According to some researchers, the use of the internet and social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, and other similar-functioning sites has grown exponentially. Some researchers think that the more often people use this new type of communication, the more likely it is that people will lose the ability to have quality face-to-face communication; however, some people argue that this hypothesis is not true. What I will try to prove is if social media really has affected our face-to-face interactions. At first, I was skeptical about this research; however, now I understand more about the subject. Personally, I believe that the problem does not originate with or exist only because of social media (social media is a communication tool); instead, I believe it’s a combination between the tool, the people who use it and the way in which it is used.

This is an important question, one that often gets glossed over in a simplistic way. Your take is more thoughtful.

Social media may have revolutionized communication, but it threatens our ability to communicate. Without the benefit of body language, we are operating with a major deficit.

Facebook Complicates Family Estrangements

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media can add to the pain of family estrangements because they provide a peek into private lives and a reminder of what has been lost.

Often when we reflect on the ways in which social media influences our social relationships, we seemingly find examples of ways it has improved them for the better. This article takes a shockingly different approach and investigates the impairment that social media causes families and how it separates them more than unites them. In a heartwrenching interview within this NYTimes article, relatives give accounts of very pivotal and life changing moments in their children, siblings etc. that they were privvy through discoveries on social media platforms. “You’re watching other people enjoying your daughter and the grandchild you’re supposed to have, and you’re left out in the cold,” Mary said. “I have to watch pictures of my grandson — that I didn’t get — on my daughter’s sister-in-law’s page” (NYT). Could you imagine finding out your son or daughter is expecting their first child by way of Facebook or Twitter?  "Facebook Complicates Family Estrangements" gives a separate outlook on the ways in which we drive people away from us using social media tools like Facebook (whose premise is about uniting people worldwide).
