Karan Gupta Posted 6 months ago Sherry Turkle: Connected, but alone? Although I agree with the fact that a lot of teenagers are too engrossed in their devices, I feel like this is too much of a generalization. There are still a lot of teenagers who value conversation and only use texting for the most minute of details such as asking where someone is or other trivial matters. Texting has not yet replaced conversation. However, if it ever does, I agree with Mrs Turkle's analysis. We will change fundamentally in that we will no longer be able to communicate as powerfully and hence no longer be able to self reflect as effectively.
