I heard the below quote this past weekend on NPR. It made me reflect on some of the feelings I've had lately with being so connected.
Social media is the "...Illusion of companionship without the demands of intimacy, we confuse postings and online sharing with authentic communication".
What do you think of this quote by Sherry Turkle? When on Facebook, Twitter, etc., are we trading in authentic communication and connection for superficial companionship? I look forward to reading your thoughts.
