Can someone comment on my coherence in this paragraph?

by leo liang
(sydney)

below is one paragraph about negative effect by IT, which i write for practising my coherence

Technology has led to significant improvements in people’s life, do u agree or not?

A particularly dire effect of developments in technology is lack of family bonding. This is because people’s behavior has been changed by modern technology. For example, in recent years the younger generation tends to enjoy their time on their online life such as checking facebook rather than interact with their families at their free time. If they expose to this situation for long time, they may only live in their own virtual world. As a result, it will not only decrease their communication skills, but also limit their social opportunities with people from outside.

Paragraph Coherence
by: IELTS buddy

Hi,

It looks good to me. Very easy to read and follow, and there is no repetition.

You have a clear topic / central idea to the paragraph, presented in the first sentence.

You give a reason for starting this, then provide a fully developed example, followed by the consequences of this.

Well done!

Nice.
by: Harry Punjabi

The coherence part is perfect in my opinion. I would, however like to point out a few parts that you can improve. (My suggestions in brackets.)

A particularly dire effect of developments in technology is lack (or weakening) of family bonding. This is because people’s behavior has been changed (altered) by modern technology. For example, (nowadays)the younger generation tends to enjoy their time on their online life such as checking (Facebook) rather than (interacting) with their families (in) their free time. If they (are exposed) to this situation for long time, they may live (only) in their own virtual world. As a result, it will not only decrease (Or Harm) their communication skills, but also limit their social opportunities with people from outside.

Hi,

I have completely re-written this paragraph in my own language. Kindly check this and let me know if it can be improved at certain level.

The first and foremost effect of technology on people’s life is an unhealthy lifestyle. As youth is engaged with their mobile phones and laptops, they do not participate in outdoor sports games which has an adverse impact on their health. For instance, according to a medical study, it has been proven that people who sit in a one posture and tied up with technical devices are having many physical and health issues. Consequently, their health level is getting declined considerably, and they live with harmful diseases. Thus, it is clear that technology has a bad impact on people’s lifestyle and it has long term consequences.
