Although we are apart, we can always stay in touch
We've heard about people saying that mobile technologies and social media make people more isolated. I think otherwise. People are apart because they wanted to do more. In today's global converging world, people travel much further and achieve more on a global scale. Internet, mobile and social media helps us to stay in touch with each other even we are far apart.
Without social media I would have found so many high school classmates after 30 years not being in touch. I was able to teach my 60+ years old sister to use smart phone and whatsapp so that she can shoot and share video of my mom, who's 96 years old, to my family in Hong Kong.
The world is a warmer place because of technologies. Whether it's good or evil is only dependent on who's using it.
