Tip of the Day: Let Yourself be Seen and Heard

We’re being asked to isolate and to “social distance”, but with that comes a cost: a loss of connection with the people around us.

Now is the time to use, or learn to use, the technologies available to connect with others via audio and especially via video. Your family and your friends need to *see* and hear you. If you’re someone that doesn’t like your picture taken, or doesn’t like the sound of your own recorded voice, please get over that.

Let’s use technology to help the people stay connected with one-another and with you.
