facebook

I saw this article “Facebook ‘sex chats’ blamed for one in five divorces” in the Daily Mail all about Facebook being blamed for a rise in divorces. ¬†After my reading and studying of Facebook recently, I was struck by this and realise that one of the dangers of Facebook is that you can take away boundaries and allow for much more of a hidden conversation. When you don’t see people reactions you can create a different persona because you don’t see uncomfortableness or embarrassment. You are connect in away that has never been seen before. This danger is being lived out by so many people. I wonder what we can do as people to protect ourselves from our own selfish desires. Mcluhan said that when extend something we always lose something and he is right in this case too. Facebook extends our connection but it also diminishes many protect layers in our lives. Wonder what we are to do about protecting ourselves from the dangers?
