The Innovation of Loneliness by Shimi Cohen
Quote from Elite Daily:
We, as human beings, think that through social networks, we’ve somehow become more social creatures.
The problem with this theory is, the more we “connect” online, the less actual human interactions we have, making us actually fairly unsocial.
A new video breaks down exactly how the social aspects of human beings have evolved and transformed, showing how we’ve regressed from a social standpoint.
This one hits home. I’m thinking perhaps I need to reduce my social networking back to the amount I consumed while I was traveling: a lot less online and a lot more in real life. And I was a lot happier.
The irony of sharing this on my social networks is not lost on me.
