“I have 422 friends, yet I am lonely….” is how this video starts.
Smartphones, iPhones, computers, tablets…. the lost connection of face-to-face time.
We type as we talk, we read as we chat, we get caught in the net, before we know it – we will have regret….. (paraphrasing some words from this wake-up call video named – Look-Up)
It’s true, many of us are glued to technology today. The digital world is overtaking our reality. We announce to the world when we are buying a coffee or walking the beach or simply enjoying a dinner with your family. Gone are the days when your private time or events are private.
As many people know privacy online is about zero. When you share a photo or your daily routine with what you believe is a few close friends, it only takes one of your friends to copy, paste and send it off to another wall or thread for more people to know.
Yes, our lives are now being digitalized (is that a word?) through our own fingertips.
‘Look Up’ is a lesson taught to us through a love story, in a world where we continue to find ways to make it easier for us to connect with one another, but always results in us spending more time alone.
