S

In a super interesting, and readable article, Rob Howard hits the nail on the head when he points out what BREAKING NEWS is really all about!  He opens with:

Not long ago, Americans woke up with the worst social media hangover in the history of civilization. Even if you hadn’t jumped into the fray yourself, you probably saw posts like these:

  • “If you can’t handle the truth, unfriend me.”
  • “Please unfriend me now if you don’t like what I believe.”
  • “I will still love you, but unfriend me if you need to.”

And, if you’re being honest, you probably took a few of those friends up on their challenge. [End Quote]

We’re discovering that the internet and ubiquitous media, 24/7 is rearranging our lives, making us angry and driving us apart.

I think everyone should read this article.
