Gizmodo's Mat Honan defends social media

If you are like me, most of your daily interactions with other people take place electronically. You probably interact with a greater number of distinct individuals via emails, tweets, Facebook updates, chats, and text message than you do verbally or in person. Unless you have a job that requires a great deal of public interaction like, say, a sales clerk at a busy department store.

Again, you need to be able to process those relationships quickly and efficiently. It's a basic tool for modern life. Yet that does not mean that your interactions in those mediums are any less genuine, or less soulful, even if they take place more rapidly.
