Technological advancements for social improvement?

Sustain the connection for growthI’m all for the creation of technological gadgets, but does the overall result increase communications socially within society or is their a growing element of social disengagement within our communities as more and more people become attached to the popular social networking sites where some negate normal social graces and behaviours.

Feeling safe behind the computer, blackberry, mobile phone, people are linked into their social network buddies and proceed to dish out what can only be deemed as anti-social behaviour with the type of language that is used. It seems that there is an imbalance in that society has been given a tool to social network, but have not been given the skills to operate it with the correct social etiquette.

Maybe a social entrepreneur could look at taking forward this need, as reports of cyber bullying, divorces, relationship breakups and downright rudeness are on the increase on social networking sites.
