Is Social Media Taking Over Family Time?

Modern technology is amazing. I mean think about it for a minute. At no other time in history have people been so connected with one another. Information travels from one person to the next at record breaking speed. 


When I was first married cell phones were the coolest thing. Not the kind we have now, the kind that were mounted on the inside of your vehicle.

Email was a neat way to contact friends and family to stay updated on the latest family news.
