Not sure how much weight I would give any of these studies but times are a changing. Kids don't even learn to drive anymore so that assumes they stay home more. I hated being home but nowadays with the internet and Netflix, its not so bad. It will be interesting to see the social changes with humans over time.
    True, but I think you'll also find reporting that teens feel more isolated and socially awkward, too.

    Over 65% of communication between two humans who are chatting in person is non-verbal. Chatting on line simply ins't the same thing, any more than this conversation between you and I is anything like the same conversation we might have if we were sitting having coffee at a cafe somewhere.

    Wait, why would a replicated Vulcan science officer be willing to go with me like luggage?

    I agree and I do think a lot of this non face time is causing us to be a bit more callous. People feel free to say things on a social internet site whereas if you were face to face one would bite their tongue. Or we would see the commonality between us more than the difference and find common ground. I do think though we will see less and less contact going forward. Companies use meeting sites and other tools and one team may never actually meet another. I communicate daily with people I never have met and might never. So its definitely changing the way we interact and I admit its far easier to get annoyed or angry with non verbal communication than face to face. I think its causing a lot of this bad behavior we see drifting from the interweb over to real life and it isn't pleasant.

    Immigrants are particularly hard hit when unskilled labor jobs go away. Most people who arrive in this country take these jobs as they don't speak the language. It will be a problem going forward.

    Because once she's gone human, she'll never go back.

    Vulcan males are such BORING lovers. Cold. Unemotional. Like Mr. Spock. How many lovers did HE have? Almost NONE!!! See?

    That's definitely way down. Few teens work at all anymore. Or drive.
