DIRECT COMMUNICATION AND COMMUNICATION THROUGH SOCIAL NETWORKS IN THE 21ST CENTURY

AN ATTEMPT TO RECONCILIATE THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THEM

  • Elena Onețiu

Abstract





The person is ontologically a communicational person, a relational being. Through communication we do not communicate just a message formed of words, but most of the times, beyond words we share a part of who we are and we receive a part of what the other is. Communication has as a final target to achieve communion, it is meant to lead us to the other’s inner self, to advance from me and you to the opening of us. Social networks, as the most used means of communication today, may enhance the entire process, but they may also limit it. In order to explore the facilities and excesses that pertains the use of social networks, we have used a questionnaire specifically designed for this aim, and the results of this research are presented in the last part of the present study.
