Facebook, MySpace, Twitter: Good or Bad for Kid’s Brain?
Some teachers and parents argues that these social networks are bad for their kid’s and students. Baroness Susan Greenfield, a teacher at Oxford University warns about the lifelong effects of too much social networking. Somethings he and other teacher from Oxford University say are, these train the brain to have poor attention span and these sites make kids prone to sensationalism. Others who argue that these social networks at good for kid’s brains say things such as, kids communicate and interact more than ever and social networking makes kids more peer-based. I find this information useful because the argument isn’t just a one sided argument there are both sides of the story there.
