Social Networking and Personal Communication

In the video above, Fr. Jordan Kelly, O.P., speaks with young people from New York City about the proper balance between technological tools of social network...

 

This video is of a Cathlic speaker explains how to keep a balence between social networking, face to face communication, and dedicating time to God. I thought this video was unique because it was s different prospective in terms of who uses social networks and what they use them for. One example was giving about spreading the word of God and how its not AS effective in a text as it world be in person.

How good are you at communicating?

I took a quiz to see how effective I was as a communicator. I scored a 49 which means "You're a capable communicator, but you sometimes experience communication problems. Take the time to think about your approach to communication, and focus on receiving messages effectively, as much as sending them."

What are we missing?

What are we missing? | Social Media vs. Face-to-face Communication | Scoop.it

With face to face communication we are able to get the luxury of experiencing body language and facial expressions. So if Jan says, “You are the smartest person in America.” , after you’ve emailed or texted something dumb, you may not know right away that she’s being sarcastic. Or if someone says they don’t like the way you laugh, you can’t tell right away that they are joking. When we communication through emails, or tweets, or txt we can’t always tell the tone of the conversation. Often all we see is words, which leaves a lot to be miscommunicated. We can always tell what a person means just from how they say it, if we are talking in person. Face to face communication is not only easy to understand but its also one of the best ways to communicate, which we often forget. Face to face is immediate and current, whereas with social media responses are delayed, which can cause misunderstandings.

Hierarchy of Communication

Hierarchy of Communication | Social Media vs. Face-to-face Communication | Scoop.it

Communication is a major part of our daily interaction with the people around us. This photo is a great example of which forms of communication people value to be important in the age of technology. It’s almost as if “talking” face to face is taken for granted.

Who needs friends anyway?

Who needs friends anyway? | Social Media vs. Face-to-face Communication | Scoop.it

Even though we all know that REAL friends and family are important, do we know exactly why? Its definitely deeper than we think. According to Dr. Carolyn Anderson’s web article in 2010 said that a study revealed that people who have long lasting close relationships add 7 to 8 years on to their lifespan. It is important that we keep our real life relationships healthy because they decrease our risk of death by nearly 60% over a nine year period. Harvard Medical School says according to their research woman who have healthy friendships reduce their risk of developing physical impairment and time goes on. Not having friends is just as bad as smoking, so if you don’t have friends you might as well go smoke a pack a day. Yes, social friendships that develop over the internet are great but there is nothing like the physical connection you share with a live friend. With this it is safe to conclude, its more healthy to communicate in person rather than online. According to Dr. Anderson it may not be such a good idea to cheat ourselves with social media communication when we are communication with friends, because we aren’t getting the whole truth on there. Not many people tell their followers and friends about the bad that goes on in their lives, they’ll focus on the good. Which could leave us feeling like our own lives aren’t in good standing because we aren’t ALWAYS happy. That’s not true and is unhealthy to limit ourselves to social media to catch up with our friends.

Is Social Media Killing Communication? |

Is social media killing everyday communication?

This article basically uses the example of breaking dinner plans with a friend via twitter, for the fall of face to face communication.

Nicholas Rayfield's curator insight, April 15, 2015 5:44 PM

This article touches base on people avoiding real-life communication. A sad topic that is burning the world up in a wildfire of awkwardness, people would much rather text or comment to someone to break their plans off with them then tell them how it ACTUALLY is - even over a phone call. I've been on both ends of this interaction so I can see the reality and the self-(dis)pleasure of both. It's a shame that it's come this far but this is the world that we so (un)comfortably live in.

Costs of Communication on email, Facebook, and Twitter

Costs of Communication on email, Facebook, and Twitter | Social Media vs. Face-to-face Communication | Scoop.it

This article talks about the dangers of communicating through social media and how it relates to face to face communication. Since we do communicate using these sources, Dr. Alex Lickerman explains etiquette and balance when using them. He says, “Making our meaning clear electronically presents extra challenges. For example, we write things like “LOL” and “LMOA” to describe our laughter, but they’re no real substitute for hearing people laugh, which has real power to lift our spirits when we’re feeling low.”

Do we spend more time Talking or Tweeting?

Do we spend more time Talking or Tweeting? | Social Media vs. Face-to-face Communication | Scoop.it

This graph shows the hours per day spent with face to face interaction decrease as the use of electronic media increases. Since this graph stops at 2007, imagine how dramatic the stats are in 2012!!! Since we now have more forms of social medium and technologies I would imagine that the numbers measuring face to face communication have dropped drastically.

UUUHHHH...What's Intersperonal Communication??

UUUHHHH...What's Intersperonal Communication?? | Social Media vs. Face-to-face Communication | Scoop.it

Since many of our children communicate using technologies so often its more than second nature to them. They are able to text without looking, and shorten any thought to 140 characters. Although, they are experts when it comes to communication through medium, studies show that they fall short when they have to communicate professionally in person. They don’t know how to may eye contact or use correct body language. A author from Howard University’s newspaper writes“Interpersonal communication is an art and requires a great amount of skill. Being able to communicate is essential when one is looking for a job, trying to get an override into a class, trying to ask a stranger for directions, or even trying to get good service in a restaurant.” Simple things like this are just very hard for our youth to do as second nature.

Does Anyone Talk in Person Anymore?

Does Anyone Talk in Person Anymore? | Social Media vs. Face-to-face Communication | Scoop.it

All too often I find myself just wanting to send someone a text or email, simply because I’m too lazy to actually meet up with them in person. Sometimes I just don’t want to talk to people, and today we have some many outlets that make it super easy to communicate without talking. This is so sad but its true, and I know I’m not alone. To actively communicate with someone takes time, energy, and effort so its very easy to fall short on face-to-face communication. I’m guilty of falling short, for example if I do decide to visit someone at their house instead of walking up to the door and ringing the doorbell, I text them to say “I’m Outside”. I rely on technology for everything and often wonder what I would do without it, especially in terms of communication. If we didn’t rely on technology as much as we do I don’t think this would be a problem. Is it that big of an issue where social medium and technologies have taken the appreciation out of face-to-face communication? Although, communicating through technology and social medium make it fairly easy, its almost as if we rob ourselves of the actual enjoyment we get from talking to someone and making them laugh. Instead of always writing lol, we can actually see and hear them laugh out loud and know that its genuine.
