"They say that if we have more followers in our online, social media world, then we will be deemed more important. They say that the more people you know via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and the others, then the more influence you and I will have. They say that if we would connect more then we will be more connected. I say they are wrong. Who 'they' are is one issue. What 'they' say is another.

In fact, the more socially connected we are virtually online, the greater the risk of creating social dysfunction in our actual lives."
