Yes

  • Social networking sites are a major distraction to students in classrooms with computers or wireless internet. Students that are on social networking sites in schools are distracted from real learning. They may be in a classroom during a lecture and have their laptop out, considered acceptable and useful for note-taking, but are instead browsing friends' profiles on a social networking site. Students can easily get away with this because their screens generally face away from the professor and lecturer. The temptation is apparently too great to resist, and it is unreasonable to expect that teachers can somehow regulate this problem effectively; they can't walk around the room constantly checking what is on students' screens. This problem is so widespread, so unresolvable by other means, and so unfortunate to quality education, that it is reasonable for schools to take the decisive step of blocking student access to these sites through school or classroom computers or over local area wireless networks in the classroom.
