How technology is changing our behavior? The case of Whatsapp in Africa
Technology has many advantages in today’s well-being. In recent years, we have seen an increase of massive small and intelligent devices known as connected devices.
Africans use these devices in their own manner. In most African countries, Whatsapp has become one of the most prevalent means of communication. Even the elders who formerly prevent their little sons to use these devices back in the days are stuck to this app the whole day. Sharing videos, photos though this app is incredibly easy, and people don’t hesitate to use this functionality to propagate ideas that are worth spreading to them.
It is worth noting that in many African countries, Whatsapp has salvage communication for analphabets. Now, even if one cannot read or writte letters, he can easily send messages using vocal functionality. Let’s see what technology has to give and how it will surprise us in the near future.
