On social media, you can connect with a large number of people while remaining snuggly in your personal, little cocoon. You don’t have to even engage with your network much, let alone connect with them emotionally. And yet, from that emotionally-detached cocoon, you can engage with many, many people at once and leave them all feeling very much connected with you.
This is a new experience who’s operators don’t seem to be clearly introverts or extroverts. Is social media spelling the end of introversion?
