We Spoke Online

I used to get frustrated when people said we had spoke just because they sent me an email or we had a chat on Gchat or Facebook.  But now these digital chats are legitimately replacing phone conversations and face to face meetings. 

Internet communication is impersonal but saves you time and gas money.  This new form of seamless and rapid communication is keeping everyone in touch.  

Digital communication is becoming personal communication.  We talk so much online that it makes seeing each other awkward.  We prefer to see others as their digital selves rather than their character in real life.  People can be boring face to face, saving the best of their thoughts online.  

We successfully talk through status updates and instant digital exchanges on multiple screens including Smartphone, tablet, and PC.  We don’t necessarily need to see each other to catch up.  Even when we do we meet we typically have our phones with us to show people what we’re up to. 

Digital communication has replaced face to face conversations both in our personal and professional lives.  We’re still not sure if we’re better off for it.
