New technology should not be the scapegoat in this issue, because there are various other reasons which lead to the disappearance of traditions. Firstly, while world is becoming more globalized, most people are chasing for identity from others, which makes them tend to be more similar rather than distinct. Secondly, certain outmoded customs indeed have already not harmonized with modern society. For example, some folk costume, which seems to be clumsy and unfashionable, cannot be dressed in public or daily life. Finally, governmental support on promoting traditions pales in comparison with other main public issues, and mass media is keen to focus on newly-born things.
