A lot of our interactions occur through social media, some of our best business practices and experiences happen through the fingertips as we scroll through our mobiles or browsers alike, sifting through information. Many in stride consider such a distraction, though, much is the person walking by for a conversation or striding around the workplace on a scooter.
Interactions & Experiences Can Develop Knowledge
What is often misconstrued about social is that we are separate from our interactions there. Aligning digital as a sort of emphasized platform that only exists outside of our 9–5. Companies around the globe build and develop each day through these platforms, but continue to separate the users and their experiences as they misinterpret how one could engage throughout the day.
For some, if not a growing population of us, social is our means of interaction throughout the day, much as dialogue or even a digital notepad, it has developed to become a part of our lives. Though digital and life require a balance, allotting time to seek information or publish interactions is not a backward thought, it is an evolution of the concepts we iterate through on a daily basis.
Much as many stops to have a conversation, others pause, to share a tweet, like a post, or share an idea. Separate from these individuals is the idea that these platforms could be distracting to their own environment, these two are not mutually exclusive, much an argument for other contexts as well. Though there is time for deep work, there is also time for practicality. Often we understand more about experiences as we use them ourselves, learning to further iterate from experiential interaction.
As we approach an even deeper digital experience with virtual swinging by the sides, we must reform our perspective on how these platforms shape our experiences. As creators and developers, our outlooks on interaction should not be that of distraction, but more so of consideration for experience. Learning without reading one would argue, could be a challenge, therefore we needn’t slap the hand that picks up a book.
Variables can occur independent of each other, not looking for more information before relaying a conclusion can be a detriment. Learning to solve these experiences, create a better uniform solution, and develop our world in technology, we must accept the principles in which the interactions occur, and that practicing understanding with and of them is not always a distraction.
