Human relationships is something interesting discussion. The relationship involves not only physical but also emotional. Currently, where informatics era is ongoing, human relationships become less physical intensity. People prefer have relationships with others through social media. Indeed, there is a big difference if we interact in the virtual world by real interaction.
There are negative impacts on virtual relationship. However, the positive excesses are also prominent. We can communicate with some friends who lived across the ocean there without face to face interaction. We can even shed our complaints to someone who is not physically we've never met. Of course, there are negative effects that can occur as I meant above. Often we find fraud in this manner.
In the virtual world interacting, we should realistic. That is, we aware that our friends are virtual in cyberspace. He or she was not our real friends, even if they are exist. It is also worth noting that many of the perpetrators of the virtual world using a false name or pseudonym. So keep thinking that they were our friends, but only our friends in cyberspace. Obviously this will affect the relationship between you and your virtual friends pattern.
Very reasonable if we are careful to interact with virtual friends. Fraud in the virtual world have often heard. It would be very nice if you could do a physical meeting with your friend face to face. You can assess and compare his or her performance between the virtual and real world. Too careful also not recommended, we should indeed remain vigilant. Awareness that our friends were just friends in the virtual world are helpful enough.
