Do you think you still spend the same amount of time connecting in the face-to-face world now that socializing is so easy online?
Oh hell no.
I think social networking / Instant Messaging / Technology has made a lot of people lazy about face-to-face socializing. (Myself included.)
Admittedly, it’s probably the cause of the worsening of my social anxiety.
On the other foot though, I jump at any face-to-face opportunity to be with my girlfriend because I don’t see all that often.
