In this age of multimedia, msn, sms, mms more and more people are communicating and meeting with eachother without seeing eachother. The benifits are obvious, the world is getting smaller and information is free to be shared. But what are the negitave effects. The youth of today communicate, play and interact in this virtual world. They miss learning valuable interaction skills. Illness due to lack of physical activity. I mean dang their thumbs are deforming from all that messaging. Is the world getting smaller but the distance between us greater?
