Answer: Electronic communication by use of the various hand- held devices are very efficient in saving time and speeding communication. However being effective requires the development and maintaining of personal relationships. Why? Because electronic communication is not as effective as face to face communication. I believe that for many, the more they are connected (electronically) the more they are isolated (from other people). Also, because electronic communication does not include your tone of voice or body language it is subject to negative interpretation even though it may not be intended.
Point: You might have to disconnect in order to connect.
