It happened in a Facebook discussion. I was saying that a project was in its 59th day and I’d be back in a few days. Apparently, no one care to read the thread. They all jumped on a few words they recognize and fired up their keyboard. Thanks. But my birthday is in December. 🙂

This is a result of social media explosion and information overload. Words and information flow from keyboard every minute. It reaches people in a second, if not sooner. To cope with the onslaught, we try to learn new words, new acronyms, and new hashtags. We expand our speed reading capabilities but forget to read. We are easily excited or agitated over a single word. We are stressful all day.

This could affect relationship as well as customer services. We only pick up superficial meanings, but have no time to recognize all related matters. We misunderstand each other and argue frivolously. Our exchange becomes tense and engagement becomes difficult. Often, we are regretful after a few minutes and want to cancel tweets, Facebook posts, and emails.

To ease the distress, I often give myself timeout, meditate for a few minutes, skip posts I don’t have time to read, and read only if I want to engage. How do you deal with the situation?
