It has long been known that prolonged exposure to the Internet has a negative impact on both physical and mental health of the Internet user. Another study on this topic, conducted by Dutch scientists found that in addition to the known side effects provided by the Internet on human health, it also deprives someone of the ability to make jokes and sense of humor. First of all, this applies to teenagers.
7 years ago, 8 out of 10 Dutch schoolchildren told anecdotes, while at the moment, more than half of the same number can not do, and plus they don't even think about to make a joke. Anyway, as you say Dutch social researchers, people gradually lose the habit to communicate with each other and make jokes. This situation is due to the fact that all my free time a person spends on the world wide web, and one of the communication methods of communication, which is the real communication with each other, gradually goes nowhere, giving this place a virtual contacts.
Additionally, scientists had identified another trend in which communication is minimized. Thus, instead spend time on the story, anecdote, people prefer to issue short witty phrase.
