Comment of the Week

“Never got in to the whole Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter thing. The internet is, for me, a tool to research and learn about things that interest me. I’ve seen nothing to change my mind. For the last decade what I’ve seen and heard about the goings on on social media makes me think it drives people further apart rather than bringing them together. Some of that is probably driven by the lack of cues, such as tone of voice and facial micro-expressions, that text communication lacks.”

KLL makes an interesting point about the lack of cues.
