Today’s “Digital” Culture

Posted by Tom Locke on September 7th, 2012 filed in General, Life, Technology

It fascinates me that social interaction has been modified to the point that digital social  interaction has taken precedent over physical/face-to-face interaction.

I believe that we feed off the transferring of emotions in our face-to-face encounters.   On the digital front, these types of interactions feel empty when we don’t see our emotions reflected back in the other person, and we struggle to empathize with what the other person is feeling.

Interaction has taken on a new meaning, which was recently illustrated to me when a young 20-something remarked, “I rather “Facebook” then face my book”.
