These days

These days, face-to-face conversations have become minimal because of the overuse of technology———- specifically, social media. The advent of Social Media has seen more people connected than ever before; this is done through the social media chats across the internet. Ironically, social psychologists contend that in this virtual connection people are very lonelier and even more isolated. The psychologists further explain people have opted to hide behind social media instead of interacting physically in real time. Some of the situations in which social media creates isolation includes: One social media networking is a distraction to real life; social media has effectively managed to shift the ability of people to focus on the immediate things happening on their surroundings as most often you will find people too immersed on their phones to know what is going around them (Boyd, 2015)
