What would you say if you were talking to the person face-to-face?

As I work through the Connect.ed modules, I am thinking about the affect that social media can have on communication and face-to-face friendships. 

It just reminded me of something that my Mum often says when having a conversation with someone on let’s say facebook or through text. 

“Would you say the same thing to the person if you were having the conversation with them face-to-face?”

It’s something worth thinking about, because I think it is so easy to hide behind the computer screen or behind the phone as you send a text message because you can’t physically see the person and the affect it has on them… But this doesn’t mean that it does not have the same affect.
