  1. I think social media is a dolbue-edges sword. It’s great for bloggers and companies to connect with fans/readers/customers, but it has REALLY taken away from face to face connection on a local level. 80% of the time, my friends will just send me a FB message or email rather than calling me about a playdate. Sometimes, I feel like a playdate isn’t even necessary when “Suzie” has updated her status so many times, I already know what she’s done this week. ;)So…I love FB and Twitter for the way they’ve let me connect with readers and people I don’t get to see often, but I hate how it’s added yet another *thing* to the already-busy lives of my friends. Sometimes, I just want to sit and have coffee face to face, you know? ;)Sorry so long…just my thoughts. 🙂
