Social or antisocial

Do you think sites such as :

CS
Facebook
Tinder
Snapchat etc
Are making people social or antisocial?

Does it hurt more to be unfriended online or ignored on the street comfort

Palmfrond
I think its a social activity where there are opportunities to say things we can’t to real life friends

That would depend if you are the puncher or the punched cool

Strange you have used

Virtue:

behaviour showing high moral standards

And social :

I'm not new. Joined CS well before you did.

*ah - delusional. Typical*

I'm not a troll (okay, that accusation made on another blog, but I have nothing further to say on that blog)

*ah - classic denial pattern.*

What's your problem?

*ah - instant aggressive reflex*

Well, diagnose this one - Social media is turning some people insane. And I may be one of them, but I'm pretty sure I just spotted another.

Mr. Kenobi, Didn't take you long, the lure of this place is strong, the darkside is your friend, speaking of which, I enjoy unfriending people on FB, snapchat is for children, tinder, tried it no one within 500km, Social media allows you to be anyone, no one doubts you have a manaconda size d*ick or that you are genderfluid.
OwwBee1
How can you diagnose my state of mind unless you are living in my reality '-)
And no one is inside me head except the voices .....

The same old map never miss a chance to entice another woman into your harem , do your loins never grow weary and your seed supply grow low.tongue
Mapmaker
Ob, Its called being polite, There are always vacancies in the harem, some leave, some retire, some get committed to asylums, the seed of my loins is always fruitful in the belly of my women tongue rolling on the floor laughing

My opinion, swings and roundabouts... The nature of the way people interact has changed. you might have made more friends meeting at the milk bar on a friday night in the 50's, but to chat with somebody from Europe etc. would have been out of the question.
No doubt you'll label my as a troll for pointing it out, the same person who would be an arsehole at the milk bar would also be one on the internet.
OwwBee1
Not at all pat you have said it perfectly.
And you wear your mask so eloquently.
Times change but arseholes only pucker.
The pitch may change but the smell is always offencive

Someone walks into my house wearing a mask and acting like they have been on one too many bad acid trips I'm not going to offer them the hand of friendship ... to be a victim you have to let yourself be victimized

I spend a solid 8 hours interacting with people. Virtual is a nice break while still socializing
OwwBee1
Palm just read your profile "not looking for crazy "

Then you have come to the wrong place

I would say more social by default and more antisocial by default.

Let me explain my thought process (as though I actually have a thought process)

More social by default because you can most certainly has contact with so many more people with the stroke of a key or swipe of the thumb. Although it isn't face to face it is still a means of communication that can elicit a emotional response for many.

More antisocial by default for the same reason...some have a nasty habit of being extremely brave and rude with their comments while sitting safely at home when you know very well that they would never make the comments face to face.

Feeling Creative?
