Transcript of Virtual Communication VS Real Communication

Virtual Communication VS Real Communication Personal Better Communication Face to Face Communication Safer Advantages of Face-to-Face communication During a face-to-face conversation, it is able to have more interactions, including body contacts.
eg. Hugging
This help us to form a better bond or connection.

-You know who you are talking to.
-You're able to observe a person more closely, finding out their true identity.
-Oral communication can also be the safest way to transfer private and confidential information/matter During real communication, people can pick up nonverbal cues that we might otherwise miss, helping us to understand the messages sent by each other.
eg. Email can be easily misinterpreted Non-verbal communication is a key part in communicating effectively.
eg. gestures, nodding, smiling.
This communication can be helpful when delivering something as simple as a joke. Without facial expressions, hand gestures or even a laugh the other party may not understand the message that you are sending across. False Identities Did you know? 5-10% of the population is internet dependent.

Average internet use is 3.5 hours a day.

There were 19,554,832 Internet users as of Dec./2011, 88.8% of the population. However, this now leads to a new issue: the increasing negative impacts of internet communication. That in Australia... Ever since the INTERNET was introduced to the world, its use has increased dramatically. We now have 1 billion users around the globe surfing the Internet every month. Online communication can provide a curtain to a real person's identity. This is especially common in chat rooms or online dating situations where individuals will portray themselves as someone else.
As people do not see each other during online conversations, nor do they speak in person, it is hard to find out who you are really talking to. Theft of Personal Information If you use the Internet for online banking, social networking or other services, you may be at risk of leaking this personal information such as name, address, credit card number etc.

Criminals can access these personal information through unsecured connections or by planting software. They can then use this personal information for their benefit, putting your safety in great danger. Social Disconnection With the internet, we can do almost everything online--take classes, work, pay bills, shop... People don't even need to go out, because things can be done at home. Therefore, the relationships in a community are no longer as tight as before.

Further more, people are getting engulfed in a virtual world and are drifting apart from their friends and family. Today, even children choose to play online games rather than going out to play with other kids. Online communication does not allow users to see one another or speak to each other face-to-face. Though the use of video chat can allow users to speak face-to-face virtually, chat programs and e-mail do not always allow this.

An online friendship does not have the same contact as a physical one, such as meeting up in person, speaking over the telephone, and having a conversation. Nor does it allow you the physical experience and comfort of having a friend by your side.
No physical cues: without facial expressions and gestures or the ability to retract immediately there’s a big risk of misunderstanding
There is neither a voice tone nor facial expression associated with a text-based communication. Therefore misunderstandings are common as words can be interpreted in different ways. Impersonal Online communication can take more time than a live conversation. This is because the time it takes to type, wait for a response and then type again interferes with the flow of the conversation itself.
E-mail is especially time-consuming since an individual has to type his half of the conversation, send it, and wait for a response. Depending on the time it takes for the recipient to receive the message, read and type their own response, a person can wait from a few hours to even a couples of days to complete one conversation. Time-Consuming Body Language Positive Body Language Negative Body Language Body language is a language without spoken words. It is a type of non-verbal communication.
It can come in a cluster of signals and postures, depending on the internal emotions and mental state. Fear, anxiety and nervousness Relaxed posture - Comfortably seated, relaxed breathing, no visible stiffness. --> no major barriers to communication.
Arms relaxed - Uncrossed arms and hands open-->signs of openness.
Good eye contact - Looking in the other person's eyes -->interest in that person.
Nodding agreement - Nodding while someone is speaking -->agreement, interest and understanding.
Smiling/adding humour -->It signals a warm personal relationship.
Gesturing warmly - Talking with hands --> involvement in the conversation and openness to the other person. Positive body language is generally quite reliable as an indicator of a person's feelings. It signals interest in the other person and in the conversation. Examples of Positive Language Actions that are generally considered negative can indicate that the person is tired, nervous or result from other matters that are weighing on this person's mind. Body tense - Stiffness, wrinkled brow, jerky body motion --> concern with the topic or dealing with the other person.
Arms folded in front - Creates a barrier--> disagreement with what is being said.
Hand on face - A hand over one's mouth, leaning on one's elbow--> boredom.
Fidgeting - Moving around a lot, drumming fingers--impatience & nervousness
Distraction - Eyes flicking about, blank stares, flipping through literature without really reading it...
Leaning away - Avoiding moving closer --> Alarmed, closed to others
Negative facial expressions - These include shaking head, eyes narrowed, scowling, frowning--> contempt, anger, disagreement... How To Spot A Liar In Conclusion... Despite the convenience of virtual communication, real communication can construct and maintain a better relationship!

REMEMBER the meanings behind body-languages!
You can use them to learn more about other people as well as helping yourself to leave a positive impression. THANK YOU! Everyone can use the internet freely; sending emails, uploading photos, reading blogs and so much more. Do you know who you are talking to? Misunderstanding of words can result serious relationship break up! 55% of meaning in an interaction comes from facial and body language, 38% comes from vocal inflection, 7% of in interaction’s meaning comes from the words themselves. Body language also adds intensity to the process of communication.
Because gestures, change of posture and proper eye contact can make face-to-face communication more figurative. In business settings, managers who make an effort to communicate with employees face-to-face can build strong relationships and enhance trust. By Jennifer Ma
