How many people have you met today?
When was the last time, you had a social contact that touched you?
With how many of those did you make eye contact or even speak or write with?
From how many people have you watched stories or seen their postings today?
No matter online or offline, we got the perfect mask at hand for every situation, so that we can feel safe. The right facial expression and gestures, suitable clothing, profile pictures and topics to talk about. Just enough individuality to be interesting, but not too much so that you don‘t attract unwanted attention.
But does this balancing act between individuality and anonymity succeed? Despite the large number of social contacts, more and more young people feel one thing above all: alone. Anonymous in a large crowd.
