Re: Has social media/texting negatively affected people's social skills in person?
I've actually commented on this alot, generally falling on deaf ears. It's practically impossible to hold a 5 minute conversation in person without being interrupted with some text/call etc. If not, you're talking, turn away for a couple seconds, begin to say something else and oh look at that, they have their face stuck to their blackberry checking their bleedin' facebook status. I usually give up at that point..
So yeah, with people taking pretty much every social media tool in priority over people they're directly talking to, talking in person has gone well downhill. Soon it'll be considered uncool.. we might as well just evolve out of talking.
I'll stick with my old flip phone till I'm forced to descend to the darkness.
So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...
Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.
