We analyze causes and effects every day in order to understand relationships

not discuss technology in general, but a form of technology, like Facebook, online
shopping, texting, etc.) has caused, describing the chronology of the action and the
predictability of the effect (There can be various causes and various effects:
Facebook can effect how we feel about ourselves, how we communicate with others,
how we get our news, how we discuss politics) analyze the impacts that piece of
technology has made on you, your generation, friendships, romantic relationships,
