Today we live in a world where we often can communicate in so many ways it is almost dizzying to think about. We have cell phones, and text messaging, and Skype, and Facebook. Well the list goes on and on.
I would wager that today you would have to think pretty hard to find one of your friends that didn’t have a cell phone or internet access. It seems funny to think that just ten or fifteen years ago such things were a novelty that were utilized only by the wealthy.
Unfortunately, much like a lot of our technological progress, the framework of etiquette to use these devices has lapsed far behind the devices we covet so much. Our addiction to these communication methods can become so compelling as to put ourselves in danger as we type text messages to our friends while trying to drive 2 ton vehicles across the urban landscape.
So with that in mind, I am curious what some of your biggest communication frustrations are. Please take a moment and take part in this short poll, and I will share my findings in a future post.
