Yes, now we connect instantly from everywhere in the globe. Internet made it possible. It’s great isn’t it? Yes and no. It’s great to connect with people we love when they live two thousand miles away, and there is no other way to talk to them. But it’s not so great when we use the technology to connect with people that maybe live as close as next door, with friends that if we walk half an hour we’ll meet them in person. The internet is ruining our physical connection and social life. People sit at home and text. Communication lacks the context. Conversation lack the personal touch. Where you met someone in person is so great, you make the eye contact, emotions interact, you give them a hug. It’s so special. It make us feel a million times better.
We now live with social media, facebook, twiter etc. Even in a night out with friends, people are there with mobile phones on their hands, taking photos. Ten years ago we lived them great moments and we saved them in our memories. These days are now long gone.
