As younger generations pick up the technology quickly, I think the value of learning social and emotional skills will increase. As time goes by instead of social media being a place where you can post your opinions anonymously (and sometimes quite cruelly and untactful), what you say on social media will have direct ramifications in our daily lives, because we'll leave virtual footprints of what we think/feel/do. We'll use social media more like a pair of glasses to increase what we can see and influence. Therefore, as our profiles become visible to everyone what we say/do on social networking sites should reflect our values we hold dear, and the good behavior we instill in our kids as they grow up. In an ideal world as we use collaborative social media platforms like Google+, they should help us evolve not become more insular, self-centered, egotistical, or narcissistic. It will bring a whole new level to being able to identify how emotionally, mentally, and spiritually mature people are in their interactions with all people.
