Is Social Media Making Us Not So Social?

It is a complaint from many ‘old skool’ people: social media makes that people are only looking at their screens, they are not in a ‘normal conversation’ anymore. You are hearing these remarks more and more often, and if you look around you, you will indeed see many people staring at their phones. But is it true? Is Social Media really making us less social? What do you think?

    Hi Bas Van Den Beld,
    Thanks for sharing this great post!
    This is really a debatable topic that “are social sites really making us social?”
    People are getting so much social network dependent ,that their real social life is really getting hampered.
    Thanks again
    Regards

Nice job, you found it!

Now, go try out the 12th one:

Use Google Translate to bypass a paywall...

Ran into a page you can't read because it is blocked or paywalled? Here's a quick trick (doesn't always work, but often does!):

Type the page into Google translate (replace the example with the page you want):

http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=ja&tl=en&u=http://example.com/

How about that!?
