Social media is just another tool for communicatin
We used to just grunt.Then came cave drawings, then eventually written word, the telegraph, the telephone, and so on. Now technology has provided us with new tools to use for communication, but most the old ones are still available as well. It's up to us which forms we choose when communicating. Certain things are better expressed in person, this is true. But social media is a terrific way to stay in touch with people you may not get a chance to see often. I enjoy seeing a young friend's wedding pictures. I like the freedom to express myself to a group of people. I don't think it should replace regular interaction, but emailing and texting can be very convenient.
