In the creator’s own words: My project research on the addictive behaviour on social media in new generation where technology has been involve in many aspect of our life.
Children grow up with tool that entertaining and helping them get through sad and happy moments. The line between online and offline world has merged together. People prefer to text and talk digitally than face-to-face meeting. This lead to many problems.
In the book “Reclaming conversation” written by Prof. Sherry Turkle at MIT, She compared this addictive behaviour with climate change.We have never realised that it ruin our sense of human bit by bit untill it reach to the certain point where we can’t turn back time. That’s why we need to do something before it is too late to change the situation.
