For quite a while I've been thinking about the past, the present and the future concerning technology, social media, etc. A couple of minutes ago I found a Youtube video in my news feed on Facebook that I found amazing. The video brings up whether or not social media and digital socialisation really are social activites, or if we are getting trapped and enslaved by our own inventions. For example, about 10 years ago when I was a fourth grader in Primary School at the very most one third of the students in grade four and five had their own phone, and they were rare among younger kids than that. These phones were meant for calling their parents if something happened or the like. Four years later at least 50%, probably a lot more, of the six and seven years old kids in my school had their own smart phones. I just can't help to wonder where the world really is going, but to me it seems it will end up like in Asimov's "The Naked Sun", where people never leave their homes and the mere thought of meeting someone in person makes people sick. I'm curious as to what you, fellow forumers, think. Is there anything good at all with this development, or are humanity going at light speed towards a brick wall?
