What Are You Doing Over There?

I believe that the growth of the internet and social media has been extremely detrimental to our ability to be fully present. Through Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and all other things alike we are able to be physically in one place and mentally submerged in another by simply scrolling down a timeline of some sort. All in all this isn't such a bad thing. I mean the internet gives us the ability to always be connected to people, places and things no matter the distance that separates us. But through my experiences I know that this kind of mental teleportation has crippled our capability to "Be Here."
