Due to Facebook popularity among the younger children; are there any consequences with letting them be on social sites?
Facebook is it really helping us get closer to far away friends and family or is it encouraging kids to spend too much time on the internet?
Years ago there was only what was known as Myspace the Grandfather of Social Networking. After Myspace I believe it was Facebook that made its big debut as the hot shot social site. Soon after Twitter was flapping its wings tweeting away to fall intot the competition. Myspace began to fall behind and some people still use it as a form of online gaming or chating with friends.
I took a survey at 10 different elementary, middle and High schools to gather information about something i’ve been wandering about which some say it but I would rather have the facts. So in total I got information from 30 different schools and the number of reply’s was near a shear two thousand replies.
What information taken and recieved may shock you and disturb you.
The information that I asked in the survey/poll was:
1. Do you have access to a personal computer?
2. How many hours a week do you spend on the internet?
3. What do you do while on the internet?
the results where that follows:
Students with personal computers that have access to them toppled an astounding 1,254. The average number of hours on the internet reached a high of 14 hours a week. Finally Majority of the time spent on the internet was to either shop online or Chat with friends on facebook.
Do you believe the Internet diminishes the intelligence of our youth?Read more in Social Networks
In my sole opinon of everything I’ve seen yes. What happened to going outside riding your bike and things like this. Maybe this is only in my area that kids are like this, but who’s to say it is not happening somewhere else. Too much technology is being put into childrens hands when it should be replaced with a book.
