Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Television has destroyed communication among friends and family. Use specific reasons and examples to support your opinion.

I disagree with the opinion that television has destroyed communication among friends and family. Nowadays the internet is becoming stronger as entertainment tool than television. Although we use the internet alone, we can watch television with some people.

My primary reason is those TV programs give us something to talk about with friends or family members. In our ordinary life, TV programs offer extraordinary experiences. We can see pride of lions in Africa, we can visit Europe of the middle Ages, and we can get to know about faraway universe through the several TV programs. These TV programs enrich our conversation.

Another reason is that whether or not television hurts communication depends on how to watch television. If every family member watch television in own room, communication will be destroyed. However, if some members watch television together in living room, it gives us the time to communicate. Interesting program or movie which is rented from rental shop may make family members to meet in one place.

For these reasons, I believe that television does not have destroyed communication among friends and family. Television is helpful tool to give the people something to talk about and sharing time.
