Have you ever considered the types of traces we leave throughout our lives especially the ones left on the internet. We have become prone to a world that its sole purpose is to reinforce our ability to create new meanings to the words Like, Share, Comment, Repost, etc. These words have completely taken on a life of their own and have manifested a new meaning.
As I write I am thinking about the new mediums we are constantly creating and how technology has dogmatized the way we communicate. Have these new technologies fostered a narcissistic way of thinking or has it evolved us in a new way completely unprecedented?
My worry is that, we are living in a time of mass mechanization and technolization (yes I made it up) that I fear we are creating this polarizing separation that affects the ethical nature of men and women.
I wonder if years from now, the posts we write, the photos we share via Twitter, Instagram, Facebook will it be studied as a revolutionizing way of communicating or a demoralizing way of communication and literacy. I pray that I will be around to see how it will play out.
What are you thoughts?
