The social network has the potential to bring us closer to the online community, Share happiness memories, photos of all kinds, support cross-border communication, help to establish and maintain friendship and community management. However, it is obvious that we will link us with the power of social media, but are you disappointed at times? How will it affect online safety?
I always think that the influence of the network age on the reality of human relations has been greatly underestimated. Take the example of the microblogging stars, we have every reason to believe that there is a team behind a microblogging star, that is where, the image on the microblogging is shaped. However, we always tend to judge the star through the microblogging is a kind of temperament, over time, this network image will even constitute the most important factor in the public’s personality evaluation.
Our need for the society is so natural and powerful, then we will have some kind of impact on the development of virtual society? Several studies on social media reveal that social media cannot really increase your social circle, but if more time you use social media, you will feel lonelier.
From a research by Kaspersky, it shows our personal relationships are changing as we communicate more via the social network. The latest survey highlight that a third of people admitted that they now communicate less with their parents (31%), children (33%), partners (23%), and friends (35%) because they can see and communicate with them via social media.
In addition, more use of the social network has also been attributed to lower the intimacy of satisfaction, because it can cause jealousy and suspicion. Researchers believe that this is due to the fact that social networks more exposure, more likely to be exposed to past experience my partner and communicate with others; while the ambiguity of the social network will bring more information and speculation.
I think many of us, after socializing on social media, have come out of many restrictions and are free to express their true views. Although we cannot completely avoid the thought abduction, at least we can avoid a lot of useless social activities and broaden our scope of communication. The downside is that we tend to attach the importance to social media Mandarin, while ignoring the people around.
Therefore, it is very important in today’s life to make good use of the network image. If you just like the circle of friends as a personal private account to use what you want to send what hair (such as network rumors tell the truth about their own life, to show off their fun to play) it is easy for you to have a bad impression on you because of your weak relationships. If you send something that does not belong to this circle (such as the minority sports you love, the content of your field of specialization, the animation you watch, etc.). Bad things probably bring about no positive meaning. On the contrary, Shaping is simpler than shaping the real image.
Like we watch the movie <catfish> in class, online chatting has several problems like fake music, fake photos, fake drawing, even the fake situation for her family. In the movie, A person’s image is very easy to shape on the internet, but also very easy to be convincing. That is why I said that shaping is simpler that shaping someone’s real life.
We also see more and well designed images. After the passive consumption of these images, we will compare our subconsious cannot be more worried about our lives. But more importantly, in my circle of friends, i cannot choose the right people to compare, but only passively or unintentionally passive acceptance (evident in a person’s friends circle) others actively improve self-image. Too high a standard for comparison to asses the true self, we can easily have a negative self-awareness.
This is why people slowly lose some of the basic communication skills. Many people prefer to communicate through text messages or via electronic mail. Since e-mail conversations and short messages cannot be edited in his speech, therefore does not show what I want to see, “Party”, decentralized communication such that text and sentences are carefully edited, but lose the use of dialogue to understand other’s capabilities.
This statement also agrees with the arguments of Carson Reider “HOW IS SOCIAL MEDIA AFFECTING OUR COMMUNICATION?” he argues that the rapid-fire quick communication style that captivates the young generation has shifted our conversations from face-to-face instances to through the screen conversations. With the shift from face-to-face communication, are we missing out on being in the moment or losing the ability to sense how someone is really feeling as they relay a message? Turns out, there is substantial research documenting how our technology habits have led to a decline in communication skills among our generation.
There are also many complicated relationships that make it hard for us to truly be ourselves. When we say what we want to say, we always think “what other people think and what others think about it” it is actually kidnapped. The advantage is that the emotions and thoughts conveyed by traditional social communication are more subtle and real. After the media become social, a lot of us have put forward many restrictions to express our true opinions freely. Although we cannot completely avoid those ideas, at least we have reduced a lot of useless social media and expanded the scope of communication. The disadvantage is that we tend to focus on the social network Mandarin and ignore the people around us.
In fact, there are advantages and disadvantages of both kinds of social interaction, and they also complement each other thus no absolute way to judge. So if you are a poorly connected person, and the social network has been stratified, you might as well look beyond your circles.
