Wonderful post! I finally get it that I have to get out of the office and meet people. That's my plan and I am sticking to it. I never liked using the phone, and I still do not fully understand all the 'socials' - even though I am playing that game.

That little girl is so cute and the fact that the dog and cat are getting along and playing with her is amuzing if not amazing.

Facebook has gotten so unsocial in the past few years sometimes I don't even want to go it because people discuss the dumbest things that others shouldn't even know about.

No doubt that humans need "social", and primarily the face to face kind. The computer or mobile device screen does, help, though, when years and miles separate you. I must admit to loving the reconnecting I've done on Facebook with my grade school friends. But when the screen becomes a complete substitute for in-person interaction, that, my friend, is dangerous!

Caren Gittleman

this was BEYOND power packed and soooooooo true! We all fall victim to thinking that sitting behind a computer screen, sharing, liking, etc etc is "social", when in fact, it isn't as you so wonderfully stated above!

I make sure I get out and attend at least obe face to face meeting a week or meet a friend for coffee or take a class. I need to get out from behind the computer screen and see people in real life.

When I first came to FB, it was very social. I was able to catch up with old friends, high school friends, we planned a reunion via FB (that I missed). But today, it's all about connecting, not being social.

I have 10 friendship requests from strangers that have gone unanswered on Facebook, because I don't know these people and instead of first saying "oh cool, a new friend," I ask "what does this person think I can do for them?"

That's not social.
