Is Social Media Actually Making Us Less Connected

I found an interesting post on Mashable that has some interesting thoughts on Social Media.

 

Social Media has been touted as a way to stay more connected. But in the post, MIT professor Sherry Turkle talks of how it may be having the opposite effect. For instance, with Facebook posts and tweets we get to edit and re-edit our thoughts for the world to see. But is that fair? Are we really showing who we are if we're constantly polishing our words?

What do you think? Do you agree with Sherry or is she over analyzing?
