Our physical world is increasingly integrated with our virtual world. People are doing more things, and spending more time on the Internet. We are constantly bombarded with information presented on various media platforms that are shared in our virtual networks online. It is harder than ever to confirm the validity or relevance of much of this data.
Having common interests does not mean having the same political, spiritual, or other like qualities. We are exposed to more viewpoints and perspectives than ever before in human history.
