Increasingly our computers and smartphones are becoming the centerpiece of handheld, desktop and room-sized communication studios where we communicate our ideas, our personality and our 21st century digital literacy in a live setting. Webcam videoconferencing and microphone audio conferencing are a growing part of the social fabric of twenty-first century living which adds new elements to our social skills.
I have also noticed that I am not as confident when using a webcam as I am when speaking directly to someone. I become somewhat camera shy. I expect that this is probably something that many people experience. I am not sure how to overcome it, but I expect with more experience, I will begin to become more comfortable with the process.
