In our world of technological advancement and attempted maximum efficiency, we cut out some of the key parts of communication. Body language and tone of voice totally lack in emails and texts. I’M YELLING IN YOUR MIND RIGHT NOW BECAUSE THIS IS IN CAPS, even if in my mind while typing that, I wasn’t yelling. We send a text and if we don’t get a response immediately we start feeling withdrawal-like symptoms. Instant messaging is great for quick planning and succinct conversations, but when we attempt to use it to completely replace genuine social interaction, it can leave us feeling like something is missing.
