Do you feel adults and teens face any danger in the fact that

they depend on computer screens rather than face-to-face contact as the main means of communication? We all know that technology makes things so easy these days, but is there a danger in this?

  • I think constantly living in a virtual world has definite disadvantages. Kids will learn to hide behind screen names and will not be socially adept in the real world.

  • I wouldn't say danger, but I don't think kids would be as social in person. I think some kids use it as a way of communicating and not revealing who they are. But caution should be used when communicating online. Sometimes, some things aren't as private as they claim to be.

  • I wouldn't say "danger", I think it could impact our social skills in a negative way. Its supposed to be healthy to have human to human contact and it seems technology has replaced that.
