Television has been invented in the 20th century. In the beginning only a few people have had a chance to keep a TV set in their homes, but now almost every family has a TV set. The TV set itself has been developed, from black and white small screen to 23 inches colored screens.I completely disagree that television has destroyed communication among friends and family. In this essay I will give some arguments supporting this idea.
One of the most obvious arguments is that nowadays people are very busy and after hard work day they need calm relaxation and fun. They watch their favorite films and serials with their family and friends, they laugh and have a lot of fun together, which unites them.
Another reason is that towns have become more and more crowded and people dont know each other. It is true that in those inadequate conditions it is very hard to make friends. As a rule television is full of actors, actresses and musicians which everyone knows. In this way television provides people mutual acquaintances, whose appearance and performance could be discussed among people. Consequently that makes communication among friends easy and enjoyable.
Last but not least, sometimes the members of a family are away from each other and they havent got the chance to share special events from their life. For example, one of the parents is on a business trip abroad for a long time and during that time his/her child has a birthday party. His/her family could record this special occasion on a cassette, so that the parent could watch it when he/she comes back home.
In conclusion, television is one of the greatest inventions of the 20th century. By its good influence on people, television helps friends and family to become more united.
