Of course it has. We used to refer sarcastically to people with nothing to say as twittering nincompoops. Now twittering is acceptable behaviour. Perfect for those that can't deal with more than one sentence at time.

Yeah, I have a few friends now, you can go out, and almost every 5 seconds they will put their eyes back on their disgusting phones. People appear to be robotic now. Almost emotionless, all fixated on text messaging and their precious iphones. Oh well.

Hmm.

I'm on Facebook, and back in the day I had a relatively inactive "Xanga" account.

Oddly enough, to the best of my knowledge, I have yet to transform into an "empty waste of air." I'll tell my wife to stay on alert, though.

is not the social media itself i think that affected negatively the social skills but the fact that we can have access to it so easily through the mobile phones. the thing is many of us forget sometimes that we can stop checking twitter facebook or emails while we are meeting our friends. i mean your friends are there. is ridiculous sometimes how people engage in internet interaction while being in the same room. if you can use social media everywhere everytime doesn't mean you should. live life more. instead of tweeting/put on facebook a photo of a beautiful sunset try to enjoy it and leave the text/status composing later.
