I agree with this. Peoples are becoming less social because all they do is sit at home and type on their computers or Pad.

My opponent holds the burden to prove that screens make us more Isolated

As my opponent offers no definitions, for screens or isolation, I will offer my own,

Screen

a flat panel or area on an electronic device such as a television, computer, or smartphone, on which images and data are displayed.

Isolation
4. (Sociology) a lack of contact between persons, groups, or whole societies

Instead I argue that screen give us more ways to communicate.
Debate Round No. 1

Lienju forfeited this round.

Con

My opponent has forfeited and therefore not fulfilled his BoP

He also doesn't take into account that social networking sites, Such as Facebook, Twitter, Viber, and Skype, as well as DDO, grants us the opportunity to interact with family and friends from all over the world, at any given moment.

I hope Pro makes an argument in the third round.
