Everywhere you look, you see it. In a movie theater, a restaurant, on a sidewalk, in a car, people everywhere tapping away on their smartphones, totally engrossed in the gadget. Seriously, how many times have you seen someone walk into a mailbox, another person or a light pole, walk across the street without lifting their head, or even worse try to drive while texting. Eh gads! Our lives now revolve around and through our electronic connection to the world.

As humans, we are compelled to share, socialize and gather together. Technology has opened a new window for this sharing, allowing us to reach out to more people in more locations than ever before. It's not uncommon to now have friends across the globe with whom we regularly communicate, but have never actually met. We can share experiences, stories, challenges and hopefully gain positive feedback and better insight into ourselves and our world.

While this new avenue for connecting began with our PCs and laptops, it has definitely taken off with the portability of mobile technology. We now live in an "always on" society, instantly updating our status, checking email, sharing photos, or catching up with friends. Software developers have provided a vast array of options for connecting to our networks. In this slideshow, we have pulled together a variety of social apps that help keep you connected with friends, coworkers and the world.
