Pope Francis recently addressed a Vatican conference on the use of technology for the “Common Good”. He stated that technological advancement should be in the service of human development, and of the whole person, and for all people.

If they are time wasters, how can we improve the situation to make the lives for both ourselves and others more enriching and full?
