Is Social Media Anti-Social? Update.

I came across this article, Why Real World Socializing Is The Next Big Thing In Social Media, addressing the same concerns in my posting. Here are a few quotes from the article that should encourage your readership.
“Facebook doesn’t understand old school, face-to-face social interaction, and it never will because the concept goes against the company’s bottom line.”
“Ultimately, real-world socializing will win the day. Humans are social creatures hard-wired for interpersonal contact and companionship. It’s time to bridge the gap between our online and offline lives and make social networking actually social. Real life: Accept no substitutes.”
Remember, you are the product for Facebook. They make billions of dollars, selling your information. I predict the social pendulum will start to swing soon.
