Is social media making us unsocial?

We’ve spoken a lot here about social media and whether it is making us more or less social, more or less connected.  And you know that I come down pretty squarely on the side of more connected.

So picture this, you’re on say the Metro North commuting into New York City.  Everyone on the train is glued to their cell phones: talking, texting, searching the web.  Antisocial?  TIME WARP!! (I know not that again!). Now project yourself back to 1963 on the same train.  Picture what you are doing.  Actually, you don’t need to picture it because there is a wonderful picture circulating on the web, which pretty much answers the question.
