I am 100% addicted to social media. I check my Instagram account at least 8 times per day. Twitter maybe 5 and email… let's not go there. While this addiction is easy to offer a friendly chuckle of understanding, it's also a not-so-friendly wedge between families, spouses, and friends.
There is nothing more disrespectful than someone who is so busy checking their phone, they forget about those right in front of them. It's the equivalent of them saying, “You're not as valuable as these other people.”
I stumbled across this incredible Coca Cola commercial communicating this dilemma with a beautiful balance of emotion, class, and humor. Everyone should watch this. Prepare to smile.
