It is believed that using social media has a negative effect on interpersonal communication. Do you agree?
Some people say that social media have destroyed the real communication, the one that happens face to face . Perhaps, it is an extrem position, but it is true that the way of communication have changed a lot during the last decad .
While our parents used to meet with their friends always in the same place and at the same time, because they hadn’t got phones or internet to check at what time they have met, young people now feel stressful when they are waiting for their friends without phones. We need contact every time with the people who are meeting with: where they are, at what time they will arrive.
Other thing that also changes lot is the false communication we have. It is normal to see a group of young people with their phones, speaking with each other, taking pictures of what they are doing or searching information about other people.
Maybe, to say that social media is destroying the real communication is cross the line, but it is obvious that things have changed a lot because of them and in my view point it has changed in a bad way.
