Does social networking improve or destroy your social life?


While the use of such sites as Facebook and Twitter make it easier for us to get in touch with people, we are now spending a lot more time staring at little screens instead of interacting with the real world around us. Do you feel your social life is better or worse for it?

    Good answer - I can tell you have really thought about this issue. There is a dangerous side to social networking, and I am worried about the younder generation too, but who would want to be without it now we have it!

    Hi travmaj,

    you're right, it's not going to go away. I guess it's something we all have to learn to live with, and try to use it only for the positive things.

    it sounds like you have got the right balance, Sherry. Social media can be a useful tool, and so long as we resist the temptation to give it too much power over our lives it shouldn't cause any problems.

    Oh dear, it sounds like you've had some bad experiences. It certainly pays to be very selective about who you let into your life through sites such as Facebook. Wishing you better luck in the future :)

    Same here. Met my wife through the Internet, and we've been together for almost 8 years, married 6 1/2.

    I feel that a lot of people do let social media take over their lives a little too much. I am guilty of it myself! We have to make a conscious effort not to give it too much power. :)

    Hi Kayamack, thanks for your answer. There is a difference between networking for pleasure and networking for business. and I try to keep those elements separate. It is certainly a very useful tool as an online writer :)
