    One needs to learn (and keep) the proper balance between the social
    media, and what could be true benefits of staying in touch, and real
    life where relationships can be deeper and more sustained...

    While my Mom and I (and some other relatives) are on Facebook, I
    still call her several times a day. And, if her computer gets ornery,
    or she has a question, she calls "her computer guru" (me) to get it
    fixed. Most times, I can go in remotely...but some days, I have to be there.

    That sounds like it's being kept in balance... :)

    But, it has helped us keep up with other members of the family.
    However, my brother is like my late father...he HATES computers, and
    doubt he ever would get on Facebook or other social media.

    Most of my family is on Facebook, except me... but they can pick up the
    phone and call me, or send me email... I don't hate computers, but I
    see no need to use up what little time I don't have with yet one more
    time consumer... I have a hard enough time staying current just with my
    email and my Fido (etc) mail... :)
