Our world has become very impersonal with regards to human contact. Take for example submission of resumes, even if you attend a job fair and hand in your resume, the recruiter always refer you to their website for submission of the resumes and updates on jobs. Similar is the case with dating, people have started to break up with their dates with text messages and sometimes people only come to know that they have been dumped by the way the facebook status is updated. Although it is true that the internet has really make the world smaller and make the people come in contact with other people and friends whom they have not seen for a while, but it is also a lonely site area where you can sit for hours without knowing the time passing by.
Now even the act of making friendship is done online first and then you meet someone. I guess it is the technology that is taking over peoples lives and habits and it will continue to do so since it is convenient and the easy way to go without leaving the comforts of your home.
