During these crazy times, I can’t help but wonder, how would I even survive being on lockdown for so long if it wasn’t for technology? It is the one thing that has kept most of us sane while stuck inside during this crisis.
Apps like Instacart and Zoom have been a hit during the pandemic. Why leave the house to go grocery shopping and risk exposure to the virus when you can get your groceries delivered at your doorstep? And thanks to video conferencing services like Zoom, you can have face-to-face meetings with your boss and colleagues, or socialize with your friends and family during happy hour.
Of course, it doesn’t stop there. Tech companies, such as Google and Facebook, have done a great job in providing information on COVID-19 from trusted sources, tips on how to take care of yourself and ways to deal with staying home.
Let’s not forget all the entertaining dance moves we have learned from apps like TikTok, and all the nights we’ve spent binge watching our favorite shows on Netflix. According to Netflix’s quarterly earnings report, the streaming service gained more than 15 million subscribers between January and March.
Technology has helped businesses to carry on working and it has helped all of us to stay strong during these hard and uncertain times.
