Upon reading the article Social Networking, I thought about all the ways we are able to communicate with each other, but somehow we still find ourselves not communicating enough. I work for a high school that places all homework assignments, grades, important updates, etc. on the web and I still have students tell me that they did not know what they were suppose to do for their homework or what their grade is in a specific class. The social networking systems as stated in the article are becoming "an evolution in human social interaction" My concern with that statement is "are we really interacting with each other" All these systems do not show the facial expressions , tone of voice, mannerism, etc. that truly show what another is feeling or portraying. I understand there is a great purpose to all this social networking, but it can have it's negative points, also.
