Communication breakdown

People may be more connected than ever before because of the internet and social media, but we are not communicating as well as we used to.

Using a keyboard results in either a shallow message or one that can easily be misinterpreted or completely misunderstood.

Using good old one on one in person conversation, and yes even an old fashioned phone call allows for accuracy, meaning, depth and clarity in a message.

The problem is that it takes more time to chat in person than it does to text, tweet, like, or post a comment. By sacrificing time to meet, for the convenience of speed and bulk messaging, we often cause others to wonder what we really said. Life is crazy enough without adding more confusion to it.
