Face to face conversation beats any other type of communication as the message is better conveyed and understood. Spoken words cannot be unsaid and in face to face situations, the parties involved are better able to infer meaning from the tone of the speaker. The tone in which message is said affects its meaning and help decipher it.

Hey guys!!! This is what is reality. We are proud members of internet family. For us the only way to communicate is through internet. Yup, that means meeting the person via texting not in person(this is the truth can’t help).
Texting is surely the best way for interacting with family, friends and strangers. Yup strangers. The people you don’t even know but text them without any reason. Talking of cyber bullying or stalking or whatever you say. It is a large and heavy topic to put my opinion on. Many things have been said and unsaid.
I can only talk of what a victim goes through when obscene messages appear on screen. Women undergoes this stuff at least once in their life. With people appealing for sexting, sending nudes, flirting and talking shit. This just goes and goes on. I was petrified at first, didn’t know what to do. And then as usual blocked him. That’s what everyone out there does. When this was repeated, i became habitual.
Different accounts, different people text you, not realizing what goes through the other person’s mind.People it does matter what you speak and how you treat us. We may or may not speak up but these things make us depressed and definitely sad.
Feels like this is the world, this is the truth of internet, this is it’s power and weakness. And however so many opinions people give, this remains and would still live.
There is one more thing about the internet conversations,’the emojis’.
They give you an insight about tone of the person writing(DO THEY?). I don’t know, I just don’t understand this. For once I did not put the laughing emojis out there and they considered me to be rude to them. If you know me in person you certainly know when am I serious and when not. And this is what is lacking in everyone. A single text means so much to a person that they can hold grudges for them that too for lifelong. People judge so quickly when they read your texts. They don’t give you a chance to explain.
Another thing, I have realised is that friendship which we make through whatsapp groups and facebook tags is next to unbreakable(hahah! Not joking.. This has actually happened to me). They are the only real friendships we get in our lives. We can make best friends forever just by interacting on whatsapp groups and fb tags. Before this I thought talking to person via calls or messages was enough to form a link but true picture is till the time you don’t tag that person on fb or insta,you are not considered FRIENDS(welcome to the social media world). Real life interaction only matters when you have done all the ‘bakchodi’ on social media. Groups formed on social media comprise of the people CLOSE to each other. And if any other person tries to form a bond, they are either trolled or considered outsider always.
This is truth guys, not joking. Only speaking out of experience.
The point here lies we are becoming slaves of the virtual world.
Come back people, come back. It is where you belong. it is where you will form bonds and relations. It is where you will be loved and will get to love people. It is where your emotions live with every laugh you take not in the screens.
Be happy. Be loved.
