Whatever happened to the art of face to face conversation?


Gone are the days of live, "in the same room" personal interaction. Technology has made "real" conversations rare. Texting, email, Skype, social media and the like have replaced families sitting around the dinner table and enjoying one another. At restaurants, train and bus stations, airports and bustops and just walking down the street, people are looking at their cell phones, iPads and laptops. The silence is erie.

    Where I live they are trying to bring back "cursive" hand writing which has all but been encouraged in our schools. Students are now learning to write their signatures for later use in their life when signing documents or to sign their paychecks.

    Hugs, kisses, handshakes, holding hands and the like cannot be done over a device....it is true that technology connects people over a screen but you simply cannot get that real genuine personal interaction by skyping.

    Chloe Davis Smith it's the same as if you were back in day when we talked on land phones. The concern is being so caught up with our electronic devices that we cannot even interact with the person(s) sitting right next to us or in the same room/area
