Are we more connected or more alone

Are we more connected or more alone?
With the development of technology, the mobile phones have more functions than before, they became the number one tool of communication for us, sometimes even surpassing face-to-face communication. As we know, almost everyone in our life spends too much time on phone, people text or surf the internet during meal time. They text and shop and go on social software during classes, during presentations, actually during all the time except sleeping. Those phones in our pockets are changing our minds and hearts because they offer us three grati fying fantasies. One, that we can put our attention wherever we want it to be; two, that we will al ways be heard; and three, that we will never have to be alone. And the third idea, is central to ch anging our psyches. Because the moment that people feel alone, even for a few seconds, they be come anxious, panic, fidget, they reach for a device. Being alone feels like a problem that needs to be solved. And so people try to solve it by connecting. I think we are more alone, I see that people can't get enough of each other, if and only if they can have each other at a dista nce, in amounts they can control, not too close, not too far, just right.

Shopping experience
To be honest, most of my shopping experiences are online shopping since I got my phone, actually I prefer to stay at home and do the shopping online rather than go out and walk along the street for a long time. Near the end of last semester, I wanted to knit a scarf for my mother in the cold winter, so I searched woolen yarns on Taobao, then the interface became colorful, there were many kinds of woolen yarns to choose. After considering, I decided to purchase the double knitting and the seller offer me a discount when I place an order and promise prompt service. But then I have waited for two weeks, it eventually arrived when I almost forgot it, and it’s really poor quality, so I kicked up a terrible fuss about it and make a complaint to the customer services. To my surprise, they promised me a full refund immediately. So the experience is not too bad. Collocations: online shopping, do the shopping, offer you a discount, place an order, prompt service, poor quality, kicked up a fuss, made a complaint
