We’ve got eight zillion social networking sites and apps all vying for our attention, connecting us to strangers around the world, and it’s a great thing. This is an age of instant and ideas and make no mistake, it’s nothing short of magical.
But how much of this comes at the expense of our connections to those around us?
How many couples sit in bed, each on their own computer, interacting with other people instead of one another? How many kids sit at the dinner table texting on their cell phones rather than talking with their families?
And at the end of the day, when we close our eyes, are we not just a little bit lonelier than we were before this age of connectivity?
