Online socialising…

less than 1 minute read article I got from Walter without any reference to the author.

Two facts the article mentioned I found particular interesting:

  • News Corp. was paying a huge amount for facebook
  • Seok Kang found out, that online chat has a negative effect on social psychological well-being [1] - "online interaction with a lack of non-verbal cues leads to offline loneliness and depression".
