There’s a lot of talk these days about how social media isn’t really social. We’re all connected, but we’re not really connecting. And a big part of the problem is Facebook.
Facebook was designed to be a platform for connecting people. And it has been incredibly successful at that. But the way it connects people is not really conducive to true social interaction.
When you’re on Facebook, you’re not really interacting with people. You’re interacting with their profiles. You’re looking at pictures and reading updates and that’s about it. There’s no real back-and-forth conversation. No real exchange of ideas.
And because of that, Facebook isn’t really social. It’s a platform for broadcasting, not for interacting.
The problem with Facebook is that it’s not really social. It’s a platform for broadcasting, not for interacting.
And that’s not necessarily a bad thing. There’s a time and a place for broadcasting. But it’s not the be-all and end-all of social interaction.
If we want to truly connect with people, we need to step away from Facebook and start interacting with people in real life. We need to have conversations, not just exchange updates. We need to share ideas, not just pictures.
Only then will we be able to truly connect with each other.
