Social Media: Threat or Menace?  
The Times Book Review leads off with two books about the evil of on-screen communication, as if people could not dehumanize and bully one another face-to-face. Since I may have saved my life many years ago by discovering a communications medium (fanzines) that enabled me to get to know people without having social skills, I have my doubts. It's a disability issue.

A disability issue, and hypocrisy on the part of the book review: "Here, look at this piece of paper, which will tell you to read another piece of paper, which will tell you how you shouldn't be reading a screen."
