BlogPageWelcome to my blog -- Grace's Rantings

I have made a study of human communication -- interpersonal as well as mass media.  I am intrigued by tremendous changes in human interaction in recent years.  The computer, Internet, smart phones and social media have dramatically changed the way we interact with each other.  Human discourse hasn't changed, but the mediums by which we communicate have..."and that has made all the difference".


Please share your thoughts and join in the discussion. I welcome your input and comments!


Can You Hear Me Know?

It's not news that mobile use has skyrocketed with no end in site.  Use of smart phones and tablets has risen 25% and 154% respectively in just the last year alone!  It is projected that by 2016 in the US alone, there will be 192 million smart phone users (50% of the population) and 133 million tablet users (41%) of the US population.  WOW.

But just how are we using our mobile devises? The number one activity is sending text messages, followed by taking photos:

I know I've used  my phone and tablet for all these things!  But I also use my smart phone to TALK ON THE PHONE!!  Am I becoming obsolete?

Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this website. It's
simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's difficult to get that "perfect balance" between usability and appearance. I must say you've done a very good job with this.
Addition ally, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Chrome.
Excell ent Blog!
