This day and age we have so much technology and social media thrown in our faces. 10 years ago we would have never known what a 'Tweet' was, how you could 'follow' someone with out LITERALLY following them or that we could 'like' a million things in one day. When you watch even a news cast these days they say: "like me on facebook, follow me on Twitter, circle me on Google Plus, follow me on Instagram.." There are a ton of new social media sites out there! And more are coming out everyday! Such as SnapChat, Glide and Tango... Face to face talking is getting more popular with the younger crowd! 

But how does ALL this effect our family lives, our relationships and who we really consider "friends"? Our communication is slowly getting more impersonal. With messaging, emails, pokes, tweets, posts and pictures, no one writes letters anymore... Most people would rather text you than call you and going to visit neighbors? HA! Thing of the past... Find out what they are up to on Social Media... 

Let's open up a great discussion on how we can get REAL relationships back! Not by cutting out Social Media all together, but by CONTROLLING it!
