It is now time for a personal experience that I promised in the initial blog post. It is probably more like a generalization than anything but it is worth mentioning. You all can give me your thoughts afterwards if you feel like it.
One of the things that bugs me about texting, emails, social media, and the like is that often times people say things on there that they wouldn’t normally say out loud. It is like people grow braver behind their screens. Have you ever met someone that was completely different behind social media and texting than they were in real life? Or do their social media pages give a different impression of them than you would get if you met them in person?
Being behind a screen doesn’t mean that a person gets to change who they are; typing words is just the same as saying them.
