Posted by M. C. Fox on December 1, 2012

There are several things to consider when socializing electronically.  Suppose you are protesting in Peoria or catching butterflies in Bangor but live in Omaha.  You proudly post your activities to your hundreds of “friends”.  One of those “friends” near Omaha realizes you aren’t going to be home tonight.  You could return to an empty house.
