NPR did a spot this morning about how social networks such as facebook, myspace, linked in, meetup.com is impacting people's lives. For the under 30 crowd not having an account on facebook is equivalent to not having a phone number. Essentially you don't exist. Initiations to parties are now going out via facebook or myspace. After all, email is so 1990's. For some of my older friends (not to mentions John McCain) just browsing the web is a daunting task. How ironic that a technology that is supposed to bring people together is now dividing them primarily based on age.
