Socially (media) awkward?

Posted on: June 17, 2012

Is social media making us socially awkward?

Social media alone? No, no matter what the graphic below claims. Folks who allow the tools to dictate what they do? Yes, quite possibly.

If you play the numbers game and are easily swayed by “info” graphics, you might think that Singaporeans spend two-thirds of the time Facebooking.

Social media helps you connect in ways you cannot do so face-to-face. It augments socialization when time, space, and circumstances separate people.

But it does not, cannot, and should not replace face-to-face socialization. People intuitively understand that no matter what the numbers tell you.
