Reality is the sum or aggregate of all that is real or existent within a system, as opposed to that which is only imaginary. Online is connected to, served by, or available through a system and especially a computer or telecommunications system (such as the Internet).
It’s no lie that there’s a mismatch between online and reality. In recent times the difference has been so glaring. How do you compare online classes and lecture room discussions, online advertised products and the physical products purchased? You see different lifestyles which contradicts an individual’s true person. In this article, we’ll highlight various aspects of human endeavor with reference to the theme of discourse. You are in for a great ride, please do read on!!!
1)LIFESTYLE AND ROMANTIC RELATIONSHIPS :
We all know the routine: Scroll through Twitter, share a few thoughts, retweet a couple of people’s posts , like a handful of Tweets, go through the same process on Instagram, WhatsApp,Facebook,Snapchat and the other apps known. One cannot compare the virtual world to the real world as they are completely different things. People who use what they see online as benchmarks for their relationships and their lives are most times set up for a massive disappointment. We would not deny the fact that there are some lifestyles cum personalities online that have substance and portray truth, but there is still a wide disparity from reality.
We see people stepping forward talking about how they lived this falsely extravagant life online just to receive the validation of complete strangers.
On the other hand, people still display falsehood even in real life but this cannot be matched with what we get on social media.
In today’s world, the advent of virtual learning is no longer news. There are a lot of courses online that one can take and become certified in but does that take out the place of on site learning? Real time learning affords you the opportunity to interact physically with your tutors and fellow students. It brings this deep feeling of closeness to what is being taught as compared to online learning. Ranging from limited scope of learning as touching practical based situations, Network inconsistencies to data availability, online learning sure does come with it’s own cons. Online learning sure does have the capacity to reach out to a larger audience than the traditional classroom setting.
No doubt we live in a business-world dependent on online , sales, marketing and reviews.
Not only is it rare to come across a business or product lacking in one way or other in sales, marketing strategy and in online reviews but these brief tidbits of information have become so popular that when a business lacks them entirely, it’s suspicious and should not be referred better than reality.
There are businesses whose presence and standard online matches with their physical representation, but we still have a lot of exaggeration of products online. A lot of us have heard and seen stories of the “what I ordered VS what I got” trending, some of us have experienced it at one point in time or the other.
Having a steady customer of worth is a well-trusted and valuable source in today’s market. They’re powerful enough to make a substantial impact on a business’s sales.This makes online sales, marketing and online reviews for better customer service a valuable part of business operations.
That being said, there can be quite a lot of misunderstanding when it comes to expectation on online business to fit more than reality.Online business is the best in effectively reaching out to every expectations of the business owners and the customers to be at its best optimal level overtime. More so, offline businesses are solid and dependable but have limited reach. Online businesses have a potential massive reach, but they involve a typically higher level of risk due to the greater competition.
4) COMMUNICATION AMONGST FRIENDS AND FAMILY:
Online communication has become a centerpiece in the social life of many individuals. With people spending most of their time to communicate with their friends and families through chat and instant messaging, it’s effects on real life communication cannot be ignored.
There is need for people to integrate both the online communication and the real life interaction for quality friendship, this will establish the relationship between the real-life and online communication.
In conclusion, There should actually be a balance between both online and on site activities. So we encourage you, the next time you choose to post on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, to think about why you are sharing what you are posting .Live your life according to your standards, not to everyone else’s.Try not to always make what you see on social media your first line of action or guideline. Choose learning options that suit your comfortability and goals, don’t box yourself in a particular method. In business, you should pay attention and ask enough questions before going in to purchase goods online so you don’t get dissapointed by your purchase. Note that online business is much simpler and less expensive and more productive in structure even though offline businesses are solid and more dependable. In communication, Pay attention to spending quality time with family and friends, don’t limit your building your relationships to social networking unless of course you are in distant locations and there’s no means of physical reach.
In our opinion, we think that your present need would define which of the methods you’ll be maximizing. In other words, this is to say that you should make efforts to make the best of whichever option you choose, to ensure you achieve proper end results.
