The Culture of Like

I have a new post today over at Ref21. It is a revamp version of an article I wrote for Housewife Theologian about 2 1/2 years ago. You'll see from the introduction why I am constantly returning to this subject. [caption id="attachment_2503" align="alignright" width="240"]Easier times. Easier times.[/caption] I have a fourteen-year-old daughter with a cell phone. I remember back in the day, I would get in trouble for talking too long on my see-through, wired, Conair Phone. But now I join all the other parents navigating through unchartered territory when it comes to their child and social networking. These days, phones are barely used for talking. Calling seems to be a last resort for my daughter, who prefers to text, take pictures, cruise social media, and hit the like button. I could write about my struggles in choosing which sites I let my kids join and which I don't, but I want to discuss the culture of like that we live in even as adults. I'd love for you to read the rest of the article here. Comments are closed o Ref21, but I invite you to come back and share your thoughts in my comments section.
