For better? or for worse? THAT is the question.
Now we can stay in touch with lots of people all at once. We can post pictures and in a matter of minutes hundreds of our friends can see them. But this can also mean that we don’t have to talk specifically to any person in particular. If we put it out there to the world then we don’t have to send individual messages to all our friends.
There is lots of opportunity to actually have MORE trouble staying in touch with people than before social media. This is because when we do mass updates, we may often forget personal updates.
I think it’s important to find balance, to make time to talk to people, personally.
Send a letter.
Make a phone call.
If we are in touch with everyone all the time…then when are we ever really in touch with someone in particular?
