how effective is online communication?Posted: September 6, 2014
I enjoyed this video as it questions the effective the internet as a tool for connecting people. The human interface becomes a symbol for human interaction through the computer. While he is communicating with people through email, he is essentially constrained by the 4 walls of the box. While the human interface portrays human interaction and communication, the box that serves as the ‘computer screen’ simultaneously symbolises the decreasing face-to-face interaction that results from online communication – it’s quite a powerful irony!
The internet allows us to connect with people more frequently ie. facebook posts and emails… but how effective is this medium of communication and human interaction? This is an idea I wish to explore in my final website, as I question the effectiveness of facebook as an online medium of communication.
