1 Family is not going to refuse to keep in contact if they are slightly inconvenienced by having to use different forms of communication. As for the more distant friends that will―it is more fun hear about what they have been up to if you bump into them again. Better to focus on the people around us as face-to-face interactions are the only interactions that can be fulfilling. You can't hug over a screen and jokes over text are hollow―no dirty looks or smirks! These flat projections literally and metaphorically lack depth.
