What I find most interesting about the internet is the fact we’re only ever a few clicks away from numerous platforms of communication. The internet has advanced dramatically in the past decade and we can now access pretty much whoever we wish without having to leave the comfort of our own homes. Communication through the internet is becoming on par with human interaction at a drastic rate and I feel in the coming years this will become our main platform of conversation. I’m hoping that we will navigate our way through innovation without loosing a hold of one another but the reality is, in my opinion, we are loosing the emotional connection of a face to face conversation because of what the internet offers us. Facebook is defined as a ‘social network’ but is it really social when your life is displaced on a computer screen? At this present time I think application such as Skype and FaceTime help fill the time between human interaction. For example, long distance relationships can benefit greatly from this as the two individuals can interact face to face without being with one another, this allowing them to keep up to date with each others lives. However, this could never become a substitute for the real thing. The globalisation of the internet keeps us interconnect between one another and this is why I believe it is so beneficial to society.
