CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -- All of that family you saw over the holidays - what are the odds you won't see them again until the NEXT holiday season?
Many of you have resolved to stay in touch in 20-10 - and now it's easier to do than ever.
"Email is okay but it's one way," says former White House Chief Information Officer and White House Cyber Security Expert Theresa Payton. "You have to hope it doesn't get caught in spam and them wait for them to respond. There are so many more interactive live ways people can stay in touch."
