Teens aren’t abandoning “social” - they’re just using the word correctly | mediated learning & digital media for professionals | Scoop.it

[Excerpt] "Kids aren’t leaving social networks. They’re redefining the word “social.” Rather, they’re actually using the word with the intent of its original meaning: making contact with other human beings. Communicating. Back-and-forth, fairly immediate dialogue. Most of it digitally. But most of it with the intent of a conversation where two (or more) people are exchanging information and emotion. Not posting it. Exchanging it. That's social."
