Let's hear it for isolation (substitutes first-hand in-your-face interaction with others, responsible for social retardation and inability to handle in-the-trench incidents when encountered in the real world); if limited to myth/fun/games only, produces a lack of activity (excercise) leading to couch potato (obesity), etc

Modern technology, unchecked, overseen, and full of loophole rules and regulations, is one of the largest infestations humans have had to deal with.

There're always two sides of a coin

The "actions" to take plug the info source twice - "Purchase blocking software" and "Employ Internet accountability software." That software provider has a clear religious bent: have a look at their website. At least one of the info points only gives half the story (teens who text more than average are even more likely than those who spend a long time on social networks to binge drink etc - I found it with a 5-second google query) and I don't know why a counseling degrees website is plugging this info except to get itself more publicity. Sure, these are things to be aware of, but I wouldn't trust the source.
