New example of argumentative essay: «The smartphones and the dependence they have created in today’s society»
In this new example of argumentative essay on smartphones and the dependency they create, we will look at the three main parts of the essay: its introduction, its development or body and the conclusions. I will structure it in three blocks so that they are clear each one of them, enclosing the part related to the essay and commenting next what it considers relevant to highlight about it.
Remember that argumentative essays are those in which you do not need to rely on more evidence than your own convictions, although you must defend them properly. But if there are opinions of important people in their fields that are in agreement with their hypothesis to defend, then it is a good idea to use it, since it will give greater strength and prestige.
New example of argumentative essay: introduction
“The introduction of the smartphone has been very rapid in all sectors of society and has contributed to the development of a greater dependence on cell phones, which now connected to the Internet provide a greater number of services and have become essential for many people. But are these devices as useful as we think? Are they contributing to a better society or are they impoverishing our relationships? I believe that the smartphone helps create a virtual reality that totally isolates young people, increases bad education and a poor and fictitious social life and ultimately is more harmful than beneficial for our young people”
As you can see, a brief analysis of the reality observed by the author and the theory that he will defend in the body of his essay has been proposed. The objectives of the introduction are thus achieved.
New example of argumentative essay: the body of the essay
“We spend more time with our friends on social networks than with the real ones and it is possible to see several young people in a cafeteria who do not converse, they just type like crazy in their terminal. The network and its intricacies have priority before the person in front of them. Now no one apologizes or asks permission to answer a call that interrupts a conversation, now the natural thing is to leave the interlocutur with the word in the mouth even to read the last Facebook post of a friend. This harms the relationships between people and clearly boycotts communication between people.
Spaces are not respected, schools, cinemas and even the church are places where we often see acoustic signals or lights that show that the owner of the device is, with more or less dissimulation, attending a request. The benefits that the smartphone can give, such as being located, being able to communicate in case of emergency or resorting to a stray if we have gone missing are not as necessary as they may seem. Before we used public telephones and asked other people if we did not know an address. Yes, young people, there was a time when politely asking a stranger down the street how we could go to a place was usual and we did not use google maps.
Psychologists, sociologists and even associations used to treat very serious addictions support the theory that the smartphone is today a problem for thousands of young people who have physical symptoms that can even manifest as anxiety crisis if they leave their phone at home. I support myself in the links that I am attaching so that they can see how these specialists see, as I see it, that today the telephone can be detrimental to an increasingly large sector of the population”.
Very briefly, since space requires it, the author defends his arguments by relying on the analysis of the reality that he observes and in which experts from different branches carry out.
New example of argumentative essay: conclusion
«The use of the smartphone has become an abuse in a large part of the youth. It is this misuse that makes many of us today consider that the utilities that this device has are in the background before the prejudices that cause how I have shown in this essay»
Brief but emphatic, the author makes clear his main idea in the conclusion of the essay.
