    So glad you had a show on the effects of social media on people in general. I think it has gone way too far and enough is enough. I agree with your guest Vincent about what is happening to the minds of kids, young adults–actually all of us. The inability to forget proper grammar, knowing how others REALLY feel an impossibility with the use of the social media! That alone in itself should be enough to have it slowed down or just stop. That hastag stuff is ridiculous!!!!! lol what the heck is that?! I know, but other abbreviations I do not know. Great show and I hope it opened the minds of most human beings!!
