Anecdotal evidence of positive outcomes from these technologies — such as political activities organized via Facebook or jobs found through LinkedIn — is well-known, but now a growing corpus of academic research on social networks sites supports this view as well.

And they just have some type of nervous tension disorder or something.or they could just be afraid of authority figures. That's the reason why I say that its not a good thing.
