Is the Facebook generation anti-social?

Message  gerardM le Sam 14 Déc - 21:26

Hi everyone,

Good question (so I think Smile ).

-> (telegraph.co.uk) Is the Facebook generation anti-social?
A new film, The Bling Ring, highlights how teenagers want to broadcast their lives via a screen, rather than savouring the moment. Has this generation lost touch with reality?
Sometimes the kids can look like they’re living in another world. While the day whirls around them, they’re lost in their mobile phones – photographing, Tweeting, texting, emailing. Living life doesn’t seem be enough; they have to record and share it, too. It raises the questions: “How widespread is this phenomenon” and “Should we be worried about it?”

The Young generation  needs an audience, they can't just live and forget . I heard on the radio that Face book helps them to have the impression that their lives are interesting. Are they narcissistic ? I think so. Perhaps it is good for their development and self-esteem, perhaps it is just smokescreen. I don't know.  scratch

Hi Muriel,

> Perhaps it is good for their development and self-esteem, perhaps it is just smokescreen.
Maybe more worrisome.

I often watch the American society to try to guess what the French one might become.

Video-games in which deaths are multiple...
TV reality shows...
Sportsman wages...
Top model fashion...
Singer success...

When I see young people able to use weapons in schools for a few hour global success, I'm worried. Sad

Hi Gérard.
The virtual world is dangerous and young people should remain linked to the real world. A good balance is important. Anyway we could  weigh up Facebook and virtual world  pros and cons. It should be used moderately. What I like is that that it creates links between people 
Video games when you can kill people are bad of course. I don't like them but I have read that they are good for the brain.
