Does this have anything to do with religion? Some religious people cultivate these fears and distrust of change. I particularly find your views to be a little odd. Where does "cohesiveness of society" factor in? At what expense? What exactly do you mean by 'a cohesive society'? One where the majority view is the accepted one? What if the old status quo just doesn't work anymore in a changing world?
Personally I find it difficult to imagine a world where people give up on normal social interaction to go just online, at least just yet. But who knows? Maybe soon there will be a way to look a projected hologram of someone halfway across the world right in the eye and hold a conversation as if that person were right next to you. I think such prospects are fascinating, and will make the world a smaller place (I'm not really a fan of small inward-looking places).
But anyways, speaking for myself, I love online conversations. Firstly because I am a socially awkward person by nature and secondly because I prefer to speak in English. I won't get that as easily here. I like the idea of using cyberspace as my workplace as well, there are just so many tools and possibilities at one's disposal.
It's always been the case that older generations resist change and some of the younger are eager for it, only to be the older ones in a few years time.
That's been happening since the days of my grandparents as far as I remember.
Edited to add:
The thing I think is really going to suffer in the next few years is the chance to have a simple life. That will be one of the high prices we will pay for being connected to everything all the time, and administration slowly migrating to cyberspace and computerized attendance.
I envy people who lead simple lives.
