It was so comforting to read that someone has done research on the topic of how the internet and social media is affecting/effecting the youth of today and projections of how it will effect their future. I agree that this society has become dependent on the internet and social media. “They have grown up in a world that has come to offer them instant access to nearly the entirety of human knowledge, and incredible opportunities to connect, create and collaborate," Anderson said (Buzzetto-More, 2012). "Some experts expressed concerns that trends are leading to a future in which most people become shallow consumers of information, endangering society" (Buzzetto-More, 2012). Being the parent of four teenagers, it was enlightening to hear(read) the findings. I've been discussing with my children for some time now about how damaging the effects of this technology can be on being able to focus and being patient instead of wanting "everything" in life at the click of a button.
