Social Networking User? Yes?...Then you're a bad person!
Just as my feelings towards social networking are beginning to mellow slightly, I'm told that it's making me a 'bad person'. Great.
From the Metro 14.04.09:
Using Facebook or Twitter may make you a bad person because it ruins your moral compass, it has been claimed.
Fast-paced modern media, such as Facebook updates and news feeds on Twitter, do not give us time to reflect and could make us indifferent to human suffering, according to a group of researchers.
Children could be particularly vulnerable because their brains are still developing, it was claimed.
'If things are happening too fast, you may not ever fully experience emotions about other people's psychological states and that would have implications for your morality,' said researcher Mary Helen Immordino-Yang, from the University of Southern California.
