Love this article! Well written and researched! The fourth myth particularly resonated with me regarding Social Media’s role in limiting “real” interaction/engagement, i.e. keeping us from personally meeting up.
Nothing could be further from the “truth” as I see it. What immediately comes to mind is the superficiality of so many face-to-face conversations where people typically are afraid of revealing much about themselves and their real feelings.
Online, a good number people [who aren’t scammers, and other evil-doers] seem to be motivated and enabled to engage honestly and thoughtfully. Then when they do make the opportunity to meetup face-to-face, there is so much to talk about in more depth — human being to human being.
