I find it interesting that the more I use Facebook, the less my (adult) kids do - they've moved on to twitter and especially instagram.

Last year I discovered that an old boyfriend had died when I clicked over to his FB profile. It was beyond upsetting - but I would imagine this is how news will be shared, even by our generation, going forward.


As fast as we run, it feels like we can't keep up. Just when I thought I could tweet, now I've got to figure out instagram. But whatever the latest media, the fact remains--as you point out--that these sources of communication are the ones that people will use going forward, with our grown kids in the lead.
