Domestication theory suggests that technology especially internet has became essential element of everyone’s life and work. Internet has been adopted and integrated by society in such a manner that now it is impossible to remove internet from society. User of technology has played vital role in such development peer-to-peer computing and communication has paid off in terms of technology development (Harwood, 2011). Technological development has resulted in development of computing and many other types of software. These softwares serve as business operation management to businesses, and at household level, it has served as source of entertainment source. Although technology does not have physical appearance, but its presence can be felt by the world.
Along with technological development, there are some social evils also exist which are by-product of technology. Domestication theory also account for these threats like online fraud, hacking, tampering, cyber crimes and many other threats. Communication and information technologies have also emerged with the overall development and have contributed in nation’s development. These are another important aspect of domestication theory.
At last, it can be said that, domestication theory is a qualitative approach in which figures do not get relevance but feelings does. Domestication theory is based on detailed collection of information and interview with user of technology artefacts (Richardson, 2005). Information collection process became critique for this theory as it is more of qualitative nature theory.
It can be concluded that technology has became deciding factor in terms of success or failure. Technological development is most critical concern for every nation and individual in order to achieve success. Many theories have been evolved on the integration and achievement of technology artefacts. Sociology of Technology & Work is another school of thought that brings importance of technology artefacts in our daily life. Among many theories, social construction of technology and domestication theory are two theories that have provided information for user. After analysis of these theories it can be concluded that both the theories has important role to play in everyone’s life. Social construction of technology defines relationship and interdependence of society on technology. There are some critiques of social construction of technology theory which needs to be overcome. It suggested that human or society has involved technology. On the other hand, domestication theory has defined control aspect of technology from both sides. It suggests that technology has become very important which it can drive society.
