In reality I am apart of many religious groups in the area my family also provides meals for the people who visit the clinics on Fridays. In virtual reality I am a apart of mxit, face-book and twitter.

I use these social networks to keep in contact with friends and family and to post activities which I participate in. Facebook is a good social networking device. It allows you to create and maintain a profile, which can be used to tell other people more about you.

peoples obsessionbeen obsessed with something makes it your drug

it shows in relity people do become obsessed with material objects

Articles have shown that university students have withdrawal symptoms with the lack of technology but building a online status while you sitting alone is not important too me. God put people meet and talk to real people the body mind and soul needs the human touch. People also follow things because its popular and have no real personality. People have lost the true sense of humanity. Social networking also takes too much time which is generally a waste. Friends lists are filled with people who are NOT actual friends. It damages the real life socialization. People whom you’d rather not talk to finds and contacts you. Generally not helping relationships cause it may cause ridiculous jealousy. Face-to-face communication is the sort of communication that has been around for the longest time. This long time has taught us to understand the other being better and better. Guidance: All of us are looking for guidance to aid us in finding various types of information. Seeking and offering guidance based upon real experience lends to your credibility and trustworthiness no matter what the topic. Honesty: No one likes to be taken advantage of. Filtering through the vast amount of information to try to find truly valuable and hones pieces can be a daunting task for any subject matter. Face to face communication provides us with the opportunity to gauge the honesty of information through facial expression, body language and tone of voice. Mentoring: There’s no question that mentoring aids in the retention of employees. It also provides a great opportunity to communicate face to face and get to know others on a more personal level. Value: face to face communication can solidify or enhance the value proposition of any transaction. Technology is a wonderful and necessary communication tool but it is only of many and too often it is used in place of an opportunity to talk face to face. Keep in mind the importance and value of face to face communication and try to use it more often. It’s a great way to build and maintain relationships.
