The usage of modern communication technology (i.e. smartphones, tablets, etc.) impacts the relationships among their users.
The dominance of media-based communication over face-to-face communication reduces the ability to feel empathy.
The more people are communicating via electronic media, the less interested they are in dealing with the perceptions of others. The longer and the more extensive the virtual communication between.
So creating hypotheses is an important part of scientific work (e.g. writing a research paper) which evolves from the general to the specific and leads from theory to practical research. This principle applies to all subjects which use this form of knowledge creation.
Hypotheses focus the research interest on the most important questions and thus generate a structure which then leads to the decision of which empiric tools to choose for research… which means that creating hypotheses precede research.
The main difference between theses and hypotheses is that theses are one-dimensional, whereas hypotheses link different characteristics and relate them to one another.
In the example above, the thesis refers to the communication of a certain group of people, whereas the hypothesis forms a connection between their habits and their behavior.
