Eighty percent of Americans use the Internet; cell phone usage is higher. But what do we do with our cell phones? More and more we text rather than talk.
Teenagers average 50 text messages a day. But texting is one way of communicating. We get our message out but we donít have to deal with the other person, as in a conversation. Does this make us less able to handle give and take? Does this help to explain the political polarization that we see this year?
What do you think?
