Now? Advances in technology have brought social tools like twitter and Facebook to get us connected. I’m hooked too.
But have we really advanced?
- The PlayStation allows my son to visit his older cousin online. They can spend endless hours playing shooting games together, talking smack to newbies, and killing people.
- The DS allows kids to sit right next to each other, play an entire game together, and never have to say a word to each other.
- Facebook allows me to see what’s going on in the lives of my old friends. I can stalk their pages, see what their kids look like, reminisce of the good old days, and never have to say a word to them.
- Twitter allows me to have casual conversation with a bunch of strangers, and since we’re limited to 140 characters, we always will be strangers.
