    I don’t think social media is a fad, but I am also aware of the risks that come along with it.

    In my opinion, the quantity of information that is exchanged has definitely increased, but I am not so sure the quality has kept up with that pace.

    Personal interaction, writing letters or just picking up the phone are means of communication that are utilized less every day. Ask any teenager to write a letter, instead of a text message and you will soon be overwhelmed with all the mistakes made in grammar and spelling.

    The key with everything new and “revolutionary” is to be aware of the risks as well as the advantages and use and implement it accordingly.
