More and more people are depending on electronic communication rather than face-to-face interactions for socialization in the age of the internet. Young people have been leading this social trend knowing their privacy is at risk. The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic has heightened and strengthened this social phenomenon. This paper examines the phenomenon from an accidental classroom discussion and survey through a sociological lens, and provides some understanding and explanation with a sociological perspective.
