I have listened to many people complain about social media and how it is so impersonal.
To that I say, "REALLY?!"
A common complaint is as follows: No face to face, person to person connection. . . and it's usually followed up by "why back in the day. . . " That is one phrase I can not stand and I'm calling them out!
"Back in the day" there was a little thing called a telephone. Said telephone had one line or, if you were unlucky, a party line. Let's talk the telephone line be it party or singular. This line could be tied up for hours as your sister talked endlessly gabbed to her friends or, the dreaded boyfriend..
NO ONE could get through when miss 'Chats-a-lot' decided to get on the line. Less than 2% of everyone you knew could stay in your life only because they would have had to write a letter or make the effort to call when wishing to catch up.
Well I say Welcome to the Future.
Now we have a little thing called the Internet. This amazing form of communication brought the percentage of person to person connection from less than 2% to over 67% staying current with friends and family.
I find the internet an amazing form of communication. We can keep in touch, track our children for safety and MAINTAIN those friendships long after Graduation, Marriages, maybe even Retirement.
You can stay up-to-date with your favorite Music, TV and Movie Celebs. See the weather before it happens and get connected to people, places and things that were virtually impossible "back in the day."
Instead of waiting for that supportive letter you can now shoot someone a text. Birthdays and holidays are less easily forgotten. I think this is all so cool and immediate. We, who have moved into the future see the good and applaud the capabilities we have at our fingertips. Technology rocks and it's only getting better!
