It saddens me how little real left. The world has turned into cyberspace.

All that you’ve said is true but it’s a double edge sword. Even the most introverted (me) are more capable of socializing through a keyboard. The social media culture is far from honest and vulnerable even if I am. Unfortunately it’s a culture that will only grow increasingly worse.

I like to think people do publish the unreal to the world through Facebook because it’s a chance for them to live in a fantasy of happiness. It’s a moment of retreat from their own misery.
