BRAIN: The Technological Advent and Dynamics of the Network Society. The “MiddleAged Approach”

In the latest BRAIN journal, a few researchers joined forces in developing a study on Technological Advent and Dynamics of the Network Society, with a reference to the MiddleAged Approach.

Elena-Mădălina Vătămănescu, Elena-Alexandra Gorgos,  Andreia-Gabriela Andrei and  Vlad-Andrei Alexandru from Bucharest, Romania focused on researching how the network society has affected people aged 55 to 64.


These days, researchers have ended up inspired by the ways new media impact youngsters,in any case, its impact on moderately aged individuals have not been completely analyzed. This age classification is frequently disregarded as a large portion of the online exercises are performed by youthful people.

New media assembles a extensive variety of wonders which may get to be ideas of the system society through theirassorted qualities, information and oddity. Intuitiveness is the most imperative trademark, turning the client into a substance maker, not simply into a beneficiary.

In addition, what was once thought to be an individual perspective has a tendency to end up a part of the general population area. Beginning from these premises, the article progresses the Internet can be valuable for young people, as well as for the mid life bunch situated towards staying in contact with relatives and companions and towards finding online valuable data.

At this level, the present paper expects to find headings given by system society in the lives of moderately aged individuals. To this end, the examination depends on a meeting based study which addresses the way individuals may adjust to correspondence innovation and to its particularities, investigating focal points or finding potential disadvantages.

At present, new media don’t unfurl a honest to goodness substitution of up close and personal correspondence, be that as it may, a “conceivably productive exchange” rises between the two casings of reference. All things considered, online groups – saw as gatherings made out of people who populate the Web and all the intrinsic applications – have turned into a critical part of the contemporary society and their impact is as yet developing.

The attention to others’ nearness and the learning picked up are crucial in online correspondence. Then again, utilizing online correspondence may not end up being extremely effective in advancing social connections on the off chance that one consolidations with his PC and overlooks eye to eye correspondence.

At the point when attempting to remain in contact with somebody, other individuals, physically drew closer to the Internet client, may be overlooked. Along these lines, it might be encountered an absence of social similarity or an absence of legitimate dialogs, the online discourse exploiting.

In this manner, social connections are feeble on the one side and turned out to be effective on the opposite side, set apart by innovation. Proceeding with this line of argumentation, the exploration considers that eye to eye correspondence might be completely substituted by intercede correspondence, bringing about the lessening of correspondence quality.

The online model adjusts by age, the vast majority of the clients being youthful. Nonetheless, innovation gets to be somehow, irreplaceable for moderately aged individuals when their work forces discarding new media in various ways: electronic mail, web journals, texting, particular gatherings or even interpersonal organizations.

Past every day occasions, there are patterns among moderately aged people to give another direction to social works on, changing social examples. Concentrating on the hones created on the web, this paper underpins the hypothesis that solid social online relations tend to embrace the picture of social connections conceived and created disconnected.
