In a previous work (Lucchiari & Folgieri 2015), we considered communication among young people. New digital-natives do not communicate in a traditional way, but they choose different means and ways. It is not a surprising conclusion that a large part of digital-natives considers obsolete both Web sites’ structure and Internet navigation modes, learning instruments and paradigms and communication tools, choosing, instead, fast and immediate media like mobile phone communication, social networking and so on (Croitoru et al. 2011). Notwithstanding we could think they lack of communication skills, actually, they communicate with each other much more than ever done, using not only the verbal language, but also images, videos, sounds, and especially emotions.
We named this phenomenon telepatheia or, better, sympateia, meaning that they seem to keep in contact independently by the mean. Of course, on our intention, this does not mean that we are observing a new organic evolution, but surely a kind of evolution can be traced: an era in which human and machines are evolving, influencing one each other, determining a specific kind of communication strongly influenced and related to technology.
