I think it does to some extent. We tend to be able to hold up in our homes, not really having to meet face to face with people. We tend to believe words on a screen and with no body language with the conversation, it is harder to judge if the words are sincere. I think many young people are losing the art of socialization by only using electronic media. Plus, it is easier to hate faceless enemies, i.e bully people on the Internet. Great question!
