  1. I love to communicate face to face but in future our generation is losing
    that, it is really important not to lose that ability to talk and
    communicate. My classmate talked about really interesting story how she
    traveled with her friend by bus. It was 2 hour ride and she told that she
    taked with her about half an hour then it was it. Communication ended and
    they started to listening to music and touching their phones. That is not
    yet it. Well about one hour later her friend sent a link on viber about
    some news. Her friend totally forgot that they were sitting together and
    basically could just knocked on the shoulder and show her smartphone. But
    no. This is the part, it gets weird, well they totally forgot they were
    together, smartphones took power.
    That is really important not to lose verbal interactions. Great video Dave.

  3. Ive been talking lots about this with my mates over the last week or so.
    Ive noticed lots of people “un plugging” from social media. In fact its
    becoming a common catch phrase. The bottom line for me is anything in
    excess is a bad thing. I think social media has its place but should be
    kept in check. However i do agree it can become a problem in relationships,
    work etc etc when used to excess. I do also think that it gets the same
    sort of bad press as say TV would have had say 50 years ago when TV was
    new. Or indeed that playing video games turns you into a serial killer etc.
    I think Social media does a lot of good as well it allows people to
    communicate in different countries and cultures it opens you up to the
    world in a way you can never get say going down the pub…. Facebook for
    example allowed me to get in touch with a large number of people i went to
    school with who i had lost contact with. And Twitter allows you to have a
    closer connection to people you would never normally be able to communicate
    with. In summary like i say it is fine in moderation as long as you can
    keep a balance between the real world and an online one. 

  4. I’m 16 but I refuse to use any big social networks like Facebook or
    Twitter. The closest I get to that are certain communities or forums that I
    like. My generation, and so far each since, has had a noticeable loss of
    social and overall language skills. It is sad to hear people who don’t
    speak English as a primary language have a better vocabulary than most of
    today’s teens.

  5. If someone met a person he hated on Twitter face to face, then he’d
    probably punch him in the face.

  6. I don’t do Social Interaction!! I’m much more comfortable typing than I am
    talking. Just the other week, someone wanted to do a Skype interview with
    me. .. To this day, I’ve not listened to the resulting YouTube vid.. Can’t
    stand my own voice!! Eeeuw!!!
    I’m more fluent when typing, and tend not to fumble my words. I get time to
    think out a reply, and can get my thoughts across in a much better manner.
    But then, I’ve always been a “shy” kid.
    I’m comfortable with my lifestyle, but then I grew up with it. Now I’m
    seeing friends and relatives suddenly start to disappear into their phones
    and tablets, and.. Mr hypocrit that I am, I do worry that they’re losing
    something.
    These are people that USED to interact well with each other, but now cower
    away.
    As much as I’ve always been hidden away, everyone else hasn’t, and as I
    watch the whole world around me, slowly close up, I worry that they’re not
    going to enjoy the techy nature of typing as much as they think they are.

    ..

    Or maybe I’m just being a whinger about the whole thing..
    Times change, and habits do to. It’d just the way things are, nowadays.
    At some point, there would’ve been this same argument about face-to-face vs
    “that new Telephone technology”.. Or going out to watch the football vs
    “that new Television technology”..
    We’re all getting grumpy in our old age 😉

    My advice to friends and family : Enjoy your tech, just stop by and say
    hello once in a while!!

  7. Not only are we losing the ability to interact socially but patience as
    well. I have seen people texting each other while sitting together in a
    café, not talking to each other at all. The perfect example I can give
    about impatience is people that got into an accident while driving and
    texting.
    The internet is a great forum but too many people get so hung up with it
    they just cannot wait to get on it, while grocery shopping I have seen
    people watching YouTube, movies, FaceBook etc. I think that it is pretty
    sad when people cannot dis connect from the internet and enjoy their
    surroundings and/or other people. Awesome video Dave.

    Wow Dave, you and I have *so* much in common; I am *extremely* passionate
    about this very subject – people seem more willing to say “see you on
    facebook” than to bother themselves enough to drive round and actually have
    a cup of coffee with you – I have friends who are like this, and it REALLY
    REALLY REALLLLY annoys me, and makes me quite irritated at times (I never
    get angry with the people, although I do tell them I am sad not to see
    them).

  9. This argument sits close to my heart with my grand children. I like to make
    sure they play and socialise. In general unless the modern younger parents
    take control a little more then I feel our generation is one of the last
    that will have the skills for a proper social life.

  10. I totally agree but I don’t know whether not young people can interact with
    one another. Have you ever been in a coffee shop or a bus or train and
    listened to young people speak (14 – 25) to one another? Well if you have
    then you will have noticed one word that use throughout their conversation
    and it is the word “like”…..what does that word mean? The conversation
    goes something along these lines “man do you know what I mean like…it is
    like…like it sorta is …like I got this today…like” what on earth does
    that rubbish mean? At home I have tried to ban the use of that word “like”
    from my two daughters conversations….and they just can’t do it. So yes
    social networking is eroding social integration skills and we unfortunately
    have lost the art of conversation

  11. Very very good point made in that video Dave I’m 100℅behind you on this
    matter people don’t talk enough

  12. You are so right!
    Face to face interaction should always come first, not just on our mobiles,
    Dave.
    I totally agree with you.
