The Influence of the Internet on Interpersonal Communication
Interpersonal communication refers to the activities of face—to—face information and emotion communication among people. However, with the development of science and technology, the communication forms have becoming increasingly diversified, digitalized and public—oriented in the last decade.
The wide spread of internet access and the use of QQ, MSN, E—mail, blog, micro blog and some other emerging network communication platforms have exerted fundamental influence on interpersonal communication. These network platforms are capable of helping people get information more quickly and accurately, and they can also broaden people's interpersonal circle. However, as everyone knows, everything has two sides. There are also negative points in these new types of interpersonal communication. For example, people may write blogs about their classmates or workmates around them, and these stories may be spread, thus influencing the relationships between people in reality. What's more, if people spend too much time and effort on blog writing, they may have no chance and spirit to have face—to—face communications. Consequently, their ability to deal with people in life may decrease.
For me, though emerging network communication platforms can benefit us, they are only some ways of communication and will never take the place of face—to—face communication. Therefore, we should never neglect the effect of face—to—face contact in real life.
