The 21st century has witnessed the biggest surge in the use of technology. From startups to government agencies, from sending an email to exploring Mars’ surface, technology is being used everywhere. It won’t be wrong to say that there is hardly anything that cannot be done with the help of technology. While some technologies leave a small impact, others have a huge impact on the world. In this post, you’ll see the top three such technologies that have had the biggest impact on the world in the 21st century. Check them out:

Social Media

Who had thought you’d be posting photos of your dinner online for friends and family sitting in another part of the world? Or calling someone based in a different time zone without incurring any voice call charges? All this looked impossible about fifteen years ago, but as soon as Facebook made an entry in the dot com world, everything changed.

Even though there were other social media platforms like Orkut or Yahoo Messenger before Facebook’s entry, but none had an equal impact on people globally. Today, Facebook along with Instagram, Twitter, WhatsApp, and LinkedIn have almost eliminated geographical boundaries virtually. People can talk to each other without any tension, exchange photos, files, and even call each other using the internet.

Electric Cars

All of us know how quickly petrol prices are going up these days. Given the volatility in the international oil market, these prices are going to go beyond anyone’s control soon. Besides, petrol and diesel aren’t environment-friendly. They pollute the environment and cause tens of thousands of deaths every year. An alternative had to be found that wasn’t as expensive or dangerous. Electric cars have become that alternative for now.

They look amazing, can be charged in minutes and don’t have any negative impact on the environment. Tesla was the first company that started the mass production of electric cars. Now, other major brands have also come forward and started manufacturing electric cars for a safer future and less polluting environment.


Drones might seem like toys to many, but if you go in-depth, you can see how critical they can be for a country. From getting used for entertainment purposes, photography and videography to being used for delivering ecommerce packages or monitoring national borders, they can help in countless ways. The size and shape of drones can be changed as per the requirements. Never had anyone in the past thought that a device as small as a drone could be this useful to individuals, businesses, and governments.

This is just the beginning of the 21st century and in the coming years, you are going to witness many more such technological advancements that will take the world forward. Until then, keep learning more about the technology and see how you can use it to make your life easier and business growth faster.
