It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that social media has practically revolutionized the way people communicate with one another. What began with simple rotary dial telephones has now evolved into something of an Internet insurrection.

You see, I know about addiction – not because I’ve ever been high on angel dust or strung out on my mother’s signature corn casserole. No, I know about dependence and compulsion because just last month I found myself with an obsession of sizeable proportions – Facebook.

When it comes to effective communication there is nothing worse than being disconnected. In this day and age, most businesses and corporations utilize more than mere telephones to stay in contact with employees and executives.
