I pose this question because I have seen many different facets of, this fairly recent phenomenon, known as, “Social Media”.
Years ago, when MySpace was the place to be, my daughter, and many of her friends, called it a friendship/relationship destroyer!! I saw it in action! However, I had the most unlikely encounter from a stranger that found me on MySpace years ago, who wired me $500 to help me with repairs to my house!! I was frightened. I had only mentioned a cracked window in my son’s room. He somehow got my zip code through ??? When I asked, “Why”?, he simply stated he was having a good day! Wow! I haven’t spoken to him since.
I see Fathers and Sons, Mothers and Daughters, Friends, etc…enjoying a meal at a restaurant together, yet NEVER making eye contact. They are too busy making “contact” with others, on their respective mobile devices, to enjoy one another’s company! However, if you take pictures of the food you eat, there are apps you can download to upload those pics to support charities for the hungry!!
I’ve witnessed FB family feuding (so silly) and FB family reunions (wonderful)!!
Many people get ripped off through Internet Scams while others make Fortunes through Internet Driven Businesses!!
It’s up to you to Connect, or Not to Connect! Make the most of it!!
Most importantly….Don’t forget EYE Contact and REAL hugs and kisses!!! XOXO!
