Facebook, MySpace and Twitter are just some social networking websites most of us visit every day. The world has indeed become a smaller place as it is getting easier for us to communicate and connect with people from across the globe. The convenience of checking up on what your friends are doing with the click of a button has in some cases replaced a simple phone call. Names have been replaced with handles or avatars and it all has become very impersonal. This led me to ask, has social networking websites driven as further away from each other instead of bringing us closer?
