No, I don’t mean that we need to make sure that we can make and keep connections with our laptops and desktops. Surely, there was no one that read that and is thinking that I really like my electronics so much that I can never let them go! If you read it as I intended, you understand what a powerful effect technology, computers specifically, have had on people staying connected with the people in their lives that they don’t see on a regular basis. To be more specific, computers help us to use tools like the internet and social networking to keep those connections as real as possible.
Another great way to use a computer to stay connected is to use one or more the many software programs to have actual face to face time with those who are not near you physically. It is amazing that computers and technology have come so far that if you want to actually see the person you are talking to on the other side of the country or world, you can do it simply by using a webcam and certain software on your computer.
And you don’t even have to have a laptop or desktop computer to do this anymore because so many smart phones have the technology built in or they make it easy for you to download it onto your phone. Considering many of these programs or applications are free to download and use, you could easily connect with someone without having to spend money on long distance charges as it would have been just a few years ago. Computers have enabled us to do many things and this has to be one of the best.
