Reality check

Posted by putsimply on 9th September 2009

You know my views on how people can become so obsessed with social networking sites that they  forget to communicate in the usual ways, such as picking up a phone. Well, two girls, 10 and 12,  stuck in a storm drain in Australia chose to update their Facebook sites with the information rather than contacting the police or their family to rescue them. Fortunately a more responsible friend saw it, took it seriously and called the police. They could have been stuck there for a long time if no one bothered to check their profiles.

Are we bringing up a generation who do not know how to communicate in a ‘normal’ manner?  Or, maybe I am the one that is wrong and sideways communication is the new ‘norm’.
