We live in a whole different world filled with "social" media. We use email, text messages, Facebook, twitter and other media to communicate.
We seldom make social phone calls or have face to face meetings. Ralph and I are as guilty as anyone. We frequently sit across from each other at a dining table with him working on his Ipad and me working on my Mini.
Whatever happened to conversation? It went away so gradually I did not notice.. Talk about absorbed in our own little worlds!
Talk would be interesting! We share everything 24/7, but we are ceasing to communicate. How can it be?
It appears that the computers, iPads and other personal communication devices are so dominating our every waking minute that we are slipping into a less responsive society.
Social? Not the skills I was taught! Communication? Well, it does keep us in touch with family friends and customers. I guess that does qualify as communication and it is via media. It is not as responsive as the old fashioned conversation and it feels a lot less personal.
It well could be that we are approaching a day when we will have to have a personal computer or equivalent to communicate at all. Instead of talking with the person across the room we will just text. Scary!
