The creative spark. Teens Go Tech-Free in 'Social Experiment': No Facebook, Texting for One Week. <br/><a href=" US News</a> | <a href=" Business News</a> Copy Facebook and texting are like food and water for modern-day teenagers.
They think in status updates, check e-mail before brushing their teeth and fall asleep while texting. Nicholi Wytovicz, a student at Shorecrest High School in Shoreline, Wash., said his social network usage is extreme. "I wake up, I check Facebook, I check Twitter," he said.
