Is Facebook Destroying Kids' Brains?!

A story on today reveals some interesting ( and surely controversial) new research that claims the internet has been "infantilising" our brains - nothing new, since people have been saying that tv will rot your brain since before the internet, and the newest technology ( the internet) is the obvious next target, but what's interesting about this article is that it says that social networking sites and online gaming specifically are more harmful to our brains. Kinda scary for any WOW or facebook addicts.
