Is Social Media making us more argumentative?

December 16, 2012

I see so much angst on social media. So many angry posts about companies and people without really understanding the situation. Angry people wanting to blame someone or the other. So many posts about feeling victimized. So many posts about passing judgement without evidence or listening to reason. Shouting has become so easy, there’s always someone to listen. I wonder, is social media is making us more argumentative.

    I believe it makes us more sure than we should be so when we are wrong, we accept criticism even badly than before. It builds a fake confidence, which leads to arguments only, from which nothing could be gained as a moral.
