I don't think the technology help people to communicate,but make it even worse. Almost everyone has their own phone now. When people get together all they do is play with their phone, checking Facebook. People do not talk to each other anymore. Although technology does help the science and make it more convenience for people in some ways. But it also make the distance between people further than before. People playing with their phone all the time, even in school, in class while the teacher is talking, it will has bad influence in their grade and also lower the efficiency of studying. So I think the technology does not help the communication between people.

Communication is a core element to society's foundation. Communication is used in families, amongst friends, in schools, and in government. The advancement of technology has helped to advance the ways in which we communicate with each other. One way technology has advanced communication is through the birth of electronic communication devices. Cell phones, social networking websites, email, and faxes are a few examples of electronic communication devices. These devices have helped to make communication more accessible and convenient.

Technology lets people communicate instantly no matter how far apart they are.
Telephones and the internet are huge examples of this.

Technology helps translate languages so people can understand what others are saying even if they don't speak the same language.
Language learning software, automatic translation of websites are examples.

Technology lets people who would normally have no or very little means of communication communicate.
Hearing aids are an example.

But in every case, technology is the bridge that joins people or groups together so that they can converse, share ideas, and grow.
