Emails and social networking websites like Facebook are disrupting family life, a new study has claimed - AP.
In today’s world, they may be the best way to keep in contact with others, but emails and social networking websites like Facebook are disrupting family life, a new study has claimed.
Researchers at Cambridge University have found that family life is being disrupted as parents and kids are overwhelmed by the huge volumes of emails and social messaging updates they are handling each day.
As a result, one in three Brits isare now desperate to cut down use of Twitter and Facebook as well as emails, the ‘Daily Mail’ reported.
Surprisingly, the study, based on a survey, also found children as well as adults preferred to communicate face to face. More than half of all families said a “technology-free” time is important and a third of parents said technology had disrupted family life.
Amongst children aged 10 to 18, who have grown up with new technology, 38 per cent of respondents admitted to feeling overwhelmed by the volume of messages. And, similar numbers of adults felt the same way.
Technology should be a tool but should never allowed to replace Family, Friends or other Relations!
