Are we Social?

 

Does an emoticon smiley carry the same emotion?

Does reading a message in a social network equals to a human conversation?

We prefer working from home (WFH) to coming to work.

We prefer Whatsapp/Facebook to calling someone and wishing him Happy birthday (and I am not even talking about surprising them by ending up at their door at 12 here. Soon this might be a taboo).

We are increasingly getting comfortable being in silos. (from joint family to nuclear family to personal bedroom to personal space).

It’s a trend that is not just prevalent but growing at a rapid pace. I am no expert to say if this is good or bad, but I do feel it’s disturbing.

Side Note: No great good has come from minions living in silos. Share a smile, shed a tear, wish on a shooting star or just give a hug to each other.

Networks should enable a relationship. They cannot be the base of it.
