Ted Freitas Posted over 3 years ago Do you believe that Social Networks are actually hindering our social lives? I think social networking has a time and a place. I further believe there is a balance that has to be learned and also taught to others. As Shweta said, "'Hi' on someone's wall might be better than no phonecall for 1 year!" I think this is a great example of how Facebook and other social media types can be used in a positive way. I do feel though that there is a certain amount of introvertism that social sites can provide and sometimes gives us a false sense of security and hope. This is where "reality" should kick in and we should realize that there is a certain level of one-on-one interaction that is required to keep that healthy balance in life.
