The Digital Divide

As a Small Business IT professional, I can assure readers that our use of social media and communications technology will only continue… you can’t put the genie back in the bottle!

Businesses and individuals will both struggle with the advances in technology. The old will be criticized for being non-tech savvy, younger people will be scolded for their rudeness in their heavy digital usage. These positions are both generalizations and caricatures. And then there are all of those somewhere in between – like the Baby Boomers, etc. What to do?

What it all comes down to is that we must try to embrace technology, at least to some degree. I would argue that businesses must embrace technology, it’s just too risky to pass up on the economies and efficiencies it can provide. Most individuals need to accept technology for their jobs, shopping, leisure activities, etc.
Technology will only proceed and advance, and we would be wise to embrace the benefits it can provide, rather than resist it and lose out on its many advantages.
