Name: April T.

From: Illinois

Bio: Communication specialist, internet user

Area of Expertise: Author/Editor/Journalist

Topic: Community/Culture

Headline: Good for life, not for love.

Nutshell: Networks will create virtual social lives, and the divorce rate of the upcoming generations will skyrocket.


Individuals are already starting to ignore the importance of maintaining relationships sans the internet. The younger generations are raised with a high value of internet networking. My prediction is that this trend will help consumerism and trade but hurt the future of homelife.
