social media zombies

by Colleen

I still don't have a facebook account, nor do I tweet. I work in a computer shop so it isn't from lack of understanding. I enjoy talking to people. We aren't meant to be isolated the way people are becoming. It would explain some of the constant anger. Seems people are overly in love with their own opinions. Parents are even MORE out of touch with what their kids are doing or what they're dealing with not to mention with whom! It seems to take away opportunities for parents to be there with their kids to teach coping skills for what they may be dealing with on a social network. It may be cool to talk to someone on the other side of the world. As a way of life and dealing with peers, it takes the humanity out of the equation. That alone makes people bolder in their statement and cowardly in the consequences of what that say and do to others.
