The invisible bondage that keeps on pressing its victims, making them slaves to today’s society. Spending, spending, spending! The movement that banks are so happy to support...</p> Wed, 20 Jul 2016 22:25:00 +0100 The smartphone addiction and nomophobia syndrome <p>The cell phone addiction is, for many, the disease of the XXI century. So much that, the dread of being deprived of it can already be identified as a syndrome for a large part of the residents, without those affected being aware of it. The best cell phone, either with or without the internet, a smart phone or the lifelong type, is the one that we use only when it is useful for us.

But how has this change transpired? </p> Tue, 12 Apr 2016 14:35:00 +0100 The need to frame moments of our lives on Instagram <p>The social network Instagram is distinct. We are all allowed to become and ‘instant artist’ and to show with photos what we can do, how we feel, where we are and how we are having a great time somewhere. However, many users have accepted this social network as an ideal opportunity to bother their friends and show things that nobody wants to watch...</p> Sat, 09 Apr 2016 22:05:00 +0100 How much of our ‘true selves’ do we project on Facebook? <p>We have a name and a surname on Facebook. That’s how they all search as and find us there. But how much of us can fit in a name and a surname? It’s like saying we are what is written on our identifications.

So we play a certain role we assign ourselves, always playing it to the fault, like preparing for a job interview, anything must be perfect and rehearsed. Well done and suitable. We must be chosen for the position. But what position is that – they haven’t told us yet!</p> Sat, 02 Apr 2016 19:10:00 +0100 Do you believe in everything that you think about yourself? <p>Do you have faith in in yourself? Do you have an image about yourself which you are trying to follow? Is that image the accurate echo of who you are or just an imaginative made for the masses in order to cover up your real self? I have noted that the impression I had of myself during the course of my life has notoriously influenced the results I get. Many of us live our lives without thinking about these notions.<span class="redactor-invisible-space"></span> </p> Wed, 30 Mar 2016 08:35:00 +0100 How much of our lives in Social Networks is social? <p>We all live and breathe Social Network today. But how much of that communication is social and how much of that information is actually rather private? It is well known that social interacting has been a great breakthrough with sites like Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+. They have entered all aspects of our lives, from business, social to private. In this day and age, it’s becoming more and more challenging to make a clear cut between them, to somehow know which belongs where, and how much of that ‘real life’ we are supposed to share.</p> Fri, 25 Mar 2016 05:15:00 +0000 How much is the media shaping our opinion and influencing our perception of reality? <p>The language has always had a great ability to create realities. We have always had the ability to invent imaginative stories that correspond to nothing that we have lived. Therefore, all that is communicated in words has the uncertainty of the truth. Instead, the information that we perceive through the senses has always had great reliability, although some moments at some point have been questioned. What we see, feel and touch has always given us great security. With the current media, this security is disappearing.</p> Wed, 16 Mar 2016 11:20:00 +0000 Is machinery the end of a lot of careers? <p>The change in recent years has been dramatic; from the Internet to devices that are evolving daily, such as smartphones, not to mention scientific advances.
