20 years of life “murdered” by the Internet

  In 1998, it must be said that it was the genesis year of China Internet Galaxy. Perhaps because of the speed of change and the uncertainty of resources, traces of state-owned capital are rare in the Internet industry, showing atypical sunshine characteristics. Several Internet companies that emerged in spite of each other and emerged weakly turned out to be all giants who will rule the Chinese Internet world in the future, opening up a new online life for the Chinese for 20 years.
  The new identity of “netizen” at that time, together with Internet companies, officially “debut” in 1998.
  QQ and WeChat are the most used instant messaging software by Chinese people, from initially helping people connect with others, to defining how people connect with others, they have completely changed the way Chinese people socialize and even life itself in 20 years.
Withered red and white roses

  Looking back on the 20 years from 1998 to the present, people can list a long list: life “murdered” by the Internet. There must be a “chat ability” item in this table, which is the degradation of real ability mainly caused by QQ and WeChat.

  ”No chat without emoji” is one of the worries of contemporary young people and has invaded real life. The “little cute” who met each other on the Internet met in real life. Too many embarrassing moments were not filled with exaggerated expression packs. In the end, they had to say nothing to each other. Make a decision in secret, qualified netizens must avoid this kind of offline “low quality” awkward chat.
  Similar distress, as well as “the speed of typing is fast, but it is difficult to fully dictate a paragraph”. A generation who grew up in the Internet age, fast typing is a basic skill, but sorting out thoughts and expressing a complete expression seems to require special learning. There is also “half chatting, looking down at the phone.” This switch from reality to the Internet was initially regarded as rude by people, and later became almost as usual as watching watches.
  The “murder” of the network is also “memory”. It’s hard to say what people can remember now. Einstein had a famous saying in his life: “Just remember the things that are not in the book.” But now, there is nothing that is not on the Internet. Netizens can use the search engine to query everything, and what is not in the search engine can also be backed up to the cloud. . The Internet not only helps people remember the knowledge required for textbooks, but also helps people remember various anniversaries and all exam dates.
  Online “murder” old friends. Everyone is a network neighbor, no one is your old friend. As long as you want to find ta, ta can appear on your WeChat. Modern society discourages “remembering”, “meeting”, and “adding WeChat, then contacting”. Although the old friend has n’t met in 10 years, ta is on your WeChat list and is always online.
  The real “murder” of the Internet is the red roses and white roses, which are the delicate feelings.
  People who used to fall in love have to spend a lot of time tangling, suffering, waiting, and forgetting. But in the current relationship, you don’t have to have the courage to meet each other, you can video call at any time; you don’t have to press the cranky, send a message at any time to ask, you can send again if you don’t reply Everything becomes a breeze, even frivolous. The pain of time, the accumulation of emotions, and the torture of beauty have disappeared.
  Social networks encourage greed and aversion, and can’t help but pull. In this way, love no longer ferments, and red roses and white roses are simultaneously “murdered” by the Internet. Everything is at your fingertips, mosquito blood on the wall, rice stickies on your chest.
  The British “Daily Mail” also lists a list of “things being” killed “by the Internet”. These include “privacy”, “letter writing”, “correct spelling”, “listening to a record from beginning to end”, “mainstream media”, “buried artist”, “punctual virtue”, “polite rejection ability” and so on.
  Therefore, some people say that between life and death, this is the rolling of the wheel of history, but I have to sigh that some life and death are good things, some life and death are regrets, and some life and death are dangerous things.
Small-scale ileum

  Cut off is inevitable, there will always be so many times in life. In reality, the cut-off relationship often shows a tragic temperament, but we later have the Internet.
  The primary level is that WeChat does not look at each other ’s circle of friends. We usually treat friends who suddenly made WeChat like this; the upgraded version deletes contact information, such as some unknown WeChat friends. This kind of cut-off method is simple and easy to operate. Often, the hand is moved before the brain has figured it out. Every decisive decision will trigger a small-scale soul-stirring.
  But the cut-off with strangers on WeChat is actually not called cut-out, at most it is to clean up WeChat friends.
  There is no difference in the operation of the true lovers, the difference is the operation object-the cleaning is not the merchant, but the once real friend.
  This kind of cut-off operation is often unilateral. You deleted the other party, and the other party did not find out until two months later. There might be a moment of sorrow, but the sense of ceremonies of the cut-off relationship completely disappeared. There was no last meeting between the two parties, no dialogue, no retention, no memories.
  But anxiety about the sense of ritual is not so important, because new problems have come one after another. Personal contact has been canceled. Will the group that exists be withdrawn? You can’t retreat, or you can’t retreat. As long as you are still in the world, as long as you are in contact with any of them, you will be found by the other party. Because they are inextricably linked to each other, there are few real exits in the Internet age. The Internet can return at any time, but it is equivalent to in 1998, you angrily hung up your friend’s phone.
  If the group can’t retreat, then leave the social network completely?
  Never deal with one person and social media. In 2012, a star decided to quit Weibo because of cyber violence. More than 1,000 Weibo posts are deleted one by one, and the deletion ends at 1 o’clock the next day. Even so, her past blog posts are still circulating on the Internet in the form of screenshots.
  What if we quit WeChat? In 2017, WeChat launched the new function of canceling account. This operation is irreversible. Once you log out, you will not be able to use WeChat as a medium to enter other networks and realize payment functions.
  The network is a virtual world, but the network is also an empire closely related to reality. The door is open when you enter, but at the moment when you decide to quit, we will be shocked to find that it is extremely difficult to leave the network without leaving traces. It is even equivalent to quitting life. The internet is not ready for you to go out.
  Fortunately, netizens will save themselves. Insist on giving yourself an online name, expressing emotions in a dramatic way, forwarding and supporting, caring about politics in a popular way of joking, collectively pessimistic, and collectively reveling.
  Looking back at the past 20 years, the biggest and saddest freedom that the Internet has given the Chinese is not to regard Internet freedom as a real freedom.
Adaptable

  Even the online name began to “historize”.
  The online world was called “virtual world” in 1998, but by 2018, this kind of argument basically disappeared. Because a question lay in front of us: after the implementation of the real-name system on the Internet, what is the difference with reality?

  The real-name network is still a network, and it cannot become a three-dimensional reality. But on the other hand, it is definitely no longer the original network.
  Is the network real-name system just as simple as uploading an ID card? If so, the real-name system is not a concern. The real real-name system is the reproduction and extension of social relations in the online world in reality, and the intrusion of organizational life into social networks.
  The so-called organization is relative to the individual. Socialization is often a spontaneous and informal, horizontal rather than hierarchical, dynamic communication between individuals. It is naturally separated from power. But organizations are often formal, vertical and hierarchical, static and rigid communication.
  What is an organization’s invasion of a social network?
  In your WeChat list, “satisfaction and contentment” is the father, “Caiyun chasing the moon” is the mother, and the leaders and teachers are mostly real names. Vice versa, you are also a real-name netizen of the other party. In short, everyone sees the identity of “Netizen” more and more. Anyway, they all know who it is, and even the net name is no longer needed. It is better to use the real name consistently, but to exude an adaptive frankness.
  What’s wrong with this? Thousands of good, convenient is the best, but the suffering of convenience also comes with it.
  The root of suffering is that WeChat breaks the social barrier.
  For example, in the past, the school only needed to hold a parent meeting once every semester. Teachers and parents only met once every six months, and then they went back to their homes and were at ease. The children were relieved to get room for maneuver and buffer. But now with WeChat, the gap is broken. Teachers and parents take a WeChat group, and they easily become online neighbors, and can interact in the group every day. The “Cloud Parent Meeting” is held anytime, anywhere. Teachers, parents and children, everyone walks into the Wuzhi Mountain.
  Give another example. Before leaving work, everyone was wonderful. Unless there was a big event, no one would dial the phone at home. But now, it’s so convenient to be in the group with each other, making people have to stand by. Real-name instant messaging software makes the network included in reality, and makes the real tentacles have to be elongated. Taking time as the unit of measurement, the boundaries between work and life are gradually disappearing. This is the other side of the convenience coin, and it is people’s lingering worries about the development of strong technology.
  At a deeper level, behind the real-name netizen relationship is the social politics of the real-name system, which forces the retreat of personal identity, so that the netizens who grew up in the past have to return to the strict and friendly disguise embarrassment.
  On January 21, 2011, WeChat went live. The startup interface is a lone figure, standing on the horizon, facing the blue planet, as if expecting a call from the same kind.
  But in recent years, different voices have emerged: WeChat is a nursing home, and Weibo is the flower world. If we still say that we are lonely individuals logging into WeChat, then only half of this sentence is right now. Although in the crowd, we may still be alone.
  Where there are people, there is politics, not to mention WeChat is full of people with real names. This status quo allows some WeChat friends to return to Weibo to share their lives. Because to a certain extent, even if Weibo is also a real-name social software, it can always change the “vest (a network name)” and escape from the acquaintance circle.
