|Do you think video games, chat rooms, etc. have a dangerous addictive
effect on teenagers?
If parents control this it should never become dangerous or addictive. I feel the video games should be less violent. Chat rooms should simply be blocked to any teenager.
No, I do not think so. And if they did parents should take more accountability than the creators of video games and chat rooms.
does on some but just a different conversational style for most
Yes they're fun, easy, and risk-free, but parents and/or community could still get they're kids out.
Yes, because you can keep interacting with others in a virtual reality for an absurd length of time, far longer than would be appropriate or interesting in real life. Narrow-bandwidth lines of communication helps us project our fantasy world onto our monitors. The hypnotic light-bulb screen keeps us there.
They're like everything else...
yes i do. because it addicting and teenager sometime doesn't understand when they have to stop their video games and chatting activities.
Addictive? Meh. I believe the real problem is that there is an entire generation coming up that can't cook unless it's in a microwave, thinks that lashing out wildly and ruining people's lives on the internet is funny and a great way to pass the time, thinks it knows every effing thing even though it's been infantilised and coddled, and believes that Facebook is the most important thing in the world. My generation is the time-waster generation. Nobody can build anything but they sure as shit will tear down what you build. I think it bodes poorly for our future (humanity's, that is).
Its the parents responsibility that teenagers don't go overboard on Video Games.
But Chat rooms and social networking sites can be highly addictive, and teenagers are very prone to being taken advantage of and even bullied.
Regulation on the Internet is a big issue, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) forever debates the issue of regulation on the Internet in contrast the people's privacy.
Always but addiction is a part of human nature.
Not, when they using it in a creative way
There is the potential for addiction, yes. But not all teenagers engaged in those activities are addicted, just as not everybody who drinks is alcoholic.
Yeah, I believe it very much can. Many of them now think of their "real life" as existing on the interwebs, and of it not as a tool, but as some perpetual cathedral wherein to worship...uh...Bill Gates, or the latest viral vlogger, while actual life takes on the unreal luster of the average video game. WAKE UP, AMERICA! Pull the plug and get Ashley and Bobby out into some meaningful activity.
There, much better.
