I know, that’s a big question. I’m sure there are thousands of answers, opinions, and convictions about how to use twitter, facebook, myspace, texting, and blogs. Josh Harris recently posted about using twitter during church and his thoughts for his congregration, Covenant Life Church. Albert Mohler writes about texting among teenagers and the all-consuming nature of technology.
Listen to this quote from the NY Times I found pretty humorous about teens texting: “They do it late at night when their parents are asleep. They do it in restaurants and while crossing busy streets. They do it in the classroom with their hands behind their back. They do it so much their thumbs hurt. Authorities now blame excessive texting for sleep deprivation, distraction in school, poor grades, and even repetitive stress injuries. These teens are texting while they should be sleeping, and they are sleeping with the cell phone set to vibrate so that they can respond to texts from friends without waking parents.”
Where’s the line? When is it too much? When is it beneficial and when does it lose it’s benefit?
