I have been using Facebook since 2007 and I’m pretty sure our generation got addicted to messaging and texting around that time. later on I started using Twitter and Instagram as well but throughout my socializing experience through these sites and apps I can assert that people are a lot different in person and sometimes people look completely different in person as compared to how they look on their profile. A lot of times people meet each other on Facebook and have conversations for a long time. but when they actually meet, their whole personality can turn out to be completely different.
I feel Lauren Mcarthy’s Crowdpilot and Inneract are two apps that encourage face to face interaction and gives people moments of happiness. I’m not trying to say that these apps are better than Facebook or Twitter when it comes to socializing. I’m just trying to say that building up a relationship having face to face conversations is going to be a truer and a more real relationship than that built up through long conversations over text.
posting stuff like “High five me”, “listen to this song with me” and then people actually showing up to do it is a more appealing form of socializing to me. It also might just help you find people who have common interests with you that might eventually turn into good friendships. In conclusion, Inneract and Crowdpilot are actually apps that support and encourage face to face interaction
