Technology Shapes Our Lives

These photographs depict technological determinism. Technological determinism is a theory that says that technology is what drives a society’s social system and values. When looking at this trio of pictures i immediately recognized the technological aspect. During the rise of print the newfound access to the written word, the printing press, and mass production completely changed society. Today, as seen in the pictures, new technology such as Twitter, cellphones, and Facebook also changed society.
