I think that this, "Age of Mass Communication," is both good and bad.
People need companionship. We are social creatures. We go crazy without interaction with other members of our species. Also, the fact that "global communication" is binging us closer to one another as a species is something that cannot be ignored.
However, I think that it can become an unhealthy habit. If you spend all day "socializing" online and ignore the real world outside it can be very detrimental not only to your "actual" social life, but your health as well.
It also annoys the living shit outta me when someone is texting the entire time I'm with them. If you're hanging out with your friends, don't spend the whole time on your phone... it's just plain rude.
