Technology is responsible for the social change that is occurring in society. Technology has negative affects on the individuals' in society
Technology does not influence human activity BUT humans themselves are responsible for their own actions.
Technology is both socially shaped and society shaped
For example a mobile phone is used to meet needs of society like calling someone, BUT Apps like Whatsapp were created for other functions like messaging
This is when the media exaggerate the extent of an issue to raise public anxieties. This then creates more concern in society, elevating the level of moral panic.
