Humans communicate in verbal and non-verbal ways, including the use of body language and visual cues as well as tonal connotation. However, with the rise of the internet, much of this diversified communication has been lost in favour of texting. We can be bolder and more assertive from behind the depersonalised guise of our screens. We can avoid eye contact, tonal changes, and direct confrontation. The internet provides us with a way to remove ourselves from our actions and words. Naturally, as a result we lose clarity with one another, we lose understanding, we open ourselves up to miscommunication, misinterpretation, and unfair assumptions. So while we’re more comfortable approaching disagreements indirectly, is it really worth the miscommunication we face as a result?
