As more and more technology is introduced along with ways to share interests, likes and pins I wonder will communication as we know it, die?
Will there be a new kind of bridge to cross?
Sure, on google+hangouts, skype and facetime you get some of that but not all. You can see if feet are tapping or thinking about a getaway. Are fingers texting someone else out of view? Then there is often a delay resulting in talking over each other and then attempting to recreate what you’ve said.
What we have now is good, grandmothers can read stories to their grandchildren even though they are in another state, we can call other countries for very little cost, we can ‘shop’ Pinterest with our best friends and share our finds. All of this is good and it’s still about crossing the bridge.
I think we are more cautious with our thoughts and feelings using some of these methods. We guard our written words from fear of being misunderstood or offending someone. I am guilty of that. I don’t cross a bridge because I don’t want to be ‘unfriended’ or ‘yelled at in all caps’ because I believe something.
Do you think we should dismiss the old ways of communicating? Are you willing to have fewer one on one visits, give up sending letters or thank you notes in the mail and forget about girlfriend shopping trips?
