If you know me at all, you should know by now I'm very much into all sorts of communicating and socializing online. You know, like social media and stuffs.
However I'm not all happy about it all.
First of all you cannot see the initial reactions of the other person. Say I contact another person on Facebook. I can obviously see their written response or if they liked something. But I cannot see, hear and feel how they really reacted on emotional level.
The other problem is that most of the time it all feels like shouting to the void. Sometimes I find out way afterwards how someone has actually noticed my tweet or FB status or whatever it was.
It's just really annoying that at the moment I don't know if anyone saw and noted it. Unless they comment or liked it, which happens rarely.
The media itself is so unsocial. Us people make it social. But only if we want to.
