Can you imagine that more than millions of people in Chinese mainland will spend lots of time on SNS to play game and talk to friends, especially white-collars who work in the cities? Take kaixin001.com as an example, the current member of it has already hit 38 million.
However, the great mount of people who would like to use such SNS indicates another social problem. That is lots of people choose to escape from the reality. Social reality dose have lots of uncertain elements, and could even make people feel bad about their lives, but no one can get rid of it and live all his life in beautiful dreams.
Some people decide to taste all the things ought to be there in their lives. Whether it is helplessness or misery, they bravely face all of them and become more mature after every tough experience. While, some else choose to escape temporally. SNS just offer them a Virtual space to forget the reality.
Kinds of games and various of friends do give netizens lots of fun. Indulging, dreaming, chatting and playing, seems like people could really escape from all the upsets in reality. But, Virtual world is not the real one can live in it forever, and reality is not that simple like noodling around on the internet.
Finally, some people are aware of the situation they are in; they figure out the abrupt contrast between dream and reality. This time, they choose to run away again, but from the dream, from kaixin and so on; and they are going back to the real world to live the real life.
Kaixin does not make every user feel happy, and that upsets the SNS too. How to turn such SNS to be more beneficial and how to make people realize SNS is not the paradise which could neglect the reality is becoming the focus of attention gradually. Due to the social responsibility and conscience, both SNS and public should have to worry about the problem carefully.
