The Demerits of Social Networking.

I'm a strong advocate for social networking in keeping connected with people that I otherwise would have completely lost touch with.

But this piece I read, I'll quote because I think more and more, and I think it is very easy to cut off emotional ties with the world when there are only micro-interactions with the world. It's not a substitute.

"Unplug to stop the insanity.

Seek face-to-face interaction.

Be a participant rather than a winner.

Risk rejection.

Smile at a stranger.

Invite people over.

Give more, get less.

Make something real happen."
