I think some people may be confusing conmunicating with grammar? Yes, Facebook, Twitter, texting and email are great ways for staying in touch with friends and family if you can’t get to see them often (although I know people who Facebook and text people in the same house!) so they aid communication; however I think it could definitely be said that they have contributed to the decline in correct grammatical usage and spelling. I was told by an English teacher recently that she had marked an assignment which was full of “text speak” and the student didn’t understand that it was contextually inappropriate. I found that disturbing.
