I was scrolling through my Facebook timeline and a friend of mine shared this video.
I really liked the message it was sending; technology is wonderful, but it shouldn’t be everything. People are spending more time in front of screen with headphones in seclusion than ever before. I understand what the man is talking about. For example when he brings up that having a group chat is not the same as hanging out with friends, we are secluding ourselves from life. While we believe we are submerged in this mass social media with constant flow of attention and socialization, we technically aren’t. We’re in our beds in pajamas with headphones on a Saturday night when we should be at a bar having a beer and meeting new people.
I agree with him, do you?
