The new hubs

I've been one of the biggest proponents of the positive aspects of digital social networking. But I'm starting to wonder if we are bordering on an era where people are actually losing some of the drive to connect face to face, particularly college students. I don't think face-to-face interaction is in any danger of going away, but I'm wondering if making the effort of physically going to social hubs is becoming less appealing because of the new social opportunities of constant digital connection.

I'm particularly wondering about campus ministry student centers and their value as "always open" social worlds.

But I may be attributing the wrong causes to the symptoms. Don't know.
