Question: The development of modern technology in communication has benefited some people; however, others have had no benefits at all. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

My answer:

These days, with the development of information technology, some people believe that it has changed our lives completely for the better in terms of communication, while others argue that they have had no benefits at all. As far as I am concerned, although I agree that most people can gain significant benefits, I would argue that some are still excluded.

On the one hand, communication technology certainly has benefited some people in the sense that it helps them keep in contact with their loved ones. According to a recent statistic of Facebook, approximately 85% of students studying abroad said that they can easily keep in touch with their families and friends on a video call features of Facebook. Especially, during the current stressful pandemic period, many places have social distance, making people forced to stay at home. However, thanks to information technology, we can easily communicate with our friends and colleagues. In addition, managers can organize virtual conferences for business companies instead of face-to-face meetings to save a lot of time and money.

On the other hand, it is undeniable that the development in communication still fails to benefit some people. Online communication is available when we are 'plugged'. We need to have access to the Internet and electricity. Thus, it is impossible for people living in mountainous and remote areas to communicate online. Different from the widespread use of the Internet in many big cities or town, almost people in ethnic minorities areas still do not have access to it. for instance, in some provinces in Vietnam, sending handwritten letters is still the dominant means of communication because there is no better option for the locals.

To recap the main points, I believe that the improvements in communication can provide benefits for us. However, remote citizens are still left out on account of the non-availability of the Internet.
