Blinded by the screen we failed to see each other in the light. We believe technology improves communication. It does, however, it seems to degenerate the social fabric within the household. Why would we instant message the other when they are in the room? Why share a story with one while you can with 57? It may be many traditional attributes which lessen our bond, but our electronic escapes with technology may ensure its demise.
