Neilson Online report finds that social networking is up 83% in the U.S. since last year. WOW. Fad? I don't think so. Moms and Dads don't worry if you kid drops his/her bag on the floor runs to the computer and starts chatting, texting, talking, gaming and webcaming all at the same time. It's normal. Teachers maybe try even posting something on Facebook during class to get your students to pay attention. And please post all assignments online - throw us a bone! And corporate american, please stop with the hour long face-to-face pointless meetings - use skype or soon google wave to communicate and connect. I need technology in my life.
The younger generation and even some of them 'older' ones are addicted to social networking statistically speaking, so stop being stubborn and start reworking your curriculums, office expectations/collaboration, and after school activities for us social networkers. Yes, we have ARRIVED and are here to STAY!
