Last saturday I was at a party and couldn’t help but notice the amount of people who check their phones every five minutes. I was intrigued as to what could be so important, so I stole a glance over their shoulders. Most of them were checking Facebook or texting someone who wasn’t there.
The party was still good regardless, but from my perception it seems that real experience are being left behind. Nowadays, if you blocked or deleted by someone on social media it is a huge disappointment. Researchers at Chapman University, USA, have concluded that to be ‘unfollowed’ on Twitter and to be deleted on Facebook hurts as much as a relationship break up in real life.
Not having anyone ‘liking’ the quote you posted can be very frustrating. Being online on all social media is supposedly ‘essential’ for your personal and professional success.
People are avoiding real contact and they justify this with the excuse: it is easier to keep in touch with friends.
Contact (noun): the state of physical touching; tact.
Do you understand what I mean?
So, come back to the real world and give me a hug. But if you disagree with this post, at least ‘like it’ or ‘share it’, after all I need your attention! 🙂
See you soon.
