According to new research, using websites like Twitter and Facebook may affect a person's morals. The study findings were reported by the Brain and Creativity institute at the University of Southern California.

The study showed that certain mental processes are better suited to the pace of social networking and digital media. Humans are able to rationalize information and respond to physical pain in others quickly.

However, the study claims that other attributes like admiration and compassion take a longer process. The study suggests that with the increase in social media use humans don’t have the time needed to reflect on the full impact of events.
