Social Networking has really taken off in the online world, but is this having a significant change in the way we behave?
The Telegraph had an interesting article by Andrew Keen which stated that, Baroness Susan Greenfield – Oxford Professor of neuroscience and the Director of the Royal Institute- says “electronic media, especially social networking sites, are replacing children’s deep cognitive skills with short-term sensory ones, thereby trivializing their notion of real friendship and community.” This shows that social networking sites are possibly causing some people trouble when they try to understand friendships or some might not know how to interact with someone face to face. Also there have been some cases of cyber bullying via sites like Facebook and Twitter which can have a very serious impact on peoples lives.
However is this an extreme perspective on social networking, as you could argue that Facebook, for example, is allowing people from every area of the world to connect to each other in ways that was never possible a few years ago. You could say that today’s generation has the greatest interaction than any other previous generations. It also has benefits such as to keep in touch with family and friends that you don’t see very much, rather than have a huge phone bill!
So has interaction actually improved via social networking? It has positives and negatives which most things in life does.
