Social war facing YouTube and Tiktok

We humans are known as social animals. Interacting with friends and family across long distances has been a concern of human race for centuries. Communication is the base of humanity to strengthen their relationships. 

When face-to-face discussions are impossible or inconvenient, humans have dreamed up plenty of creative solutions. The earliest methods of communicating across great distances used written correspondence delivered by hand from one person to another, i.e, letters.
