What is written in this article reveals a worrying prospect for society. Do we want a society in which the people are ego-centric, have ‘identity crisis’ and fancy themselves as ‘mini celebrities’?
It said ‘Facebook’ and ‘Twitter’ are creating a ‘vain generation of self-obsessed people’. These two social networking sites cause people who use them often to have short attention span and a childlike desire for constant feedback on their lives.
Reflecting on what it said on the effect of repeated exposure … ‘a need for instant gratification and poor non-verbal skills, such as the ability to make eye contact during conversations’… it merits we give it attention!
Youths are the ones most caught up in these sites, they should read it and give it some thought. More than 750million people across the world use Facebook, this is a large number. More thoughts should be given on how much time is spent using these sites and if there is a need to see if other interests need to be developed.
