Image Statement: Man is by nature a social animal, an individual lives in social network with others inevitably. Recently, however, the modern people becomes more and more accustomed to living in non-contact communication through SNS, which can connect to each other only visually and superficially without sufficient emotional exchange. Such lack of emotional communication causes the people lost their existential ego-expression gradually, by being frozen into the unifying SNS media. Existentialism defined man as an individual existence itself not a mean for a something.
