The line chart illustrates the variation in the number of newly-built houses in four categories in a specific area of the UK from 2010 to 2018 and future projections to 2020.
The trend in three kinds of houses shows great similarity during the period. Starting from 2600, we can see that detached houses were the most popular ones. After rising to a peak at around 2800 in 2012, the figure has declined consistently to the 2010 figure and the drop seems more remarkable until 2020 when it is predicted to reach 2400. Terraced houses and semi-detached houses also follow an overall downward trend, with the former dropping from 1800 to 1600 and the latter from1500 to 1200, despite some fluctuation over the time frame.
Dramatic differences can be spotted in flats. In 2010, the least number of flats were built (around 1200), but the number successively exceeded that of semi-detached houses, terraced houses and now overtakes that of detached houses and will reach almost 2900 in the end, dominating the housing market.
Overall, the graph shows how flats have increased dramatically in the number while the popularity of the other three types has dropped over the period.

In such a digital age, which features the wide available of internet to individuals, users are able to deal with a bunch of daily tasks online, ranging from doing shopping, arranging and completing working projects as well as interacting with strangers and friends. In my view, this tendency is largely beneficial for people’s work and life.
To commence with, it is conceivable that telecommuting saves time for employees. Without spending time on the way to and from work, office workers have more disposable time and the flexible schedule, in which case, they could work the hours they wished and have a better rest. In addition, online communication enlarges the circle of friends. More specifically, social networking websites is deemed as an effective way to make connections with people with similar interests and goals. What’s more, long distance communication relieves couples or families from lovesickness and homesickness. Even though living thousands of miles away from hometown, they can stare at the faces of their beloved and listen to their voice.
In terms of online shopping, it has been thought as the indispensable part of modern life due to its convenience. Instead of going to malls, the only thing consumers have to do is viewing the high-definition pictures and click the button of payment, the commodities they choose would be delivered at home in several days or appointed time. This is especially useful for people working on a tight schedule or in times of inclement weather. Undeniably, customers can purchase goods all over the world; in consequence, there is no need for them to travel to foreign countries for some fancy dresses or handbags.
On the flip side, a lack of face-to-face contact does generate harmful effects, among which the most obvious is that the loss of interpersonal skills in reality. In fact, body language such as eye contact and gestures, and social psychology laid emphasis on in real way are invalid and ignored in virtual world, making people incompetent and unskilled in face-to-face situations.
In conclusion, although the dimension of communication would be diminished, I strongly contend that the increasing popularity of communication via internet benefits people from all walks of life.
