The sad reality of these social media sites is that they tend to separate people rather than bring them closer. True your grandmother can see your graduation pictures and your sister in law can share her recipe for apple pie, but for the most part social media sites have done nothing to bring people closer. Yes they band some people towards common causes, they help in a very very minute way to bring to light social injustices and the likes, expose some things, but the truth is they effect little change. The big winner is Facebook itself, the investors and the advertisers. Spend the time you waste logging your life and your problems and talk to your kids instead, face to face. Hop in the car and drive the six hours or a day to see your loved ones. Call them and chat face to face on skype or better yet go see them, give them a hug and kiss them. If you are a stamp collector, antique dealer then great, Facebook is the best thing since sliced bread. These friends you boast off you have, are they really friends? You think posting the same motivational or de-motivational images over and over again or a poem you saw is that being social? Its a total waste of time. Go touch someones life for real, go spend time with someone, call them, touch them for real, instead of hiding behind the wall.
