Passivity and Inner Emptiness as Sources of Social Networking

Connect-universum 2012
Author: Ryabov D.Y.

Annotation:

One of today’s most topical disadvantages of social networks is a feeling of emptiness that many Russian young people started to experience. Russian youth spends in social networks more time than any other nation, so we are the ones who are having this issue to the maximum.
According to Fromm, a person is passive when he is directed by forces that he doesn’t control. Such the person can’t act on his own; he just reacts to stimuli. That’s what we do in social networks.
Fromm says passivity causes boredom, which is today’s global problem of humanity. Because it creates inner emptiness that’s killing the heart of man.
Why do Russian young people fill themselves with an ocean of useless content instead of using the advantages of social networks? The answer is simple: they are passive and bored. That content has become the only thing that keeps them away from thinking about their unreached goals and inexperienced feelings in real life.
