I hate texting and even emailing, I prefer speak one on one on the phone (although phone ah prison people nowadays), or in person. What is on this video is the truth, all and everything is a matter of perception. Which makes “perception”, a really big deal! Am I correct?
These miscommunications happens often, My friend sent this email to me yesterday, and in our conversation we spoke about these nowadays modern communication and how through using them conversations can often get misconstrued.
I agree with my friend when he said that “the new way we communicate, especially with social networking does not encourage real socialization”. It (conversations) are often stoic, and emoticons are used to display human emotions, can you dig it? The human relationship is now an app! How now brown cow!..who remembers how to speak. Others may disagree, but this is the way I see it.
Social media seems to be taking over, through whatever mediums used by almost everyone, whether it be facebook, instagram, whatsapp, or whatever. These mediums it seems creates more disturbance in the lives of those who uses them while making communication easier and better, but at what cost? Instead of pushing us forward, I believe, it has set us back, how many steps back< I do not know?….but it has…my belief!
I have felt insulted already because of a mis read text, and when I called and spoke to the person, it cleared itself and I sighed in relief. I am not ‘Old Fashion”, I ain’t Old anything, but is not every pan ah knock mi waan guh dung deh guh sing! In other words, I am not easy to run with or move with the crowd, to something new, Wisdom!
Therefore I hate texting and worse emailing, but times has forced us to conform. I will not digress and go in the whole “Big brother is watching”, conversation, but watch this video, have a laugh and maybe we can all talk later
