Even the least "plugged in" among us realize the ways, both subtle and obvious, that technology is shaping our lives—relationships included. We text sentiments once written in love letters, we're more likely to run into exes on Facebook than in the grocery store, and webcams mean long-distance lovers can chat face to face without having to cross the globe.
While some may long for the simpler days of sock hops and soda shoppe romance—we at YourTango wonder what the old days would have been like with modern technology thrown into the mix.
Many of you met Alice and Timmy, the stars of "Facebook Manners and You," our Webby Award-nominated video about Facebook relationship dos and don'ts, in spring 2009. Now those crazy kids are back! This time they're documenting their relationship for the world to see with their "Electronic Picture Diaries." Using their MyPhones and OurTube, Alice and Timmy try to manage their old-fashioned love with modern technology.
"Facebook Manners and You" was a viral hit and Alice and Timmy's electronic picture diaries are posed to do the same. Each week, starting November 15, a new Alice and Timmy video will be released on YourTango's Facebook fan page.
