Is technology making us less intelligent?

Technology can be a boon and a curse. It helps once achieve so much. It literally enables one to access the world’s information with just their fingertips. However, not everyone uses this technology in the best way possible, a number of people around the world only use it for social media, such as Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat. They use this medium to share their opinion while making it abundantly clear that they have no idea about what they are really talking about, despite of the fact that the information could easily be gotten by a simple Google search. Technology has definitely made us lazy, but has it made us less intelligent as well? Or is just that the use of social media is highlighting people’s inherent stupidity?
