Social media is not without its benefits, but lately it has been taking a toll on me. I often call it synthetic connectivity because most of it is conducted without any actual connectivity at all. I actually think it’s injurious to a society and culture in terms of cultivating social skills to forget how to interact with each other person-to-person. Therefore, I encourage you this week to make an effort to actually go to a location and see some friends. Talk to them, do something fun, and (gasp) unplug for a little while. You’ll be glad you did.
