Some people say that Myspace, Facebook, Friend Project, etc. Are making teens more ignorant. False. These websites tech teens or adults, to type faster and correct their grammer. Thats what it did for me. I'm an A+ student, and I work hard in school, and thanks to sits like these my grammer has been excellent, and I type faster than my mother who works in an office. My parents say that it's a waste and it's really not. Another advantage that it has is some people don't text, or even leave their own homes, so Myspace and such helps teens and adults, or whatever get help from friends and family. Like issues that are going on or things they need to do for school.
While Myspace, Facebook, etc are helping teens connect with others from all over the world, these sites are in fact hurting the grammar and speaking skills of this new generation. While my opponent claims she is an A+ student and has great grammar skills, I beg to disagree. Her first post is littered with numerous misspellings, incorrect capitalization, and sentence fragments. These are basic grammar skills that have obviously been lost through her over-use of text messaging, e-mail, Myspace, Facebook, etc.
If my opponent's grammar mistakes are not proof enough, a 2003 BBC article reports that not only is the recent technology surge creating grammar problems amongst teens, but is also affecting teens' ability to conduct research for papers. http://www.oreillynet.com...
Alright, since my opponent forfeited this round, I have absolutely nothing to respond to. All I can do is say look at her grammar mistakes and tell me hours and hours of time spent on networking websites didn't cause that.
