper to produce, consumption became high; thus, there was a higher production rate. Such technological development has seen many counties adopting industrialization; thus, it has promoted urbanization, and most people now migrate from the less technical areas to more technological areas like cities and other countries.
However, as technology becomes more complex, it also became more challenging for human beings to adapt, technological advancements such as phones are well conversant with most people. As such, it is very rear to find human beings that are still unable to use mobile phones. The inability to adapt to new technologies has brought some sense of dissatisfaction, hence, creating divisions. For instance, the digital divide is one such division; it is a class-based division where low-income earners are not able to afford and use technology as compared to high-income earners. It has also created a knowledgeable gap between people, where those who are well conversant with technology are regarded as intellects.
