While I applaud the question, I believe that the core idea may be a little bit off. The idea that texting or using facebook is an actual means of interpersonal communication is the root of the problem. For some reason (and when I say some, I actually mean sum, as in the sum of a corporate propaganda machine and media influence on society) the idea that actual communication can take place on these platforms has planted itself deeply in our brains. We have this idea in our head, that a :) can replace actual joy and that a :( can take the place of sadness. These emotions are what define experience in our memories, they are what mold us into the people that we become. Is it any wonder that research is coming out that points to a "depressed and sad society," caused by a reliance on these false modes of communication.
What's more is that these platforms give people free reign spew hate and never have to face the consequences. When tucked behind a computer screen, safely in a dark room, people feel free to express opinions that they would never contemplate saying to someones face. They start dramas just to watch them play out on a computer screen, essentially harming life after life due to some morbid curiosity. Instead of actual knowledge gained from intelligent interpersonal communication, they chose instead to gather as many "friends" as possible and call themselves popular.
Over 800 million people now subscribe to the book of face, is it any wonder we are in the place we are in as a species, staring at a computer screen, forfeiting life experience for brief moments of satisfaction, slowly losing all that makes us special to all that makes us ordinary.
