Social Media - Not very social at all

Dear friends,

A couple of months ago I realized that my little baby was smiling at me and I was looking at my phone. Since then I’ve been reading and thinking a lot about the social isolation of “social media” and the online persona. I’ve been trying to limit my time in front of the screen – sometimes successfully, sometimes not.

Being online can help our businesses, organizations and keep up in close contact with our families. When does it become a distraction? When does it keep us away from people? When do we use it as an excuse to avoid the social complexities of life?

This video illustrates this issue well and I wanted to share it with you.
