Schools.com Spokeswoman Michelle LaFrance said:
It is fascinating to see people gravitate toward social media as an accepted form of communication. The time we spend connecting via mobile devices, while not face-to-face, allows us to expand our social interaction because they can be used anytime, anywhere.
Regardless of how people connect, they can use social media as a way to maintain real-life friendships. The online world allows them to share good news, plan events with friends, and stay in touch.
