Almost everyone I know is a part of a some social network. The sole purpose of these networks is to either keep in touch, reconnect or meet new people. Its a faster way to communicate with your friends.
However, talking to my friends though a computer screen is easy and quick. But after a while, I get sick of it, just because it seem kinda shallow, like you can’t make the effort to actually meet with your friends and have a more real conversation. I much prefer meeting up for just 20 mins of a face to face convo to say hello and such. Its much more thoughtful and actually take a bit of effort.
Think of it like this, its your birthday, would you prefer a bunch of birthday wishes through the computer screen or is it more heartfelt when someone sends you a card or comes over to wish you a Happy Birthday?
Don’t get me wrong, I love the usage of fast communication its a good way to find your friends and send them a quick little message like when you do want hang out?
Don’t let social networks replace the real meaning of communication 🙂
Random. Period. Talk.
