In this age of social networking sites, we mostly prefer to communicate using SMS or Short Message Service. Do you think somehow this `communication procedure` is affecting our spelling and vocabulary power?

I have faith on technology and social networking sites. And I believe that social networking sites push us to improve our writing skills. Once we post our statements or whatever, it gets world wide exposure. So automatically we become concerned about the way we compose our sentences. What you pointed out is true but it entirely up to us whether we want to deteriorate our spelling and vocabulary power or not. The control button is in our hand.

Actually you know what Sheena, using short cuts in sentences has become a `cool- trend`.

I think these short cuts are affecting our creativity. We are not emphasizing on flowery language anymore. Here I am not talking about overuse of adjectives and adverbs. I am focusing on the creative sides of human beings. Every human being is creative in his own way and social networking sites are a fine medium to nurture that side through written communication. Depending on short cuts definitely will not enhance one`s creativity. This will simply limit one`s thinking power.

I totally agree with you Anamika. To tell you the truth, even I use short cuts but from now on I won`t repeat this.
