May 22, 2010
Lately I've given some thought to un-facing on Facebook. A friend commented that it was becoming too much, and those who matter to her have her digits. I'm beginning to realize that the art of face to face or phone-to-phone contact has become a decreased commodity in today's culture. Face to face contact is gone, taking with it social skills and a part of life that once was an event to look forward to: going somewhere to meet with a friend - to talk about whatever pops in mind, or crosses before our faces. The sound of laughter and expression - those spur of the moment comments gone with the computer age. Cyber-space has become the twenty-first century's new suit of armor. Arguing and the chance to come to an understanding hidden behind a keyboard and monitor. It's sort of sad and crippling to society.
