    Has Social Media Made Us Antisocial?

    in Entertainment

     


    No matter if its London, Washington DC, Cannes France or Nashville, Tennessee. Before the BC (befoer cellphones) era. I used to see people socializing more and more...Now everywhere I go I see People, listening to music, playing with their tablets, and using their smartphone...I rarely see people having random conversations with stangers anymore. Besides, what are we doing on those smartphones anyway? Much of the time...were checking emails, echanging texts, catching up with friends via facebook and news via Twitter. Have you ever found yourself or seen someone on their cell phone in the club, the restaurant or party? Why? So that's  brings me to my question at hand, has social media made us antisocial? Tune In.
