I think that the rapid dissemination of information is a by-product of the technological advances of our society. I think that when we are able to get information so quickly and easily by way of our computers and smart phones, it is just something that will happen because of it.
Thanks to the Internet, FaceBook, Twitter, Instagram etc information true and false, can be disseminated very quickly. Technological advances allow for faster connection speeds and the transmission of photos and data at a faster rate than before. Information can and does spread very quickly as a result of new technology.
Yes, the rapid dissemination of information is a by-product of the technological advances of our society, because these advances have made it that much easier for us to communicate. We do not have to wait until the news is on or until tomorrow's newspaper shows up. We can just look at our phone.
I believe rapid dissemination of information is a by-product of the technological advances of our society. The media always tried to get information out as fast as they could. When papers were printed everyone would flock to see the new headline. We aren't restricted by that format any more, every one is in the competition and everyone wants to be the first.
