As much as I love to scroll through facebook or search the internet, I sometimes feel as though a part of how we interact with each other is lost in all the social media.
Dont get me wrong, I truly believe that the internet has revolutionized the way we see society. Social Media on the other hand, I believe is starting to isolate to people. Sometimes at work, I will be cleaning the Kids Department and look over at the mothers sitting in a corner on their cell phones. Most of the time their children are destroying the place and they don’t even look from facebook for two seconds to check on them. Even in my own experience, social media has made it hard for simple social interactions. More than once I have gone on a date and the person spends the whole time on their phone even after all the attempts I make to spark conversation. We no longer see the need to be around people if having a group message will be enough.
Social Media has its good points, but as we see social media evolve I think we will start to notice how sad human interaction devolves.
Random side note: I love this video! It shows how social media has taken over our lives in a negative way.
