"I hope I don't sound like a broken record, but the fact is communication by any means is very essential for human nature. No matter the medium, in so far as a message is carried to its intended destination, communication is fulfilled among participants. Facebook, Twitter etc are just tools created to enable communication rise to a new dimension that was not noticed or experienced decades ago. If toddlers, geriatrics and those in between join the bandwagon, so much the better. Social networks fill in the gaps where a voice or message may not have been heard and is necessary in this day and age where the rate of developments are outstanding"
 
 
From me:  I love HuffingtonPost.com because reading the reader's comments is so very interesting, giving one perspective from all facets of opinion, and one is free to post your own comment which may or may not be responded upon by another user.  It is communication too.  Each day I look forward to my edition sent to my inbox.
