  1. What are some of the pros and cons to the widespread acceptance of communication through technology (don’t forget, you’re taking an online course right now)?
  2. Consider your social media relationships. Does texting, tweeting, and other social media strengthen our relationships with others, or does it create fake relationships? Do the friends you have online meet your needs?
