The Innovation of Loneliness. This great little animated video demonstrates how in a world of social media and our ever expanding ‘friend’ circles we may actually be more lonely. By being in control of the image we project of ourselves to others online, we aren’t being true to ourselves, thus making us feel more alone.
We are sacrificing conversation for connection
With the ability to edit, re-think and delete what we have said or posted, we craft our own image, paragraphs of text reformed and photos depicting only what we want people to see. We gather online friends like stamps and quantity has overtaken quality, with face to face interaction being minimized year by year. Take a look at this short informative video and let us know your perspective.
What is the connection between Social Networks and Being Lonely?
Quoting the words of Sherry Turkle from her TED talk – Connected, But Alone.
