Below are some thoughts from a friend (who will at present remain unnamed until I can procure her permission to credit her publicly):

Keeping in touch gives us protection from the meanness of life. We are driven to keep in touch because we're human and it's one of the nice things we do. It provides us with ties to others in the clan so that when we scream for help, someone responds. It gives us a break in the tedium and sometimes imparts joy. We learn from another's experiences, but this is extremely rare as evidenced by the dumb things people do after being told "don't do that."
