    I thought the whole point of these types is to make socializing more easy. Some may see it as less socially functional, but really they're talking to friends much more than they would without technology.

    Your conviction is wrong. Rather, our kids are exploring the virtual social world with an unlimited option. Moreover, they are making their friends around the world. They can also reach to every corner of the world for searching a friend. Nowadays, they are more intelligent: can face the virtual world's problems with guts: they are more aware about their responsibility and duty. The conventional social interaction has some limitations whereas, the virtual social interaction needs a less physical presence rather it is a great fun for our life. It is saved for our kids, if they use it wisely.

    Not so. They are still SOCIALIZING thats why you call those sites as social media websites. But too much of anything is not healthy. They could lose their connection to the real world. They can even be anti-social. Socializing with a real person is different from socializing via the Internet, it could hurt their self-esteem too and presence in public. So moderation is the key.
