The Internet has totally changed the way my friends and I communicate.
In the past, when I hang out with friends, we would just hang out. We would chat over a meal or a drink.
Nowadays, when I hang out with friends, we’re chatting with each other online instead of in person, even though we’re sitting right next to each other.
Of course, we still do chat the traditional way, but it’s not uncommon to see the whole group of us sitting around a table together, all of us on our mobile phones, text-chatting with one another and with other online friends.
The Internet is not just an option anymore. It has become an integral part of our lives.
