Tech Thursday: What Would Nana Say?
A friend of mine recently posted an op-ed piece on her facebook wall titled: Why Social Media is Bringing Back Our Grandparents’ Values.
I found it quite compelling. The idea is that we are once again building communities, much like our grandparents’ generation did. Only now, we’re using technology to do it. And we’re not just building communities, but using technology to strengthen family bonds as well.
So today’s technology question is this: Do you see social media distracting you from connecting with your family or enhancing it? And if you do find it enhances it, how?
And one more question to ponder (if you’re so inclined)…what about our parents? Did community building skip a generation?
Technology Thursday is a joint project of Classic Play! and (cool) progeny. Each week, both blogs will be taking on a family-technology-related issue. We invite you to join the conversation!
