Will technology and social networking sites create generations of socially inept people?
I hardly see my neighbors leaving their houses, even in nice weather here. Kids, teens, used to have places to hang out, now it's simply on the Internet, not the same as real socialization. I think a generation of developmentally delayed social awareness is probably true.
People will always have the need to socialise and some are better at it than others. Social networking and the net is just a part of socialising. With teens of my own I see how much they organise their social life via facebook, etc so I guess technology adds another dimension to socialising.
it already is. it is also creating a place for cowards and the ignorant to feel secure in their stupidity.
