Social Media outlets like Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ have been instrumental in people reaching out and touching the world. However, these amazing connectors, these awesome uniters (which may or may not be a word) can also act like buffers, causing people to keep in touch more via social media than through face-to-face “real conversations.”
Is there a problem here?
Are we losing touch with humanity by constantly staying in touch digitally?
In this episode of Success Freaks, our “More Than Just Facebook Friends” Comedic Motivational show hosts, Mordant & McFall, bring up the subject of the life we all lead “On Beyond Facebook.”
This is not to say that Social Media as a whole is bad. Obviously, a lot of good comes from Social Media. Friendships are formed, ideas are birthed and come to fruition, the voice of the people in politics—not just ours, but all over the world—is finally being heard. However, we need to take things further. On Beyond the buffer of Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Google+, etc. Take these friendships we’ve formed, this social interaction we are enjoying, to another level. Let’s not, in using our superpower of reaching out and touching the world, forget our basic need for physical human contact.
