This was one of my favorite topics as an undergraduate. In the digital age we are so focused on being connected to our friends. We have access to all sorts of personal information about the people we know. Facebook is the perfect tool for all those cyber stalkers out there. Wanna know who your ex is into? You can find out just by poking around online. We can all feel like we know people no matter how far away they really are. But what about the people you actually know. I find myself calling my husband to talk about absolutely nothing. People text at work, at school, in meetings where ever they are. In our digital age it’s possible to be connected to someone you have never met and disconnected to the person you are sitting on the couch with. People argue that this phenomenon causes our youth to lack critical social skills. Another unforeseen consequence is the prevalence of cyber bulling. Our culture has changed and there is no stopping it. While facebook and twitter have done amazing things to organize people like the reach of nonprofits, the small business revolution, and even the Arab spring people are losing ground in their relationships that actually matter.
