Something that I have been interested in learning more about has been how texting continues to affect the literacy and social interactions of teenagers. I remember my mom talking about it when we were watching the news, but I wasn’t able to assimilate texting with reading and writing skills. Lately, the issue has caught my eye again. I know that many people feel that teenagers in today’s society are the end to the world as we know it. From what I have heard, texting creates shortcuts and causes the English language to deteriorate.
