The Impact of technology, the Internet, and social media on relationship

Episode 66:  1-24-13 - In the old days, which was not that long a ago, the way we made new friends was natural. We met people, in person, as neighbors, at school or at work.

During this hour we are going to explore how technology, the Internet, and social media are changing the face of relationships.
