Escapism through video games and social media

Sometimes the world can be hard and there isn’t much we can do when we are trying not to get sick in a pandemic or we are just introverts. Talking to people through games or making tiktoks talking to people have become popular more so now than before.

Either it’s creating whole worlds in Sims, hiding your true identity with cosplay for twitch, or coming up with a tiktok niche/persona, there are so many people that find was to reach others without touching them.

How has this changed in the past decade and what is the forecast for future years?
