From article:

Social networks such as Twitter may blunt people’s sense of morality, claim brain scientists.

New evidence shows the digital torrent of information from networking sites could have long-term damaging effects on the emotional development of young people’s brains.

A study suggests rapid-fire news updates and instant social interaction are too fast for the ‘moral compass’ of the brain to process.

The danger is that heavy Twitters and Facebook users could become ‘indifferent to human suffering’ because they never get time to reflect and fully experience emotions about other people’s feelings.

Full stop no need to go any further in the article.

Wow, just wow and they say that games are bad, maybe they should look at this to, maybe facebook and twitter should come with a warning label?

Warning may make you indifferent to human suffering.

Now thats a slogan, that I don´t want on my site.

Original site.

WOG out.
