Lab #12

We agree that social networking sites, such as Facebook, allow you to keep in touch with old friends and friends who live far from you. It is often more convienient to use the internet rather than to seek out an individual via phone or in person, but it can also be used as an excuse to avoid confrontation or make plans. However, we also agree with this article in that such sites prevent real life interactions. This habit of social networking may prevent the development of social skills in younger generations, as they rely on the internet to express themselves. Students who will soon be in highschool now rely on Facebook and "Friend Requests" to make friends, though it can be a positive way to make friends in a new location, such as college.
