    Are social networking sites taking away from the value of a relationship ?

    It seems as if people are talking less to each other and looking towards the web more.

    That would be a communications issue, not a value problem. How you value a relationship is a state of mind. How does that person influence you? Does what they say matter? How valuable are they to me? How valuable am I to them? Those don't have to do with Facebook, but with the strength of the relationship itself. And often Facebook strengthens relationships. You understand their beliefs and attention span by what they post or their comments.

    For me personally, it did take the value away from some of my real life relationships.  Not only because of the lack of face-to-face interaction but for several other reasons as well including family members becoming aggressive or untruthful toward me online.

      I agree with you about the face to face.

    I think it is changing the nature of relationships rather than taking away from the value of relationships. To us, by that I mean those who were born and raised without it, it would seem that we are losing the value of relationships because we didn't build relationships this way and we see the old ways as better for this kind of thing. With the new generations and those raised with social networking being a fact of life they are adapting to it and building relationships through the social media as if this were the natural way to do it.

    So the answer to your question is 'Yes' and 'No' - or more properly - 'it depends'

      I must agree, it does differ between generations.

      Like the telephone. Showing my age here but when I was growing up not everyone had a telephone, they were seen as nice but not needed. Now everyone has a couple of phones usually, a land line and a cell phone.
