How much is too much: Is social media keeping kids from just “talking”
Many teens these days are plugged into all forms of social media from Facebook to Twitter to Tumblr. Are all of these social media outlets keeping kids from actually being social? Kids are choosing to communicate about their lives and with their peers via the Internet versus having a phone conversation or sitting in a room and just talking.
Kids are attending parties just to have pictures to post to Facebook and Twitter and not fully enjoying the experience of just having a good time with their peers.
It may be time to cut down on the communication outlets that give kids the ability to pour their hearts out to hundreds of their closest “friends” and actually sit down with their true friends and their parents and talk about what’s going on in their lives.
What do you think about social media? Is there a such thing as too much?
