You may think you know someone because they are your friend, relative, neighbor, co-worker, or schoolmate, and you follow them on social media, but that's not who they are. Human beings are more than just a collection of pictures, thoughts, ideas, and opinions... more than videos and audio clips. We are flesh and blood, with a body, mind, and spirit. We are multidimensional with an energy and essence that can never be replaced by technology.
Don't get me wrong... technology is an amazing help to keep those connected who would not be otherwise, and it does serve many good purposes (e.g. serving as a vehicle for my message). Just remember to keep it real and try not to judge a person by their online identity. Recognize that social media is not one's reality.
