Is social media making teens stupid?

Do you use Twitter or Facebook? Most of us do. So we’re all familiar with “web lingo.” But could social media be making us dumber? Some say so. Teens are among a trend of people using bad grammar, bad punctuation and bad spelling…on purpose! Some say it’s a timesaver to type with the shorter web lingo.

Experts do agree, though that social media and bad grammar just seem to go hand-in-hand. They say the important thing is if a person has the ability to switch from text language to proper grammar.
