Would someone with Alzheimer's score equivalent to someone without the disease?
Good question for additional research. The article did not address that issue.
At the same time, Christenfeld's comparison of posts on Facebook with pre-literate communication is memorable. I considered, then dropped, the headline for this article to read, "Facebook as Pre-Literate Communication." I'm guessing that the same thing can also be said about other social media, they don't, as a category, cross the bar for literacy or for truthiness.
LOL. Colbert's lexicon.
