Parents and spouses are using the Internet and cell phones to create a 'new connectedness' that built in remote connections and shared Internet experiences. Today's married couples use a variety of tools-landline phones, cell phones, instant messaging, and email - to manage their schedules and stay connected with each other throughout the day. The adoption of cell phones and computers is a particularly important component of the way today's families stay in touch and coordinate their lives. Although families often go their separate ways during the day, they are connected by the Internet and, even more so, by cell phone. This new connectedness via cell phones and screen-sharing creates networked families.
