Social Media Has Completely Ruined Conversation (and Friendships)



There’s no doubt that social media has taken over real-life interactions.

Social networking has not only decreased the personal, intimate connections that friends can have with each other, it also contributes to people missing out on enjoying special moments in person because — ironically enough — they were too busy trying to document their experiences for online sharing.

Worldwide, Facebook users spend 10.5 billion minutes each day surfing the site — and that doesn’t even include mobile use, according to the company’s IPO filing. Collectively, that’s nearly 20 years per day that people spend living online instead of offline.

Society should be constantly be reminded to “live in the now” — instead of worry about composing the perfect tweet or angling their phone for the right Instagram shot.
