What’s the story, morning glory?

Neil Kramer asks: “Does anyone really think social media does a better job in creating real communication between individuals?”

A better job than what, you ask? Well, for one thing, this.

    It depends on who you’re communicating with. My mom can barely use e-mail and my dad hates social media with the intensity of a thousand fiery suns so I talk to them via phone.

    Although, similar to what sya said, it depends on who is on the other end. These days, the vast majority of my phone calls (other than weekly calls from family) is someone wanting me to do something for them (and not fun things either….never anything fun) so I’ve become kind of phone-averse in recent years.

    OTOH, I do find with family there’s really no replacement for actually hearing the person’s voice. (I know, I know: skype or VOIP, but my family has neither)

    We just recently added texting to our phone plan. As I’ve admitted before I’m no teenager anymore but I have taken to text messaging like a kid with the latest hot new toy that everyone wants. I now text members of my family more often than I ever talked to them on the phone. Texting is simply more polite. When you call someone you never know what you might be interrupting.
