The fad of social networks is believed to be changing the way young people speak, especially girls. Experts point out that Facebook and Twitter are changing the way girls speak, making them more aggressive, according to a report by Daily Mail. These social networks are said to promote terser sentences, which can make youngsters appear rude and disrespectful. Marie Clair, of the Plain English Campaign, said, “Young people’s language in general is becoming more direct in comparison to their parents and the business community because of the communication channels they’re more familiar with. Those fast communication channels of Facebook, email and Twitter [that] they’ve grown up with mean they haven’t got as much time to deliberate and choose their words.” This is said to be the reason why these kids come across as being more aggressive unintentionally.
