We are not really connected to each other either, experiencing real human interaction and spontaneity. You can send me an email from the other side of the world and I might read it within minutes. I can follow and memorise your every tweet without us ever experiencing each other's smiles in real life. It may be communication, but of what quality is it?
Our dependency on email is impacting our working lives, even causing us to question whether we have lost the art of effective communication. Yet at the same time, we see a new generation of employees thriving through their mastery of the more modern world of social networks - where communication is everything.
