While I can believe this, I don't think it's entirely these forms of communication's fault. While texting and Facebook does make it easier to communicate to more people privately and therefore, gives teens more of a chance to talk about and plan these kinds of activities, I don't think we can solely blame this behavior on the ways we communicate. Our society and what it values must also be taken into consideration. Our society has put good values on a back burner and what teens today see is Hollywood stars that are their age that are engaging in these activities and they look up to them and want to do these things themselves. I think these bad role models and the easiness of communicating with other teens privately have caused this spike in this kind of behavior.
