Cyber age has offered a space that is accessible to millions of people around the globe, it glitters with attractive colors, offering a unique opportunity to develop and nourish relationship unheard of a few years ago. Virtual relations has become so real and intense that a lava of paradigm shift in the meanings of relationship will sweep away the necessity of physical proximity as a precondition for long lasting, emotionally strong and benevolent association.
To the advantage of many a virtual friend is known by his/her words, appreciative gestures by using “cyber language”, much of which is quite alien to parents of a young chatter even if the age difference is much less than the traditional “generation gap”. Attracted by immensely strong infatuators language many inexperienced blogger and chatters fall prey to “Love at first byte”, a phenomenon replacing another superficial phenomenon of “love at first sight” notwithstanding the fact that love at first sight, how so ever ridiculous it might sound, offered a little more eyes into sight full analysis to the reality.
For an average immoral person the devil of licentiousness starts to shy away with the abundance of wrinkles, however thanks to the cyberspace where fog of thick invisibility carries with it a recipe of eternal youth, an avenue for an old geezer to practice what his trembling body will not allow him otherwise, at least to the extent of verbally disgorging the crush.
Reality in virtuality does not have a dark side of fallacy alone, a plethora of opportunities flows in the clouds of internet from money making techniques to educating people and from stifling truth with the iron clutches of propaganda to waging culture warfare on our opponents. You can either securely sit on the back of a horse striding along the information highway with a tight grip on the reins of knowledge or you can be swept away with an inaccurate flash flood of absurdity, each of us who has become a victim of cyber addiction has forgotten the path that leads to the door of reality, for us reality lives within the pixels of our monitor, it speaks through a digitalized language of similes, mentoring and molding our behavior towards society.
Internet has opened a new front to a very complex life that we were living in, being a social animal man has been attracted to an opportunity to socialize and express him more than anything else, no wonder why social networking sites, opinion forum and chat sites grow like mushroom, they serve as honey pot to the hackers in quest to break into a group of like mined people, the happiness of finding a person who you can effectively communicate is not less than finding a friend who you can play basketball with.
How as an active member of cyber community would you explain the reality in virtuality, how often you have to go through an emotional trauma while losing trust, how often you become a victim of cyber bullying and how do you deal with it and above all how do you discriminate real from unreal, truth from a lie and information from disinformation.
