Since the advent of online technology and subsequent rapid expansion of virtual wonderment that it manifested in the lifestyle of people has categorically delineated one very significant virtue, that virtual life is over-dominating the real world of human beings.
In view of the circumstances that intellectual expressions of people are getting confined to the precinct of digital world or virtual world, there is stark conclusion signifying the next generation would have incurable obsession of this cyber world, which would be confidently regarded as the most preferred rendezvous for the likeminded to speak their mind.
Why Do People Regard Virtual World A Safer Place For Their Intellectual Expressions?
Social media platforms, especially Facebook and Twitter are attributed to have distinctively inspired people to have their say safely, either through pseudo profiles or as a passive expressionalist over the subjects which they intrinsically feel to have their “expressed dissatisfaction” with.
As a matter of fact, we have so much deluded ourselves with the phony reputation of this virtual world that we deliberately tend to overlook our own existence with the real world to the detriment of family, friends and relationships.
Based on my intellectual obsession with knowledge and the developed subjective experience, I’ve reasoned out as per my own standpoint with regards to the question aforesaid:
Textual Expression Overweighs Verbal Expression:
The communication of belief or opinion through textual delineation, as I have personally observed myself, is very stronger as compared to the verbal expression wherein the speaker or commentator often fumbles for right words to convey message effectively.
In addition, those with agoraphobia (fear of public places) syndrome typically acquiesce to virtual places to speak their mind rather than ensuring their physical presence in open places and have their intellectual expressions stammered with nausea.
Virtual World Is A Tireless And Prompt Access To People’s Intellectual Expression:
How long will it take to tweet your intellectual expressions over a burning issue of your nation?
Less than a minute, I guess.
And that’s exactly what most people adore virtual platform for the least time-consuming verbalization of their intellectualism which could otherwise have been annoyingly time-consuming and less creative in an open place.
With smartphone powered by non-stop internet connection, getting an access to virtual world is technically very, very easy.
Well, that may not be an entirely true, as we’d witnessed the frenzy mob of demonstrators in support of establishing laws and orders in society or demanding justice against social menaces or apprehension of perpetrators.
However, witnessing such incidents in real life is quite exceptional as today’s smartphone-equipped generations have their deep-seated affinity with virtual world to have their say because that does the job instantly.
We’re Developing A Bystander Syndrome, Willingly Let The Sleeping Dogs Lie:
Well, the virtual world is certainly not a factor behind developing such a syndrome; most people deliberately subjugate themselves to their unwillingness of interfering in the status-quo, signifying “that’s none of my business” characteristic (a willingly and cunningly manufactured habit).
Such people take resort to social media and anonymously express their viewpoints, as somewhere deep-down, they crave to have their dissatisfaction expressed namelessly.
Introverts Evince Their Preferential Treatment To Virtual World
The way the consumption rate of online technology is increasing, we’d be besieged by the deluge of overwhelming power of digital world. Meanwhile, the increasing number of introverts is yet another fearsome contributory to the mounting popularity of virtual world, as they impulsively tie their affinity with the virtual social places so as to speak their mind safely without others intruding their ‘sweet home’ world.
No doubt these people deliberately cut off all social contacts and zero their presence in public places to express their thoughts.
