I left Miami 30 years ago for college. My high school reunion was last weekend, but just couldn't make it back .... actually, I never made it back for one. Now there's a Facebook group for my high school class.
My daughter has been actively in a Facebook group for her upcoming college since accepting admittance; so for many months she's been communicating with many she'll spend the next 4 years with.
I guess I can now Facebook/communicate with those I spent 4 years with ... more than 30 years ago. Back to the future?
Social media completely merges many aspects of our lives in very central and public ways ... Is this why we do it, or why we don't?
